Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere—
Summer Solstice
Week 11

In this the sun's high hour it rests
With you to understand these words of wisdom:
Surrender to the beauty of the world,
Be stirred with new-enlivened feeling;
The human I can lose itself
And find itself within the cosmic I.

Southern Hemisphere—
Winter Solstice
Week 37

To carry spirit light into world-winter-night
My heart is ardently impelled,
That shining seeds of soul
Take root in grounds of worlds
And Word Divine through senses' darkness
Resounds, transfiguring all life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Karmic Relationships II
GA 236

Editorial Note

The attention of readers is called to the fact that the fundamental explanations given by Rudolf Steiner of the laws and conditions of karma are contained in Vol. I of the series. Knowledge of the earlier lectures should therefore be regarded as an essential basis for study of those contained in the later volumes.
