Second Life

I love the dark hours of my being
in which my senses drop into the deep.

I have found in them, as in old letters,
My private life, that is already lived through,
And become wide and powerful now, like legends.

Then I know that there is room in me
For a second huge and timeless life.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
(from The Soul of Money by Lynne Twist pg 141)
