Spirit and Soul

“I call the light and high aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.Soul is at home in the deep,shaded valleys.Heavy torpid flowers saturated with black grow there.The rivers flow like warm syrup.They empty into huge oceans of soul.Spirit is a land of high white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers.Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances. There is soul music,soul food, and soul love… People need to climb the mountain not simple because it is there But because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the spirit.”-Dalai Lama

Music in Life

“Orpheus with his lute made trees,And the mountain tops that freeze,Bow themselves,when he did sing;To his music,plants and flowers Ever sprung;as sun and showers. There had made a lasting spring. Every thing that heard him play, Even the billows of the sea,Hung their heads,and then lay by.In sweet music is such art,Killing care and grief of heart Fall asleep,or hearing,die.”-William Shakespeare
