Greta R. Strong, Ed.D., MPA., MSc., HS-BCP, Vitiligo Bond’s Vice President and founding member. Without her Vitiligo Bond would not be in existence….
And a man said, Speak to us of self-knowledge.
And he answered, saying:
Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart’s knowledge.
You would know in words
that which you have always known in thought.
You would touch with your fingers
The naked body of your dreams.
And it is well you should.
The hidden well-spring of your soul
must need rise and run murmuring to the sea;
And the treasure of your infinite depths
Would be revealed to your eyes.
But let there be no scales to weigh your unknown treasure;
And seek not the depths of your knowledge with staff or sounding line.
For self is a sea, boundless and measureless.
Say not, “I have found the truth,”
but rather, “I have found a truth.”
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul.”
Say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path…”
