Lately, I have been reading a text by Albert Einstein in my classes, and he says the words "widening our circle of compassion", which brought me to a poem by Rainer Maria Rilke, that Morgan Harper Nichols mentioned in her Instagram account.
Interesting how things and poems weave themselves.
Here is the poem by Rainer Maria Rilke:
I live my life in widening circles
that reach out across the world.
I may not complete this last one
but I will give myself to it.
I circle around God, around the primordial tower.
I’ve been circling for thousands of years
and I still don’t know: am I a falcon,
a storm, or a great song?
