Melody in Your Bones

On my evening walks along the Hudson River, I’ve been marveling at the mesmerizing crisp sliver of the first new moon in 2017 against the indigo sky. Its strength is growing, bathed in the inspiring rays of the Sun’s journey through the Aquarian lands. When the Sun shines onto Earth through the constellation of Aquarius, something stirs in us. We’re still two months away from Spring in the Northern hemisphere. Yet, fresh drops of invigorating Spirit elixir are spreading through our energy field. The will to create arises in the mind anew....

Warmth of My Heart

Warmth of My Heart

January tends to be a difficult month in the temperate zones of the Northern hemisphere. The décor for the end-of-year festivities is gone. The Earth has withdrawn into itself, preparing for the Spring. The days are getting longer but the Sky is still far away. We look around and it’s dark and cold and dismal. Bewildered, we begin stumbling back to the warm chambers of the heart. Hopefully, we can still find the way in. The negative effects of media, hectic lifestyle, spiritless use of technology are so devastating. And our Soul suffers....

Wisdom of the Heart

Wisdom of the Heart

We have probably all experienced that most New Year resolutions fail fairly quickly. But why? As I see it, there is one crucial reason: wrong timing. The date January 1st is an artificial construct, with no correlation to the movement of the stars, the planets, or the changes of the seasons. Thus setting our goals at the beginning of the year is as good or bad as making a to-do list on any other day. Living in the world ruled by Western civilization, we’re so used to the Gregorian calendar that we no longer question this time measurement...

My Heart Radiates Love

The Mercury finally joined the rest of the planets in their forward motion on January 8, 2017. Even the swift Divine Messenger can be late every so often, especially when running backwards. We have entered 2017 last week, but the memo only arrived today. The old 2016 can now be let go, at last. All the planets are in sync, moving forward through February 5, when Jupiter, the benevolent leader, turns retrograde. We have four weeks of wonderful auspicious time ahead of us. Don’t start rushing though. Yes, go onward with your projects and new...

In the Quiet of My Soul

In the Quiet of My Soul

The transition from the old into the New Year in the Gregorian calendar occurs in the middle of the Holy Nights. From Christmas to Epiphany, or rather, for the first two weeks of Winter, we are invited to slow down, and commune with our Soul. To nurture the inner Light. “The Winter will arouse in me the Summer of the Soul,” ponders Rudolf Steiner. The warmth and the brightness of Summer are now stored inside of us. At the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, we can perceive the warmth and brightness within us in a new...

My Heart Rejoices

Something shifts each year between the Winter Solstice and Christmas Day. A subtle inner glow lightens the burdens. Something pulls the reins to slow down the frantic horses. But we need to tune in… The more I work with the Rudolf Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul and my own Soulful Sparks of Inspiration, the more sensitive I become to superficial packaging of media during the holidays. New York City is ablaze with external decorations. But what do we find inside? More fancy boxes, labeled with big names to house over-priced items. “No poetry at...

Yearning of the Heart

What makes human beings different from animals? We share so much with mammals: warm blood, ability to move around, biological processes. Yet, we’re different. Are we really just the logical next step in the evolution of matter? Observing the world events, one may say that we’re worse than animals. Humans are destroying nature, and killing each other, not for food, but just because the other is of a different creed, color, nationality. Strange species indeed, valuing money over Life. In cities and suburbs, floods of us are moving around like...

Spirit Light Within

Spirit Light Within

Have you noticed how everything seems easier on a sunny day? The air fills the lungs effortlessly, obstacles are less threatening, burdens lighter. Yet, at the same time, the light makes dust visible. And other things that we may not want to see. A bright day often encourages me to wash the windows so that I can enjoy the Sun better. Especially now when days are getting shorter. The sunlight coming in on cold days is crisper. It streams in pure through bare branches. There are no more leaves to obstruct and soften its glow. But then there are...
