Week 43 January 26 – February 1 Calendar of the Soul by Rudolf Steiner in English, French, German

Namaste dear Well Wishers,

Welcome to Verse 43 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).

43. Jan 26 - Feb 1 Calendar of the Soul

On Saturday, January 26th 2013, we moved to Verse 43 (Week of January 26th – February 1st).  The verses were originally written in German by Rudolf Steiner, included here are translations into English and French.

43. Forty-third Week after Easter
(January 26th – February 1st)
In winter’s depths is kindled
True spirit life with glowing warmth;
It gives to world appearance,
Through forces of the heart, the power to be.
Grown strong, the human soul defies
With inner fire the coldness of the world.
(Translation: Pusch)

43. Quarante troisième semaine:  26 janvier – 1 février
Au profond de l’hiver
De l’esprit l’être vrai s’échauffe
Et donne à l’apparence de ce monde
Par les forces du coeur, le pouvoir d’exister ;
Bravant le froid du monde, s’affermit
Le feu de l’âme, à l’intérieur de l’homme.
(Traduction: Paccoud)

43. Woche:  26 Januar – 1 Februar
In winterlichen Tiefen
Erwarmt des Geistes wahres Sein;
Es gibt dem Weltenscheine
Durch Herzenskräfte Daseinsmächte;
Der Weltenkälte trotzt erstarkend
Das Seelenfeuer im Menscheninnern.

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 44 (February 2nd – 8th) until then, be well.
Kindest regards,
Sri Devi
