Small Stone for Jan. 9, 2014

badge-14-300x300For Jan. 9, the entry in A Year with Rilke is called Overflow, and the image is of the overflow from a fountain, how fullness flows into us “when things and thoughts cannot contain it.”

Seeking a way
to contain my own thoughts
so I am not overwhelmed

to be instead mindful
less full of worry
to do things differently

to take each small step.

Rainer Maria Rilke
