I came across this in my daily reading and it sparked something in me that I am unable to put into words. Perhaps in sharing, it might spark something in you as well. Take from it what you will…
What must I do, in the time remaining? Only everything.
I don’t yet know how much I know; but it’s a great deal. There are vast tracks of my nature I never knew existed until now. I lived, I suppose, in a cell of my own creation, while outside its walls lay a landscape of unparalleled richness. But I could not bear to venture there.
In my self-delusion I thought I was a minor king, and I didn’t want to step beyond the bounds of what I knew for fear I lost my domain. I daresay most of us live in such pitiful realms. It takes something profound to transform us; to open our eyes to our own glorious diversity.
