Perhaps

Tiger“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

    Thought provoking. Perhaps all the toads are really princes who just need a kiss to transform them. Or perhaps the dragons ARE dragons and the toads ARE toads and we should be extra cautious around them.

      For me, it’s that thing about being truly centered in yourself so that the fire-breathers and the warty can do no harm. But that’s just the first step.

    I love this quote. I first read Rilke when I read Letters To A Young Poet. I read it in a hotel room in Florida by myself. I was really depressed at the time, and when I read it I sobbed harder than I’ve ever cried before. It remains–strangely, given that it wasn’t exactly a joyous situation–one of the more beautiful, connected experiences of my life. Aaaaaanyhoooo, I love reading your blog even though I don’t comment much. xo
