Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 34

In secret inwardly to feel
How all that I've preserved of old
Is quickened by new-risen sense of self:
This shall, awakening, pour forth cosmic forces
Into the outer actions of my life
And growing, mould me into true existence.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 8

The senses' might grows strong
United with the gods' creative work;
It presses down my power of thinking
Into a dreamlike dullness.
When godly being
Desires union with my soul,
Must human thinking
In quiet dream-life rest content.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Cosmic Workings In Earth and Man
Various GAs

Six lectures given to workmen at the Goetheanum, Dornach, Switzerland. Lectures I and II, were translated by M. Cotterell; Lectures III and VI, by D. S. Osmond; Lectures IV and V, by V. E. Evans.

The lectures in this volume have been selected from the very large number given regularly by Dr. Steiner to the workmen employed at the Goetheanum. The two preceding volumes of the same series contain lectures dealing with the religious life and ideas of ancient peoples and the significance of the Christian impulse.
