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

Greek and Germanic Mythology in the Light of Esotericism
GA 92

These four lectures, Cosmic History, Greek and German Mythology, are from the lecture series entitled, Occult Truths in Old Myths and Sagas, published in German as, Die Okkulten Wahrheiten Alter Mythen und Sagen. They were previously catalogued in the German edition that bears the title, Kosmische Geschichte. Esoterik in der Griechischen und Germanischen Mythologie (Volume 90f in the Bibliographic Survey, 1961). These lectures were originally a part of Bn/GA 92, but that was changed to Bn/GA 90f, and then back to Bn/GA 92 as of Jan 2003. Translated by Dorothy Lenn
