Calendar of the Soul

[September 23, 2018 - September 29, 2018]
Twenty-sixth Week

  O Nature, your maternal life
  I bear within the essence of my will.
  And my will's fiery energy
  Shall steel my spirit striving,
  That sense of self springs forth from it
  To hold me in myself.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Natur, dein mütterliches Sein,
  Ich trage es in meinem Willenswesen;
  Und meines Willens Feuermacht,
  Sie stählet meines Geistes Triebe,
  Dass sie gebären Selbstgefühl,
  Zu tragen mich in mir.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  O Mother Nature, thee I bear
  within me as the substance of my will,
  my fiery will that tempers as to steel
  the promptings of my spirit, till they be
  mine, and I bear abroad Myself in me.
