AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Abundance.

Obata, Redwood Tree Spire, Alma, 1925


What birds plunge through is not the intimate space
in which you see all forms intensified.
(Out in the Open, you would be denied
your self, would disappear into that vastness.0


Space reaches from us and construes the world:
to know a tree, in its true element,
throw inner space around it, from that pure
abundance in you. Surround it with restraint.
It has no limits. Not till it is held
in your renouncing is it truly there.

Rainer Maria Rilke
