Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 43

In winter's depths is kindled
True spirit life with glowing warmth;
It gives to world appearance,
Through forces of the heart, the power to be.
Grown strong, the human soul defies
With inner fire the coldness of the world.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 17

Thus speaks the cosmic Word
That I by grace through senses' portals
Have led into my innermost soul:
Imbue your spirit depths
With my wide world horizons
To find in future time myself in you.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

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.
