Calendar of the Soul
(Southern Hemisphere)

Fiftieth Verse

Twenty-fourth Week

  Thus to the human ego speaks
  In mighty revelation,
  Unfolding its inherent powers,
  The joy of growth throughout the world:
  I carry into you my life
  From its enchanted bondage
  And so attain my truest goal.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Es spricht zum Menschen-Ich,
  Sich machtvoll offenbarend
  Und seines Wesens Kräfte lösend,
  Des Weltendaseins Werdelust:
  In dich mein Leben tragend
  Aus seinem Zauberbanne,
  Erreiche ich mein wahres Ziel.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  Itself-creating still
  soul-substance goes on to be self-aware;
  refreshed in new self-knowledge lives
  on the World-spirit, onward strives
  forging from those dark places of the soul
  her felt identity, the fruit of Will.
