Calendar of the Soul Verses

Twenty Ninth Week / Twenty Fourth Week

Here is the next pair of Calendar of the Soul verses for this week (#29) and its polar opposite (#24). Note how the verses diverge from the lemniscate's crossing point at Michaelmas, (which is Verse #26 with Polar verse #27). We are moving towards Christmas (#38), while the polar verse (#24), is now moving towards St. John's (#13).

The polar verse (#24) corresponds to the week: September 15 -21

29. Woche (20. -26. Oktober)

Sich selbst des Denkens Leuchten
Im Innern kraftvoll zu entfachen,
Erlebtes sinnvoll deutend
Aus Weltengeistes Kraeftequell,

Ist mir nun Sommererbe---

Ist Herbstesruhe---

Und auch Winterhoffnung.


29th week: (October 20 - 26)

To ignite the light of thinking
so forcefully within me---

To live within the meaning
of the cosmic spirit's source of power---

This is for me:

The heritage of summer,

The tranquillity of fall,

The hope of winter.


24. Woche (15. - 21. September)

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.

24th week: (September 15 - 21)

By constantly creating itself,
My soul becomes aware of itself.

The cosmic spirit strives on---
In newly animated self-realization---

And creates out of soul darkness
the fruit of my will---

The sense of myself.
