Navigating an ambiguous world...

"The human spirit glows from that small 
inner light of doubt whether we are right, 
while those who believe with certainty 
that they possess the right are dark inside
 and darken the world outside
 with cruelty, pain, and injustice."

- Saul D. Alinsky, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals

A glowing spark

I am filled with the seed

Of thy noble spirit,

A glowing spark

That is embedded

Deep in matter;

For thou hast set

The soul in the world,

And hast, O my ruler,

Through this soul,

Set my spirit in my body.

Kindle therefore, O my Lord,

Lights that will lead me on high,

Let the brightness shine forth

And blaze as a fire.

Magnify the tiny spark

Within the crown

Of my head.

Synesius of Cyrene (c.370-c.413)

The Springtime of Dion Fortune

There she is staring out at you...or maybe that should be "in to you"! Whether writing as Violet Firth, Violet M Steele...
