Calendar of the Soul

Sixth Verse

Ecclesiastical Calculation

Thirty-second Week

  There has arisen from its narrow limits
  My self and finds itself
  As revelation of all worlds
  Within the sway of time and space;
  The world, as archetype divine,
  Displays to me at every turn
  The truth of my own likeness.

English translation by Ruth and Hans Pusch

  Es ist erstanden aus der Eigenheit
  Mein Selbst und findet sich
  Als Weltenoffenbarung
  In Zeit- und Raumeskräften;
  Die Welt, sie zeigt mir überall
  Als göttlich Urbild
  Des eignen Abbilds Wahrheit.

The Year Participated translation
by Owen Barfield

  `I feel the very Being of my being,'
  so the responsive soul,
  which in a wide world rinsed with radiant sun
  with flowing light grows one;
  imparting warmth to mind's transparency,
  such is her will,
  so knitting man and world in unison.
