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

Reading the Pictures of the Apocalypse
GA 104a
Part Two

We are daily overwhelmed by pictures of the world situation which reflect mighty spiritual events in our time. Our task is to learn to rightly read these pictures and make judgments about them. This book offers rich opportunities for such practice, or inner schooling, so that we can meet the world situation in full wakefulness.

These lectures, consisting of listener's notes, present Steiner's account of the meaning of the most esoteric book in the Bible.

Themes include: the nature of the third millennium; Sorat and the significance of the number 666; the War of All against All; the Second Coming of Christ; and the true nature of the I and the possible futures open to it — futures that depend upon our actions now.

The illustration on the cover is drawn from these lectures. It represents the occult sign for the Intelligence of the Sun, the Christ, the adversary of Sorat, the Demon of the Sun. Translated by James H. Hindes. Preface by Virginia Sease.
