Calendar of the Soul

Thirty-fourth Week

  In secret inwardly to feel
  How all that I've preserved of old
  Is quickened by new-risen sense of self:
  This shall, awakening, pour forth cosmic forces
  Into the outer actions of my life
  And growing, mould me into true existence.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Geheimnisvoll das Alt-Bewahrte
  Mit neuerstandnem Eigensein
  Im Innern sich belebend fühlen:
  Es soll erweckend Weltenkräfte
  In meines Lebens Aussenwerk ergiessen
  Und werdend mich ins Dasein prägen.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Secretly wrapped within
  to feel the hoarded treasure stir and wake
  alert with lately-born Identity
  is to pour strength belonging to the World
  into the outward structure of my life
  and, as I grow, begin
  to strike my seal into Reality.
