Lifts itself … #Quote 163

Sunrays

.

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)

    • 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!
