Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere

Week 6

There has arisen from its narrow limits
My self and finds itself
As revelation of all worlds
Within the sway of time and space;
The world, as archetype divine,
Displays to me at every turn
The truth of my own likeness.

Southern Hemisphere

Week 32

I feel my own force, bearing fruit
And gaining strength to give me to the world.
My inmost being I feel charged with power
To turn with clearer insight
Toward the weaving of life's destiny.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Lesson 41

Berlin, 1-6-'12

Appeal to the spirit of Saturday.

When one gets further on the occult path through meditation and concentration, one gets to know one's doppelganger to whom one is chained. One experiences a feeling of loneliness with respect to the world and even with respect to one's loved ones. This feeling makes one strong and one should cultivate it. Another feeling that one should practice is one of thankfulness towards spiritual beings in the meditation: In pure rays of light gleams the Godhead of the world …

Another thing is not to talk to others about the exercise that was given to one or about esoteric things in general. Silence awakens forces; chatter weaken the etheric body.
