Week 16 July 21-27 Calendar of the Soul by Rudolf Steiner in English, French, German

Namaste Well Wishers,

It’s Saturday, July 21st 2012, as promised, we move to Verse 16 the next of 52 verses from the Calendar of the Soul meditations written by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) in 1912.

The Meditations invite us to develop a deeper understanding of the spiritual forces at work throughout the year, using this spiritual research as a path for self knowledge.

For Rudolf Steiner the year begins with Easter so the verses are numbered 1 to 26 for the summer half of the year (Easter to Michaelmas) and verses 27 to 52 for the winter months (Michaelmas to Palm Sunday).

Verse 16 (Week of July 21st – 27th) includes a translation into English and French from the original verse in German by Rudolf Steiner.

16. Sixteenth Week after Easter (July 21-27)

To bear in inward keeping spirit bounty
Is stern command of my prophetic feeling,
That ripened gifts divine
Maturing in the depths of soul
To selfhood bring their fruits.

16. Seizième semaine: 21-27 juillet

Un fort pressentiment nous incite à cacher
Les presents de l’esprit au-dedans de notre être,
Pour que les dons de Dieu mûrissent en notre âme.
Et, produisant leurs fruits,
Nourissent notre moi.

16. Woche 21. – 27. Juli

Zu bergen Geistgeschenk im Innern,
Gebietet strenge mir mein Ahnen,
Dass reifend Gottesgaben
In Seelengründen fruchtend
Der Selbstheit Früchte bringen.

Next will be Verse 17 (July 28 – August 3), until then, be well.
Kindest regards,
Sri Devi
