Calendar of the Soul
(Southern Hemisphere)

Thirty-ninth Verse

Thirteenth Week

  Surrendering to spirit revelation
  I gain the light of cosmic being;
  The power of thinking, growing clearer,
  Gains strength to give myself to me,
  And quickening there frees itself
  From thinker's energy my sense of self.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  An Geistesoffenbarung hingegeben
  Gewinne ich des Weltenwesens Licht.
  Gedankenkraft, sie wächst
  Sich klärend mir mich selbst zu geben,
  Und weckend löst sich mir
  Aus Denkermacht das Selbstgefühl.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Now that my senses are at home on high
  I hear my soul re-echo from her depths
  a fiery message from the gods:
  `Welcome the hint, seek thine own deep relation
  to Spirit in the Spirit's own foundation.'
