Arvo Part: Spiegel im Spiegel

This You Tube post came our way today. It’s touching and beautiful, so we want to offer it on….

Lovely music, lovely images, lovely words. Solace, replenishment and hope to infuse 9 minutes of your day.

This includes a Schweitzer quote (below), and captures his phrase ‘Ehrfurcht vor dem Leben’ or ‘reverence for life’, which we think sits at the heart of the person-centred approach, therapeutic relationship, and indeed all loving relationship.

‘Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved.’

Søren Kierkegaard

‘The vision that you glorify in your mind, the ideal that you enthrone in your heart – this you will build your life by, and this you will become.’

James Allen

‘I must interpret the life about me as I interpret the life that is my own. My life is full of meaning to me. The life around me must be full of significance to itself. If I am to expect others to respect my life, then I must respect the other life I see, however strange it may be to mine. And not only other human life, but all kinds of life.’

Albert Schweitzer
