Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 36

Within my being's depths there speaks,
Intent on revelation,
The cosmic Word mysteriously:
Imbue your labor's aims
With my bright spirit light
To sacrifice yourself through me.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 10

To summer's radiant heights
The sun in shining majesty ascends;
It takes my human feeling
Into its own wide realms of space.
Within my inner being stirs
Presentiment which heralds dimly,
You shall in future know:
A godly being now has touched you.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Michaelmas and the Soul-Forces of Man
GA 223

In these lectures Steiner shows us the need to “expand the horizon of life into the breadth of the world” so that we can overcome the contemporary “hermit existence.” This volume along with Cycle of the Year completes the entire German volume GA 223.

The four lectures in this volume were given in Vienna, September 27 to October 1, 1923. In the Collected Edition of Rudolf Steiner's works, the volume containing the German texts is entitled, Der Jahreskreislauf als Atmungsvorgang der Erde und die vief grossen Festeszeiten (Vol. 223 in the Bibliographic Survey). Translated by Samuel and Loni Lockwood
