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

Lesson 37

Berlin, 3-18-'06

To meditate means to open one's soul to the master so that he can give you impulses at night. The astral body gets instructions unconsciously at first, but this will get more & more conscious. At first insights in day consciousness that one can't explain, later higher and day consciousnesses simultaneously.

There are no difficulties on the path except those the pupil creates for himself and which the divine part in him couldn't overcome.
