Rilke on God

June 9, 2008

“When I saw others straining toward God, I did not understand it, for though I may have had him less than they did, there was no one blocking the way between him and me, and I could reach his heart easily. It is up to him, after all, to have us, our part consists of almost solely in letting him grasp us.”

    Wow. . . I love that quote.

    Nice name too, by the way.

    I don’t know too much about Rilke’s faith, but he’s a great poet, and he’s got a great perception of things.
