Orpheus tries to save Eurydice……. :
Will Orpheus’ music enchant the Lord of the Dead, Hades?
Well, eventually, Hades is so stricken by the beautiful music Orpheus is playing, that he decides to give Orpheus a chance to save his wife, Eurydice, from the Underworld.
….. On one condition.
Orpheus must walk out of Hades (the Underworld), and trust that Eurydice is following behind him, but, if he falters in this trust, and he looks back at her to check, .. Eurydice, will sink back into the Underworld.
AND, that is exactly what happened.

    In the misery of Death…the promise of the eternal returning. Mysery of Heaven, like the mirror of the Underworld. Precious light of the ephemeral and of the heavy pain. If you read Thomas Moore you will find how much theser stories are related to our own soul and realization.
    Hugs to you.

  • I will check Thomas Moore’s writings. Thank you so much !!!! xx

    You have to admire that Hades bloke for his understanding of human frailty. Death suffers from a bad rep, IMO.
