Calendar of the Soul Ninth Week [May 22, 2016 – May 28, 2016]
When I forget the narrow will of self,
The cosmic warmth that heralds summer’s glory
Fills all my soul and spirit;
To lose myself in light
Is the command of spirit vision
And intuition tells me strongly:
O lose yourself to find yourself.
