31. Visions

It is all a command to recognise unseen greatness, to take every least experience we can, and crush from it all its savour; not to be afraid of the great emotions of the world, love and sorrow and loss; but only to be afraid of what is petty and sordid and mean.

        — Visions, Joyous Gard

 

It’s a wonderful prescription for the new year, isn’t it? — “¦.to take every least experience we can, and crush from it all its savour;”

 

What we should fear aren’t the great emotions of love and sorrow, but rather those that are so routinely a part of our perspective, those of pettiness and smallness.

 

Day 31 Guide

 

On this eve of a new year consider that you are part of something terribly significant and that it’s your privilege to join the celebration of the great animating forces. Enrich your voice to include words that speak of things wonderful and beautiful.

 

Happy New Year!
