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.
