Twenty-fourth week (15-21 September)

from Rudolf Steiner’s ” Calendar of the Soul”

” Itself-creating still

soul-substance goes on to be self-aware;

refreshed in new self-knowledge lives

on the World-spirit, onward strives

forging from those dark places of the soul

her felt identity, the fruit of Will. “

In his Preface to the second edition (1918) of the Seelenkalender Rudolf Steiner observed:

“In this Calendar the verse given for each week is intended to help the soul into an experience of that week as part of the life of the whole year. The Calendar is designed to express all that echoes in the soul when it unites itself with that life. It aims at creating a healthy feeling of at-one-ness with the goings-on of nature, and consequently a strong self-discovery…

Writing a ” report ” every week  to give you an idea of what we do here is a tricky one, we don’t want to bore you with every detail. However as it is probably very different to what you get up to each day we hope that you find it interesting.We want to show you about the work that goes into producing the food that you eat. So on that note, we are putting our efforts into getting as much done to look after this seasons’s crops and to give plants that will produce for next year a jolly good start. This usually means preparing new beds with compost and manure, turning compost and adding BD preparations. The animals are all still outside , and on fine form, but we need to prepare for winter which means space for indoor housing needs arranging. The weather rules our lives to some extent, and we are always trying to keep ahead of diffucult times, to help our work load and to maintain the well being of our plants and animals.
