Here’s some Rilke to get your inner hippie on board for the week. (My new thing is trying to trust the universe, so of course I liked this):
We have no reason to mistrust our world, for it is not against us. Has it terrors, they are our terrors; has it abysses, those abysses belong to us; if there are dangers at hand, we must try to love them.
How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples–the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses. Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are waiting for us, beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.
