I call the high and light 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 ocean’s of soul. Spirit is a land of high, white peaks, and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers…People need to climb the mountain, not because it is there, but because the soulful divinity needs to be mated with the Spirit. Deep down we must have…a clear recognition of our shared human status…we must openly accept all ideologies and systems as a means of solving humanity’s problems.The flame of truth cannot be extinguished
