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

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

The Arts and Their Mission
GA 276

Steiner's extraordinary insights on architecture, sculpture, painting, drama, costuming, music, poetry, eurythmy, and more. From the contents:

“The starting point for a new life of art can come only by direct stimulation from the spiritual world. We must become artists, not by developing symbolism or allegory, but by rising, through spiritual knowledge, more and more into the spiritual world.”

The original German edition was issued under the title: Das Kuenstlerische in seiner Weltmission. Der Genius der Sprache. Die Welt des sich offenbarenden Scheines. Anthroposophie und Kunst. Anthroposophie und Dichtung. Translated by Lisa D. Monges and Virginia Moore.
