Ganesha, remover of obstacles

The universe is so generous 
if we are open to receive
it provides just what we need 
at the moment we need it

I opened a new book today 
and found this poem
it was absolutely one-hundred percent exactly
what i needed to guide me through this day
so much gratitude

You see, I want a lot.
Perhaps I want everything
the darkness that comes with every infinite fall
and the shivering blaze of every step up.

So many live on and want nothing
and are raised to the rank of prince
by the slippery ease of their light judgments.

But what you love to see are faces
that do work and feel thirst.
You love most of all those who need you
as they need a crowbar or a hoe.
You have not grown old, and it is not too late
to dive into your increasing depths
where life calmly gives out its own secret.

~Rainer Maria Rilke
