Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 18

Can I expand my soul
That it unites itself
With cosmic Word received as seed?
I sense that I must find the strength
To fashion worthily my soul
As fitting raiment for the spirit.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 44

In reaching for new sense attractions,
Soul-clarity would fill,
Mindful of spirit-birth attained,
The world's bewildering, sprouting growth
With the creative will of my own thinking.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Prayers for Mothers and Children

Spoken by the Mother for the Child

May light flow into thee, that can take hold of thee.

I follow its rays with the warmth of my love,

I think with the best glad thoughts of my thinking on the leaping of thy heart.

They are to strengthen thee, they are to bear thee up, they are to keep thee pure.

I would fain gather my glad thoughts into thy steps on the paths of life,

So they link themselves to thine own will of life

That this may find itself in strength in all the world ever more through its own self.
