Â Goethe’s Soul Â 2:28 (Live audio excerpt from One Earth, One Dream, with words and voices of Marion Woodman and John Sanford)
Out on the street, a young woman is being threatened and yanked around by the arm by a uniformed officer of some kind. Â He shouts at her that she should be taken to a girl’s reform school. Â I tell him triumphantly that she’s not a girl; she’s a woman about to give birth. Â In fact, she’s Goethe’s soul, and she’s about to bring something new into the world.
Then I realize to my amazement that this is actually true! Â I feel so encouraged by this. Â She’s real! Â And apparently she doesn’t belong only to Goethe, or to any one person, time, or place. Â She’s mine, too. Â In fact, she belongs to everyone!
