Lifts itself … #Quote 163



Alas, two souls are living in my breast,

And one wants to separate itself from the other.

One holds fast to the world with earthy passion

And clings with twining tendrils:

The other lifts itself with forceful craving

To the very roof of heaven.


Goethe (Faust)

  2. i think sometimes this confusion of duality is also a bliss.


  3. Wow….so simply summarizes that internal struggle within. Just beautiful.


    • Rebecca – thanks for visiting and leaving a note. And yes, it does sometimes feel like a struggle, but I love Nirmal’s comment that it can also be bliss! I try to remind myself that we chose to be here in physical, because it’s such a delicious option…so my only job is to interpret it that way!
