48. Woche (2. - 8. Maerz)
Im Lichte, das aus Weltenhoehen
Der Seele machtvoll fliessen will,
Erscheine, loesend Seelenraetsel,
Des Weltendenkens Sicherheit,
Versammelnd seiner Strahlen Macht,
Im Menschenherzen Liebe weckend.

48th week: ( March 2 - 8)
Let the certainty of cosmic thinking appear
in the Light! ---

that longs to flow
forcefully into my soul:

solving riddles of the soul,

focusing the force of its rays,

awakening love in human hearts.

5. Woche (5. - 11. Mai)
Im Lichte, das aus Geistestiefen
In Raume fruchtbar webend
Der Goetter Schaffen offenbart:

In ihm erscheint der Seele Wesen
Geweitet zu dem Weltensein
Und auferstanden
Aus enger Selbstheit Innenmacht.

5th week: (May 5 - 11)
How the gods create
from the depths of the spirit
reveals itself in the Light
weaving prolifically in space.

In this Light appears
the being of my Soul---
as wide now as the universe---

even resurrected
from the inward power
of my narrow self.
