And when I am in spirit depths,In the foundations of the soul- Coming from the love-worlds of the heart -The vain peculiarities of the self is filledWith the fire-forces of the World-Word.A more literal version:And when I am in spirit depths,The vain delusion of the peculiarities of the selfIs filled in the foundations of the soul With the fire-forces of the World-Word,Coming from the love-worlds of the heart. Und bin ich in den Geistestiefen,Erfüllt in meinen SeelengründenAus Herzens LiebeweltenDer Eigenheiten leerer WahnSich mit des Weltenwortes Feuerkraft.
We follow the great spiritual events throughout the year, whether we are conscious of them or not. The calendar of the soul brings these events into consciousness. On the6th of January we celebrate Epiphany, the baptizing of Jesus in the river the Jordan, by John the Baptist. It is the beginning of the threeyears of Christ's working on earth. It is a holyIncarnation that happens. We ourselves, as human beings, may follow this Epiphany, it draws itself in our souls, but we don't look at it, because our regard is turned to the outside and never to the inner spiritual life - unless we know how to meditate.
In the holynights I cameinto the spiritual depths and now my soul is filled with the firepower of the Worldword, as a true image of Epiphany. It is an enlightenment that sounds.
