There is a goodness … a Wisdom that arises,

sometimes gracefully, sometimes gently,

sometimes awkwardly, sometimes fiercely,

but it will arise to save us if we let it,

and it arises from within us, like the force that drives green shoots to break the winter ground,

it will arise and drive us into a great blossoming like a pear tree,

into flowering, into fragrance, fruit, and song …

into that part of ourselves that can never be defiled, defeated or destroyed,

but that comes back to life, time and time again,

that lives — always — that does not die.

— China Galland, The Bond Between Women
