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

Knowledge as a Source of Healing
GA 198

Two lectures, numbers one and two of seventeen, from the lecture series entitled, Healing of the Social Organism, published in German as, Heilfaktoren fuer den Sozialen Organismus. They were given by Rudolf Steiner at Berlin, in the Spring of 1920. The first of these lectures has been subtitled, Therapeutic Activity in Science, Art, and Social Development.

The lectures focus on: the concept of disease in old and new times; the blue-blindness of the Greeks; diseased forces of our intellectual life; the life-time gap between natural necessity and morality and its overcoming. Both lectures have been translated by Violet E. Watkin.
