Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 18

Can I expand my soul
That it unites itself
With cosmic Word received as seed?
I sense that I must find the strength
To fashion worthily my soul
As fitting raiment for the spirit.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 44

In reaching for new sense attractions,
Soul-clarity would fill,
Mindful of spirit-birth attained,
The world's bewildering, sprouting growth
With the creative will of my own thinking.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Lesson 37

Berlin, 3-18-'06

To meditate means to open one's soul to the master so that he can give you impulses at night. The astral body gets instructions unconsciously at first, but this will get more & more conscious. At first insights in day consciousness that one can't explain, later higher and day consciousnesses simultaneously.

There are no difficulties on the path except those the pupil creates for himself and which the divine part in him couldn't overcome.
