In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our series on Wisdom from Rilke using selections from Letters to a Young Poet by the Austrian writer Rainer Maria Rilke. This week’s theme is Inner Wisdom, and today’s reading comes again from The Fourth Letter.
If you will love what seems to be insignificant and will in an unassuming manner, as a servant, seek to win the confidence of what seems poor, then everything will become easier, more harmonious, and somehow more conciliatory, not for your intellect — that will most likely remain behind, astonished — but for your innermost consciousness, your awakeness, and your inner knowing.
