Loved my reading in Mark Nepo’s The Book of Awakening today. He opens with this quote:
Yours is to live it, not to reveal it.
His commentary that follows really resonated, especially this:
I’ve come to understand her last instruction as an invitation to shed any grand purpose, no matter how devoted we may be to what we are doing. She wasn’t telling me to stop writing, but to stop striving to be important. She was inviting me to stop recording the poetry of life and to enter the poetry of life.
