Calendar of the Soul

Week 27

When to my being's depths I penetrate,
There stirs expectant longing
That self-observing, I may find myself
As gift of summer sun, a seed
That warming lives in autumn mood
As germinating force of soul.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 1

When out of world-wide spaces
The sun speaks to the human mind,
And gladness from the depths of soul
Becomes, in seeing, one with light,
Then rising from the sheath of self,
Thoughts soar to distances of space
And dimly bind
The human being to the spirit's life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Editorial Note

The attention of readers is called to the fact that fundamental explanations given by Rudolf Steiner of the laws and conditions of karma are contained in Vols. I and II of this series, as well as in many of his other published writings and lectures. Knowledge of these earlier works should therefore be regarded as an essential basis for study of the material contained in this series.
