Keeping the self fluid

Be ahead of all parting, as if it had already happened,
like winter, which even now is passing.
For beneath the winter is a winter so endless
that to survive it at all is a triumph of the heart.

Be. And know as well the need to not be:
let that ground of all that changes
bring you to completion now.

Rilke, Sonnets to Orpheus II, 13
