Calendar of the Soul

[March 24, 2019 - March 30, 2019]
Fifty-second Week

  When from the depths of soul
  The spirit turns to the life of worlds
  And beauty wells from wide expanses,
  Then out of heaven's distances
  Streams life-strength into human bodies,
  Uniting by its mighty energy
  The spirit's being with our human life.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Wenn aus den Seelentiefen
  Der Geist sich wendet zu dem Weltensein
  Und Schönheit quillt aus Raumesweiten,
  Dann zieht aus Himmelsfernen
  Des Lebens Kraft in Menschenleiber
  Und einet, machtvoll wirkend,
  Des Geistes Wesen mit dem Menschensein.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  When from a soul's abyss
  Spirit salutes the Being of the world
  and beauty ripples in from far and wide,
  then does there draw from out the vast of heaven
  life with its vigour into human frames
  and mighty workings do unite
  actual Spirit with essential Man.
