Steiner, Rudolf: The Calendar of the Soul (english)
Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner (25/27 February 1861 – 30 March 1925) was an Austrian philosopher, social reformer, architect, and scientist. Steiner gained initial recognition as a literary critic and cultural philosopher. At the beginning of the 20th century, he founded a spiritual movement, Anthroposophy, as a science growing out of idealist philosophy.
Steiner advocated a form of ethical individualism, to which he later brought a more explicitly spiritual component. He based his epistemology on Johann Wolfgang Goethe's world view, in which »Thinking … is no more and no less an organ of perception than the eye or ear. Just as the eye perceives colours and the ear sounds, so thinking perceives ideas.« A consistent thread that runs from his earliest philosophical phase through his later spiritual orientation is the goal of demonstrating that there are no essential limits to human knowledge.
This Special Edition ›Die Wochensprüche des anthroposophischen Seelenkalenders im Doppelstrom der Zeit beider Hemisphären‹ contains the english translation of Ruth and Hans Push, a preface from Rudolf Steiner, an essay from Hans Push and the original german version.

What a fascinating upload! I have a friend who works at a Rudolf Steiner school in San Francisco.
Steiner has an interesting quote to the effect that the Gothic arch embodied and announced the rising shape of spirituality in the Western world. I'm not sure I agree, but I love the cresting serial clauses used in the original quote, with their onomatopoeic suggestion of an inert thing awakening.
I was looking for that when I chanced upon this bit:
Rilke is probably behind it all with the Duino Elegies. A friend recently translated part of that cycle while staying at the Duino Castle in Italy, where Rilke wrote the original poems.
Thanks again! Transferring your book to my PRS-350 right after I save this post and close my browser.
The more we acquire, the greater our chance of disappointment. Less is not only more. It is also more fulfilling. "Schmuecke dich, O liebe Seele."
