In the pines / by Lucia Fernandez

But only someone who is ready for everything, who doesn’t exclude any experience, even the most incomprehensible, will live the relationship with another person as something alive and will himself sound the depths of his own being.
— Letters to a Young Poet, Rainer Rilke

Overcoming is washing over me...and I believe that it has something in particular to teach. 

Nothing is as expected, and but nothing ever has been.

Whatever comes to unfold, is bound to have some mysterious significance only to be found in the absolute quiet of my mind, as I walk slowly through the pines.

And I will learn again, and again...that there is nothing but unknown that lies ahead. 

Finally I understand, that it is only in the next step that anything means everything.
