About “Circling Around The Sacred”

I changed the title of my blog after encountering a poem that so very much resonates at a deep level with my past and continuing journey. The Poem is by Rainer Maria Rilke, whose deep and profound poetic ideas I have come to love and appreciate. Indeed the poem below is my favorite and the one to which I connect, and from which this blog is titled.

Widening Circles
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 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?
