In this week of summer there comes a turning point in the inner experience. Up till this moment we had to surrender the soul completely to the perception with the senses and by doing so we lost the driving force of our own being. The thinking became dreamlike, had lost its clearness and worked benumbing. Through this I forgot my self and seemed to lose it. The turning point now is that we feel how something comes nearer to us that awakens us. We live in the glory of the senses, but in this the World-thinking approaches us to awaken us.
Surrendered to the epiphany of the senses I lost the driving force of my own being, Dream of thought seemed Benumbing to rob the self from me. But awakening me approaches me yet In the gloss of the senses the World-thinking.
An Sinnesoffenbarung hingegeben Verlor ich Eigenwesens Trieb, Gedankentraum, er schien Betäubend mir das Selbst zu rauben, Doch weckend nahet schon Im Sinnenschein mir Weltendenken.
