Have you ever read something that so closely matched a thought you were having just moments before that your jaw had no choice but to drop halfway open? I was meditating on the importance of patience and trust last night, and BAM – I stumbled across the passage below first thing this morning.
“My wish is ever strong that you find enough patience within you and enough simplicity to have faith. May you gain more and more trust in what is challenging and confidence in the solitude you bear. Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right in any case.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
Patience and faith. Two humble words that have been repeated by wise men and women throughout the sands of time. In the face of life’s many unknowns, they are your own inner campfire by which to warm your hands and heart.
