Calendar of the Soul

ST. JOHN'S TIDE

Northern Hemisphere
Week 12

The radiant beauty of the world
Compels my inmost soul to free
God-given powers of my nature
That they may soar into the cosmos,
To take wing from myself
And trustingly to seek myself
In cosmic light and cosmic warmth.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 38

The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being's godly roots.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

Here are two lectures given in London on the 17th and 18th of November 1922. They are from the lecture series entitled: Spiritual Relationships in the Human Organism and published in German as: Geistiger Zusammenhaenge in der Gestaltung des Menschlichen Organismus.

These two lectures were translated by D. S. Osmond from horthand reports unrevised by the Lecturer. The translation has been made from a much abbreviated German text. They are published in agreement with the Rudolf Steiner Publishing Co.
