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 Waiting in the Struggle, and today’s reading comes again from The Eighth Letter.
[Our griefs] are the moments when something new has entered into us, something unfamiliar. Our feelings become mute in timid shyness. Everything within us steps back; a silence ensues, and the something new, known to no one, stands in the center and is silent.
