Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 36

Within my being's depths there speaks,
Intent on revelation,
The cosmic Word mysteriously:
Imbue your labor's aims
With my bright spirit light
To sacrifice yourself through me.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 10

To summer's radiant heights
The sun in shining majesty ascends;
It takes my human feeling
Into its own wide realms of space.
Within my inner being stirs
Presentiment which heralds dimly,
You shall in future know:
A godly being now has touched you.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Occult Reading and Occult Hearing
GA 156

In these heartfelt lectures Steiner took his listeners through the inner experiences and moods of soul that are the vowels and consonants of the spiritual world.

These are the first four of eleven lectures given by Rudolf Steiner at Dornach in the Fall and Winter of 1914. They are from the lecture series entitled, Occult Reading and Occult Hearing, and were published in German as, Okkultes Lesen und Okkultes Hoeren.
