There is one constant in life, and that is that things change. Sometimes we have to accept changes that happen, like serious illness in people that we know. Other times we deliberately initiate changes ourselves. However there are times when a change happens that we knew was needed, but did not have the awareness to bring it about ourselves. There is a wisdom deep down in our inner selves which conspires to bring about that which it knows is right for us.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp; it has its inner light, even from a distance—
and changes us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it, we already are;
a gesture waves us on, answering our own wave . . .
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.
Rainer Maria Rilke
