Calendar of the Soul

[June 25, 2017 - July 01, 2017]
Eleventh Week

  In this the sun's high hour it rests
  With you to understand these words of wisdom:
  Surrender to the beauty of the world,
  Be stirred with new-enlivened feeling;
  The human I can lose itself
  And find itself within the cosmic I.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Es ist in dieser Sonnenstunde
  An dir, die weise Kunde zu erkennen:
  An Weltenschönheit hingegeben
  In dir dich fühlend zu durchleben:
  Verlieren kann das Menschen-Ich
  Und finden sich im Welten-Ich.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  This warm and sun-drenched hour
  a sermon holds if thou hast ears to hear:
  Absorbed into the world's fair show
  live thou thy feeling through and through,
  within thee say, `I lose myself as man
  and find myself to be the World I am.'
