“My dear, in the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized, through it all, …
O light! This is the cry of all the characters of ancient drama brought face to face with their fate. This last resort was ours, too, and I knew it now.
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger — something better, pushing right back.”
~ Albert Camus, Nobel-Prize in Literature, writer and philosopher, from Retour à Tipasa (1952)
Very Solsticey Winter-magic (though there the whole year through) … the bright “invincible Summer” of the Divine Spark, the awakened Heart, within us.
May the Spirit of Now stir alive the Invincible Summer within each one of us, as powerful, healing, life-affirming alchemy from our bit of the world.
