As a spiritual teacher Rudolf Steiner wrote many beautifully formed and inspired verses. Often they were written and given in relation to specific situations or in response to individual requests; others were created for general use to aid in the process of meditation. Regardless of their origins, they are uniformly powerful in their ability to connect one with spiritual archetypes and realities. Moreover, they have become valuable tools for developing experience and knowledge of other worlds. Matthew Barton has delicately translated these meditations into English, many for the first time, and arranged them thematically in this outstanding new series. – In this popular collection of meditations for times of day and seasons of the year―now available in Paperback―Steiner delves into the rhythms of nature and their relationship to us as human beings. The verses in part 1 relate to the cycle of waking and sleeping while echoing the larger rhythms of birth and death. They provide an accompaniment for our daily lives, gently reminding us where we came from and where we are going. – Part 2 focuses on the human individual's passage through nature's changing seasons―Earth's greater cycle of sleeping and waking. Together, these profound verses and meditations offer us a spiritual light for our journey through life.
