I thought I’d switch it up a bit this week and share one of my favorite quotes with you. Which also happens to be a beautiful affirmation.
The first time I saw this D.H. Lawrence quote was in a calendar I bought in Denver while visiting my sister.
Here is an expansion of the quote:
“We ought to dance with rapture that we should be alive and in the flesh, and part of the living, incarnate cosmos. I am part of the sun as my eye is part of me. That I am part of the earth my feet know perfectly, and my blood is part of the sea. My soul knows that I am part of the human race, my soul is an organic part of the great human soul, as my spirit is part of my nation. In my own very self, I am part of my family. There is nothing of me that is alone and absolute except my mind, and we shall find that the mind has no existence by itself, it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters.”
When I read this I experience a vastness and presence I can only describe as absolute beauty.
Accompanied by a feeling of safety. Serenity. Infinity.
