Week 38 December 22-28 Calendar of the Soul by Rudolf Steiner in English, French, German

Namaste dear Well Wishers,

Welcome to Verse 38 of the Calendar of the Soul Verses by Rudolf Steiner.
Hope you and your loved ones are well and thriving.
If this is your birthday verse this week Birthday Blessings to you!

Over the coming months 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).

38. Christmas Dec 22-28 Calendar of the Soul

On Saturday, December 22nd, we moved to Verse 38 (Week of December 22nd – 28th).  The verses were originally written in German by Rudolf Steiner, included here are translations into English and French.

38. Thirty-eighth Week after Easter
(December 22nd – 28th)
The spirit child within my soul
I feel freed of enchantment.
In heart-high gladness has
The holy cosmic Word engendered
The heavenly fruit of hope,
Which grows rejoicing into worlds afar
Out of my being’s godly roots.

(Translation: Pusch)

38. Trente huitième semaine: 22-28 décembre
Je ressens comme désensorcelé
L’enfant-esprit là, dans l’écrin de l’âme ;
Voici qu’en la clarté du coeur
Le saint verbe des mondes engendra
Le fruit céleste de l’espoir
Qui croît en jubilant jusqu’au lointain des mondes
Depuis le fondement divin de l’être, en moi.
(Traduction: Paccoud)

38. Woche:  22-28 Dezember
Ich fühle wie entzaubert
Das Geisteskind im Seelenschoss;
Es hat in Herzenshelligkeit
Gezeugt das heilige Weltenwort
Der Hoffnung Himmelsfrucht,
Die jubelnd wächst in Weltenfernen
Aus meines Wesens Gottesgrund.

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 39 (December 29th – January 4th) until then, be well.
Kindest regards,
Sri Devi
