It is incredible that humans manage to forget the miracle of being here. Rilke said, ‘Being here is so much,’ and it is uncanny how social reality can deaden and numb us so that the mystical wonder of our lives goes totally unnoticed. We are here. We are wildly and dangerously free.

Answer the Door…

You might as well answer the door, my child, the truth is furiously knocking.

Guest House

This being human is a guest house. Every morning a new arrival.

what really matters

Heartbreak and hope are not mutually exclusive.

We can be angry and sad and filled with longing for something we cannot have,

and simultaneously we can be grateful for what we’ve got —

aware, for reasons we’d never choose, of what really matters.

Deeper than reason


What’s magical, sometimes, has deeper roots than reason.
