We need, in love, to practice only this:
letting each other go.
For holding on comes easily;
we do not need to learn it.
Source: Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke
This house is going. Eventually all the houses on the bluff will tumble to the sand below. No matter how hard we cling, they will go. Rilke’s right. I don’t need to practice clinging. How do I learn to let go, so that I can be prepared for the final letting go?
