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

These lectures reveal the Christocentric nature of Steiner's teachings and show the Incarnation of Christ as the pivot of cosmic and human evolution.

Translated from a shorthand report unrevised by the lecturer. This printing says:

The German text is published in the book Okkulte Wissenschaft und Okkulte Entwickelung. Christus zur Zeit des Mysteriums von Golgotha und Christus im zwanzigsten Jahrhundert (Vol. No. 233 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961).

In actuality, these lectures are nos. 1 and 2 of 10 from, Background of the Mystery of Golgotha, Published in German as, Vorstufen zum Mysterium von Golgotha (Vol. No. 152 in the Bibliographical Survey, 1961), formerly Bn 150.2.
