The Old Year

Others see only the old year shadowed, wrinkled and harrowed, sad fearful moods; we though see shining friendship and trusting; see the new thrusting find us renewed!

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is considered the most important writer in the German language, and one of the most important thinkers in our Western Culture. His massive library of esoteric thought influenced 19th century German philosophy. His work also had an impact on thinkers like Hegel and Schelling.

What do we see when we look into our soul? Eyes of fear shine a light on the darkness that exists within the shadows of consciousness. Reflections of trust create sturdy beams that support the character of our essence. We sense a new thrusting within us. We rebound from the goal post of one reality and pass the ball of time to another fabricated value system. Within that system, we find the brilliance of our wrinkled and harrowed creations.
