“…it comes from this edge identity, this frontier conversation that I talk about, but it’s in many of our great traditions. The understanding is that there is a conversational nature to reality, I suppose. So in other words, whatever you want to happen, will not happen. But equally, whatever the world wants to happen for you will not happen either. And what happens is this meeting. And it’s in that meeting that you overhear yourself being surprised by your reality, by the larger context that you haven’t yet explored. So you’re trying to overhear your self whom you didn’t know you knew.” David Whyte

A long and beautiful interview with poet David Whyte on how to live at the frontier of the inner and the outer. Today, find a favourite spot for some contemplative reading. We think it will be worth the time and effort.
