Calendar of the Soul

[October 14, 2018 - October 20, 2018]
Twenty-ninth Week

  To fan the spark of thinking into flame
  By my own strong endeavor,
  To read life's inner meaning
  Out of the cosmic spirit's fount of strength:
  This is my summer heritage,
  My autumn solace, and my winter hope.


English translation
by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Sich selbst des Denkens Leuchten
  Im Innern kraftvoll zu entfachen,
  Erlebtes sinnvoll deutend
  Aus Weltengeistes Kräftequell,
  Ist mir nun Sommererbe,
  Ist Herbstesruhe und auch Winterhoffnung.


The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Vigorously to kindle here within
  the shining light of thought,
  from out of the World-spirit's well of strength
  to draw up meaning and make sense
  of past experience:
  all this for me is summertime's bequest,
  is winter's hope and autumn's rest.
