There is a longing to understand ourselves and our place that I hear in the words of this Rilke poem. It gives us a clue to finding ourselves and our home by centering our search upon the primordial tower.
What sense of larger meaning and trust in the Universe holds you
as you ask these questions over time?
Like a bird, we settle briefly and then take off again for grand flights. Home, belonging, knowing who and whose we are - these are gifts and eternal questions. Transient and transcending, the answers can still be beyond anything we might imagine today. "I still don't know..." is powerful poetry!
May we live our lives in widening circles.
May we give ourselves to life at its fullest,
whether or not we ever complete the circle
may we remember that we belong to it.
