beautiful words

I’ve been reading a lot lately and the other day I rediscovered these beautiful words by rainer maria rilke.

“You mustn’t be frightened…if a sadness rises in front of you, larger than any you have ever seen; if an anxiety, like light and cloud-shadows, moves over your hands and over everything you do. You must realize that something is happening to you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall…
bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better. In you so much is happening now; you must be patient like someone who is sick, and confident like someone who is recovering; for perhaps you are both. And more: you are also the doctor, who has to watch over himself. But in every sickness there are many days when the doctor can do nothing but wait. And that is what you, insofar as you are your own doctor, must now do, more than anything else.”

and this morning i found these words in my horoscope:

“…all of creation loves you very much. Even now, people you know and people you don’t know are collaborating to make sure you have all you need to make your next smart move.”

true or not it’s nice.
