Calendar of the Soul

ST. JOHN'S TIDE

Northern Hemisphere
Week 12

The radiant beauty of the world
Compels my inmost soul to free
God-given powers of my nature
That they may soar into the cosmos,
To take wing from myself
And trustingly to seek myself
In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 38

The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being's godly roots.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Second Scientific Lecture-Course:
Warmth Course
GA 321

Rudolf Steiner discusses the nature of warmth, its relationship to the four states of matter, to light, to color, and to the sub-earthly and super-earthly realms. He strives to extend modern ideas of physics through the understandings achieved by spiritual science. With extensive notes and diagrams, this work comprises essential reference material for teachers of the natural sciences, as well as interested parents and others.

The Second Scientific Lecture-Course: The Warmth Course (The Theory of Heat) — This publication is intended for those with a serious interest in the extension of modern scientific ideas about the physical sciences.

The title, in German, is: Geisteswissenschaftliche Impulse zur Entwickelung der Physik. Zweiter naturwissenschaftlicher Kurs. Die Warme auf der Grenze positiver und negativer Materialitaet.
