Anything that does not bring you alive is too small for you

You must learn one thing. You must learn one thing.

The world was made to be free in.

You must learn one thing.

The world was made to be free in.

Give up all the other worlds

except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet

confinement of your aloneness

to learn

anything or anyone

that does not bring you alive

is too small for you.

—Excerpt from "Sweet Darkness," David Whyte
