We are spending time each week with one of the 52 verses from the Calendar of the Soul meditations written in 1912 by Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925).

Today, on Saturday, October 6th 2012, we move to Verse 27 (Week of October 5th – 12th).  The verses were originally written in German by Rudolf Steiner, included here are translations into English and French.

27. Twenty-seventh Week after Easter
(October 5th – 12th)

When to my being’s depths I penetrate,
There stirs expectant longing
That self-observing, I may find myself
As gift of summer sun, a seed
That warming lives in autumn mood
As germinating force of soul.

27. Vingt-septième semaine: 5 – 12 octobre

Pénétrer jusqu’au fond de mon être suscite
Une aspiration qu’un pressentiment suit;
Je la découvre en moi lorsque je m’examine:
C’est le don du soleil d’été.  Comme une graine
Réchauffant l’ambiance de l’automne, il vit,
Surgi de forces de mon âme.

27. Woche:  5 – 12 Oktober
In meines Wesens Tiefen dringen:
Erregt ein ahnungsvolles Sehnen,
Dass ich mich selbstbetrachtend finde,
Als Sommersonnnengabe, die als Keim
In Herbstesstimmung wärmend lebt
Als meiner Seele Kräftetrieb.

The Meditations invite us to develop a deeper understanding of the spiritual forces at work throughout the year.

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).

Next week we return with Verse 28 (October 13th – 19th) until then, be well.
Kindest regards,
Sri Devi
