This is love: to fly toward a secret sky,
to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment.
— Rumi, 13th-century Persian Poet
She is my morning, she is my evening; we have a love that blooms over and again, more beautifully each time than the last. You will see that we are not lovers like others, for whom love is both a punishment and a gift…
Our love has never punished, only rewarded.
Such love therein lies in the eudaimonic life.
― Roman Payne, The Wanderess
The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routines.
― Mike Murdock
Affirmation is difficult. We always affirm with conditions. I affirm the world on condition that it gets to be the way Santa Claus told me it ought to be. But affirming it the way it is — that’s the hard thing, and that is what rituals are about.
― Joseph Campbell
This life's five windows of the soul
Distorts the Heavens from pole to pole
And leads you to believe a lie
When you see with, not thro' the eye
That was born in a night to perish in a night
When the soul slept in beams of light.
― William Blake, The Everlasting Gospel
The journey in search of soul is difficult and even dangerous because it requires that we relinquish the certainty of what we think we know and what we have been taught for generations to believe. It means surrendering the desire to be in control and opening ourselves to a quest, a path of discovery. Many myths and fairy tales emphasize the need for surrender and trust in the strange non-rational guidance offered by animals or shamans on the quest. As the hero follows their guidance, so the hedge opens, the way unfolds. Following the guidance and wisdom of the instinct is the royal road into the realm of soul.
― Anne Baring, The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul
Use the wings of the flying Universe,
Dream with open eyes; See in darkness.
― Dejan Stojanovic
Man strives toward reason only so that he can make rules for himself.
Life itself has no rules. That is its mystery and its unknown law.
― C.G. Jung, The Red Book: A Reader's Edition
The word ‘Feminine’ stands for the Soul
and the unseen cosmic web of life that connects each one of us to all others
and to the life of the planet and the greater life of the cosmos.
― Anne Baring, The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an Image
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.
― Albert Einstein
