Calendar of the Soul

Northern Hemisphere
Week 13

And when I live in senses' heights,
There flames up deep within my soul
Out of the spirit's fiery worlds
The gods' own word of truth:
In spirit sources seek expectantly
To find your spirit kinship.

Southern Hemisphere
Week 39

Surrendering to spirit revelation
I gain the light of cosmic being;
The power of thinking, growing clearer,
Gains strength to give myself to me,
And quickening there frees itself
From thinker's energy my sense of self.

—Translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

See GA 40 for full calendar and German text.

Planetary Spheres and Their Influence on Mans Life on Earth and in the Spiritual Worlds

In these lectures, Rudolf Steiner describes the after-death states and the experiences we undergo, the influences of Ahrimanic Beings, man's spiritual connections with the planetary powers, and the preparations for re-incarnation. In death we learn the significance and meaning of death on earth, and this enlightening book reveals with clarity and vision something of the vastness of our earthly and cosmic existences.

Formerly published privately for members. Translated from the German by George and Mary Adams.
