Calendar of the Soul

[July 15, 2018 - July 21, 2018]
Sixteenth Week

  To bear in inward keeping spirit bounty
  Is stern command of my prophetic feeling,
  That ripened gifts divine
  Maturing in the depths of soul
  To selfhood bring their fruits.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Zu bergen Geistgeschenk im Innern,
  Gebietet strenge mir mein Ahnen,
  Dass reifend Gottesgaben
  In Seelengründen fruchtend
  Der Selbstheit Früchte bringen.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  A hint of warming: harbour well
  the Spirit's bounty, gifts from gods
  are there to ripen, there to swell
  earthed in the soul and, fructifying, bring
  the fruits of Self to light.
