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

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.
