Cycle through the Seasons
The cycle of the year has a life of its own and this life can be accompanied by the human soul. By participating and allowing what changes week by week in the course of the year to work upon us, we will truly be able to find ourselves. The soul will then feel how forces within her are being inwardly strengthened. She will discover that such forces can be awakened by participating in the course of the year as it unfolds over time. The delicate yet vitally important threads that connect us with the world into which we have been born then become visible.
— Rudolf Steiner, Soul Calendar, 1918
