On Saturday, January 19th 2013, we move to Verse 42 (Week of January 19th – 25th).  The verses were originally written in German by Rudolf Steiner, included here are translations into English and French.

42. Forty-second Week after Easter
(January 19th – 25th)
In this the shrouding gloom of winter
The soul feels ardently impelled
To manifest its innate strength,
To guide itself to realms of darkness,
Anticipating thus
Through warmth of heart the sense-world’s revelation.
(Translation: Pusch)

42. Quarante deuxième semaine:  19-25 janvier
En cette obscurité d’hiver
Manifester sa propre force
Tel est de l’âme le désir ardent,
La diriger vers les ténèbres
Et parvenir, par la chaleur du coeur,
A pressentir la manifestation sensible.
(Traduction: Paccoud)

42. Woche:  19-25 Januar
Es ist in diesem Winterdunkel
Die Offfenbarung eigner Kraft
Der Seele starker Trieb,
In Finsternisse sie zu lenken
Und ahnend vorzufühlen
Durch Herzenswärme Sinnesoffenbarung.

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 43 (January 26th – February 1st) until then, be well.
Kindest regards,
Sri Devi
