AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

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

Trust.


If you trust in Nature, in the small Things that hardly anyone sees and that can so suddenly become huge, immeasurable; if you have this love for what is humble and try very simply, as someone who serves, to win the confidence of what seems poor: then everything will become easier for you, more coherent and somehow more reconciling, not in your conscious mind perhaps, which stays behind, astonished, but in your innermost awareness, awakeness, and knowledge.

Rainer Maria Rilke, from Letters to a Young Poet
