“I call the high and light aspects of my being spirit and the dark and heavy aspects soul.

“Soul is at home in the deep, shaded valleys. Heavy torpid flowers
saturated with black grow there. The rivers flow like warm syrup.

“Spirit is a land of high, white peaks and glittering jewel-like lakes and flowers. Life is sparse and sounds travel great distances.”

—The Dalai Lama, as quoted by James Hillman in “A Blue Fire”
