Calendar of the Soul Verses

Tenth Week / Forty Third Week

Here is the next installment of the Calendar of the Soul verses for this week (#10) and its polar opposite (#43). Note how the verses have diverged from the lemniscate's crossing point at Easter, (which is Verse #1 with Polar verse #52). We are now just 2 weeks from St. John's Tide (#12), which occurs right after the Summer Solstice and marks the top of the lemniscate. (Christmas marks the bottom.)

This week's verse (#10) has dates of: June 9 -15
The polar verse (#43) corresponds to the week: January 26 - February 1

10. Woche (9. - 15. Juni)
Zu sommerlichen Hoehen
Erhebt der Sonne leuchtend Wesen sich;
Es nimmt mein menschlich Fuehlen
In seine Raumesweiten mit.

Erahnend regt im Innern sich
Empfindung, dumpf mir kuendend,
Erkennen wirst du einst:

Dich fuehlte jetzt ein Gotteswesen.

10th week: (June 9 - 15)
High in the summer heights,
the illuminating Sun-being rises
and carries my human feeling
into the far reaches of space.

Deep within me
a foreboding sensation occurs---
faintly it tells me:

"One day you will realize
that today, a divine being felt you."

43. Woche (26. Januar - 1. Februar)
In winterlichen Tiefen
Erwarmt des Geistes wahres Sein;
Es gibt dem Weltenscheine
Durch Herzenskraefte Daseinsmaechte;
Der Weltenkaelte trotzt erstarkend
Das Seelenfeuer im Menscheninnern.

43rd week: (January 26 - February 1)
Down in the wintry depths,
the true essence of spirit is seething---
it is endowing cosmic appearance
with powers of existing
through forces of the heart.

The fire within the human being,
now growing strong,
defies cosmic cold.
