Rilke for the day.

“Yet no matter how deeply I go down into myself
my God is dark, and like a webbing made
of a hundred roots, that drink in silence.”

–Rainer Maria Rilke

I was told that this quote sounds a bit depressing…but then the word “dark” can mean a lot of things.  Who knows what Rilke meant, but I took dark to mean something more along the lines of mysterious or secret, as Isaiah:

“I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places.”
