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

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Anthroposophical Ethics
GA 155

Based on a study of the life of Francis of Assisi, Steiner shows how the development of morality is based on the belief in the Divine at the bottom of every human soul, on the boundless love that springs from this belief, and on the hope for each human soul that it can find its way back to the Divine.

This volume is a translation from the German of Christus und die Menschliche Seele. Ueber den Sinn des Lebens. Theosophische Moral. Anthroposophie und Christentum, (Vol. 155 in the Bibliographical Survey. 1961.), three lectures given by Rudolph Steiner at Norrköping, Sweden, May 28-29-30, 1912, translated and edited by H. Collison.
