Calendar of the Soul XXXIX

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

An Geistesoffenbarung hingegeben
Gewinne ich des Weltenwesens Licht.
Gedankenkraft, sie wächst
Sich klärend mir mich selbst zu geben,
Und weckend löst sich mir
Aus Denkermacht das Selbstgefühl.

∇∆

Surrendering to the Spirit’s revelation
I receive, in turn, the original gift of Light.
The Lógos power, in me, it wakes and waxes
Preparing me for self-oblation,
And condensing from the clouds of self-willed thinking:
The I that knows itself.
