I Celebrate Myself…

So I am back on Whitman again. I just had to write this just in case one day a bunch of people discover my blog (I’m holding my breath), and wonder what happened to the Rilke/Whitman triangle (haha). I think these same readers will be more interested in the day I get a life.

I swing back and forth between the two because at different times, each will speak to me in another way, totally different from the other. I get amazed each time I read either one of the authors. I was looking at Songs of Myself, and although I have read it so many times before, I am still surprised at how much it still speaks to me. I decided that in my spare time, I will delve deeper into Songs of Myself; I carry a pocket sized version in my bag. The same feeling of amazement happened with reading Rilke’s First Elegy two nights ago. Maybe I should be a lit professor…

Note: I am in the library at school, I should be studying, but instead, I’m writing a blog.

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~
