The Depths of the soul have to stay awake

In spring and summer we lost the self to the shining light of the world; we gave it away to let grow without our doing something to it. Now we have got it back and it becomes more lightfilled every week. The greater the outward darkness, the stronger the inward light is. It will find its highlight with Christmas. Looking outward we can feel a kind of sadness because of the shortening of the days and the coming of autumn. But this is nothing compared to the joy of enlightening space and time with the growing inner light. The summer will be inward, when outward it will be winter.

I can belong now to myself
And shining expand my inner light
Into the darkness of space and time.
Going to sleep is what natural being desires;
Depths of the soul have to stay awake
And being awake bear sun fervours
Into cold winter tides.
Ich darf nun mir gehören
Und leuchtend breiten Innenlicht
In Raumes- und in Zeitenfinsternis.
Zum Schlafe drängt natürlich Wesen;
Der Seele Tiefen sollen wachen
Und wachend tragen Sonnengluten
In kalte Winterfluten.
