I want to unfold. I don’t want to stay folded anymore, because where I am folded, there I am a lie.*
(Rainer Maria Rilke)
We save the world by being alive.**
There are lots of things that can lead to folded lives: suffering, failure, envy, guilt, background are just some.
There has never been a better time, though, to unfold, to live a life that is high and wide and deep and long.
Unfolding is a choice or response to something, a choice we can make today and many times through today. Nothing and no one can take this away from us – something Viktor Frankl helped us to see.
