Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 19

In secret to encompass now
With memory what I've newly got
Shall be my striving's further aim:
Thus, ever strengthening, selfhood's forces
Shall be awakened from within
And growing, give me to myself.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 45

My power of thought grows firm
United with the spirit's birth.
It lifts the senses' dull attractions
To bright-lit clarity.
When soul-abundance
Desires union with the world's becoming,
Must senses' revelation
Receive the light of thinking.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Atlantis and Lemuria
GA 11

This early writing reconstructs events between the origin of the earth and the beginning of recorded history and include a core investigation of the origins, achievements and fate of the Atlanteans and Lemurians. These remarkable "lost" root races developed the first concepts of "good" and "evil," manipulated the forces of nature, laid the groundwork of all human legal and ethical systems, and defined and nurtured the distinctive yet complementary powers of men and women that brought humankind, many centuries ago, to its highest artistic, intellectual, and spiritual attainments.

The subject matter of this book pertains to the social, economic, cultural, etc. life of very ancient times. This work cannot be called scholarly in the usual narrow sense of the word in that its method of obtaining information is not the usual scholarly one. However, responsible investigative technique and recording are emphasized.

This book is the first English publication — a First Edition — of Steiner's Aus Der Akasha-Chronik. Translated by Max Gysi.
