And above all
watch with glittering eyes
the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets
are always hidden in
the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe
will never find it.
there is nothing so bold as expressing oneself…
inquiry for today~ lean into shadows and walls and places you thought you couldn’t go…..
The condition of being good is that it should always be possible for you to be morally destroyed by something you couldn’t prevent. To be a good human being is to have a kind of openness to the world, an ability to trust uncertain things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances for which you were not to blame.
That says something very important about the human condition of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it’s based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather fragile, but whose very particular beauty is inseparable from its fragility.
