Calendar of the Soul XXIV

SEELENKALENDAR
“Calendar of the Soul”—Rudolf Steiner’s 52 Verses for the Year
∇ Twenty-fourth Week of the Year ∆
Below is Dr Steiner’s original verse followed by my translation into English.

Sich selbst erschaffend stets,
Wird Seelensein sich selbst gewahr;
Der Weltengeist, er strebet fort
In Selbsterkenntnis neu belebt
Und schafft aus Seelenfinsternis
Des Selbstsinns Willensfrucht.

∇∆

In ceaseless self-creation
The soul wins through to self-awareness;
The world-spirit, striving onward
For it, self-knowledge is
A spring of ceaseless self-renewal
And, in the soul’s twilight—
A spark of intimation
The fruits of sovereign action spring.
