The Place Within
"All meaningful and lasting change
starts first in your imagination and
then works its way out."
— Albert Einstein
"To thine own self be true."
— William Shakespeare
"The Kingdom of God is within you."
— Luke 17:21
(Jesus’ response to the query “Where is the Kingdom of God
and when will it come” by the religious leaders of his time.)
"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, Selected Poems, Robert Bly translation
