The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Rivers to the Sea by Sara Teasdale:|
Go lightly on your pilgrimage
Unburdened by desire.
RIVERS TO THE SEA
Forget me for a month, a year,
But, oh, beloved, think of me
When unexpected beauty burns
Like sudden sunlight on the sea.
Nisida and Prosida are laughing in the light,
Capri is a dewy flower lifting into sight,
