Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 26

O Nature, your maternal life
I bear within the essence of my will.
And my will's fiery energy
Shall steel my spirit striving,
That sense of self springs forth from it
To hold me in myself.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 52

When from the depths of soul
The spirit turns to the life of worlds
And beauty wells from wide expanses,
Then out of heaven's distances
Streams life-strength into human bodies,
Uniting by its mighty energy
The spirit's being with our human life.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

The Gospel of St. John (Basle)
GA 100

Introduction

These notes, composed afterwords from memory by four persons who were present at the lectures, are intended primarily for those who took part in the Course in Basle. In the interest of Spiritual Science we do not wish these notes to be used for the spreading of the ideas contained in them, as they do not reproduce the contents of the lectures word for word but quite freely, and for this reason they may contain many faults. Besides, Dr. Steiner may publish these lectures on St. John's Gospel later. We wish to achieve nothing more through our work then to provide for a few friends who themselves participated in the Cycle, a remembrance of those beautiful November days in Basle.

Basle, January, 1908
