Calendar of the Soul XLIV

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

Ergreifend neue Sinnesreize
Erfüllet Seelenklarheit,
Eingedenk vollzogener Geistgeburt,
Verwirrend sprossend Weltenwerden
Mit meines Denkens Schöpferwillen.


Behold! The shimmering weft of senses
Made manifest by inner light
Before the seeing soul, the Spirit’s birth,
A secret sprouting from the solid Earth
To scale the airy ladder wrought
Of my own self-willed and self-creating thought.

    You know it’s funny, in the program I’m in right now–another student who is doing his dissertation on Steiner, and I, are engaged in a near month-long discussion of him.

      Hello! I try to make myself one of Rudolf Steiner’s sons in my spiritual-intellectual life. I would love to participate in your discussion in some way.

        Hard to really imagine how that will go. But I’ll politely nudge him in your blog’s direction. Maybe he’ll leave a comment. Maybe he won’t. I see him on Thursday at our next seminar.
