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

The Universal Human
Various GAs

In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the evolutionary task facing contemporary humanity as it prepares to enter the sixth epoch. In the past, human souls felt a strong connection with the group soul to which they belonged. Today, all “group soul” characteristics — such as race and nation — must be stripped off.

Of the last lecture, Rudi Lissau writes: “No anthroposophist should approach racial problems without first pondering this lecture and its implications.”

Translated by Gilbert Church, and edited by Sabine H. Seiler. The original translation was from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer. Published here with the permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland.
