Calendar of the soul 33,
November 17-23
  Calendar of the soul 20,
August 18-24
Thus I feel at last the world
That without the communion with my soul
In itself could only find frostily empty life
And revealing itself without power
Creating itself in souls anew,
Could find only death in itself.
  Thus I feel my being
That far from the being of the world
Would have to extinguish itself in itself,
And just building on its own ground in itself,
Would have to put itself to death.
So fühle ich erst die Welt,
Die außer meiner Seele Miterleben
An sich nur frostig leeres Leben
Und ohne Macht sich offenbarend,
In Seelen sich von neuem schaffend,
In sich den Tod nur finden könnte.
  So fühl ich erst mein Sein,
Das fern vom Welten-Dasein
In sich, sich selbst erlöschen
Und bauend nur auf eignem Grunde
In sich, sich selbst ertöten müsste.

In August we felt how our own being, confined to a lonely existence, would have to find death in itself. The soul needs the existence of the world to be able to exist itself. Now, in November, we feel in the opposite way. We feel how the world would not be able to exist, how it would have to die, if the human soul would not communicate with the world. The world has to recreate itself in the human soul; without this power to reveal itself in souls it would find death in itself.
