the middle of difficult

 

“Right in the difficult we must have our joys, our happiness, our dreams: there against the depth of this background,
they stand out,
there for the first time we see how beautiful they are.”

~Rainer Maria Rilke

 

The road I have begun

My eyes already touch the sunny hill,
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has its inner light, even from a distance–
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on,
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

 

Quote- Rainer Maria Rilke, A Walk

To begin

“If the angel deigns to come,
it will be because you have convinced her
not by tears, but by your humble resolve
to be always beginning; to be a beginner.”
[Rainer Maria Rilke]

Like a river

River

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back.”
(Rainer Maria Rilke)
