Daily Lectio Divina: We must accept our existence

Episode 418

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 from The Eighth Letter.

We must accept our existence to the greatest extent possible; everything, the unprecedented also, needs to be accepted.  That is basically the only case of courage required of us: to be courageous in the face of the strangest, the most whimsical and unexplainable thing that we could encounter.
