The Soul seeks the Holy Isis
by Gerhard Reisch, image 34
A Path of Knowledge in Pictures



Only one who dares greatly,
can gain greatly.
Only one who courageously
bears the great shocks
which the ascent to the
frontier mountains of the world
brings to the soul,
is worthy to behold
the realm of the gods.

Only one who strides on fearlessly,
when the soul quakes
down to its deepest roots,
when the earthly human being
is brought to nothingness,
only to that one is the power rightly given,
to behold the light of the spirit.
