Calendar of the Soul Verses

Thirty Sixth Week / Seventeenth Week

Here is the next pair of Calendar of the Soul verses for this week (#36) and its polar opposite (#17). Note how the verses have diverged from the lemniscate's crossing point at Michaelmas, (which is Verse #26 with Polar verse #27). We are moving towards Christmas (#38), which occurs right after the Winter Solstice and marks the bottom of the lemniscate. (St. John's Tide marks the top).

This week's verse (#36) has dates of: December 8 - 14
The polar verse (#17) corresponds to the week: July 28 - August 3

Zu opfern dich durch mich.

In the depths of my being,
full of mystery,
surging toward revelation,
the Cosmic Word speaks:

"Fulfill the goals of your work
with my spirit light
to sacrifice yourself through me."

17. Woche (28. Juli - 3. August)
Es spricht das Weltenwort,
Das ich durch Sinnestore
In Seelengruende durfte fuehren:

Erfuelle deine Geistestiefen
Mit meinen Weltenweiten,
Zu finden einstens mich in dir.

17th week: (July 28 - August 3)
I may now lead the Cosmic Word
through the gateways of my senses
into the foundations of my soul.
It speaks:

"Let my cosmic majesty
fill the depths of your spirit
so that one day soon
you may discover
myself in you."
