the confines of the unknown

It astonishes us far too little.

~Sigmund Freud

for all of our wild and compelling instincts…..

inquiry for today~ how do you know your own survival instinct?

fundamental truth

To love and to witness love

in the face of possible loss

and to find the mystery of love’s

promise in the shadow of that loss,

in the shadow of the ordinary

and in the shadow of our own inevitable

disappearance may be where the eternal

source of all our origins stands

in awe of the full consequences

of everything it has set in motion.

~David Whyte
