Now the time comes of increasing activity of the soul. In spring and summer we had to give ourselves to the world, now the world gives itself to us - but we will have to become increasingly active. We cannot wait for the powers of the world to bring us the awareness of the self. We have to create this ourselves by being active without longing for inner rest. Only then the worldspirit touches the human spirit and brings light into the soul that would stay dark if it would want to stay passive.
Creating itself on and on The being of the soul becomes aware of itself; The Worldspirit strives on In selfknowledge re-vitalized And creates from darkness of the soul The willpower-fruit of self- perception.
Sich selbst erschaffend stets, Wird Seelensein sich selbst gewahr; Der Weltengeist, er strebet fort In Selbsterkenntnis neu belebt Und schafft aus Seelenfinsternis Des Selbstsinns Willensfrucht.
This verses were given by Rudolf Steiner in 1912 / 1913: Anthroposophischer Seelenkalender.
