Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 35

Can I know life's reality
So that it's found again
Within my soul's creative urge?
I feel that I am granted power
To make my self, as humble part,
At home within the cosmic self.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 9

When I forget the narrow will of self,
The cosmic warmth that heralds summer's glory
Fills all my soul and spirit;
To lose myself in light
Is the command of spirit vision
And intuition tells me strongly:
O lose yourself to find yourself.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Two Essays on Haeckel
GA 30

These two essays were written by Rudolf Steiner in 1900 and 1905, and are authorized translations from the German. The second essay was also given as a lecture on October 5th 1905 (from GA 54).

This translation of two of Dr. Steiner's works on Haeckel was originally published by the Theosophical Society in one volume with an essay on the Working of Karma. By the courtesy of the Theosophical Society and with the kind consent of the translator, Dr. Bertram Keightley, LL.D., M.A., the parts referring to Haeckel are now reprinted in this volume.
