Dear Class of 2013:
It has been my privilege to serve in some small way as your college counselor - and I know that the Senior Mentors, your faculty, the administration, and staff at Notre Dame feel honored to have been a part of your life in some way over the past four years.
You will be hearing many 'wise words' as you near graduation.
This Wednesday, in Mentoring/Collaboration, you will be gifted with a wonderful conversation with Ms. Cynthia Manuel-Shah, MFT, who specializes in "Transitions" === especially from high school to college! She will be dialoguing with all of you as a class --- during one of your last mentoring/collaboration periods, about leaving high school and moving forward.
In this last Monday Memo, I leave for you words for Rainer Maria Rilke, German poet, who wrote:
trust in Nature, in the small Things that hardly anyone sees and that can so suddenly become huge, immeasurable; if you have this love for what is humble and try very simply, as someone who serves, to win the confidence of what seems poor: then everything will become easier for you, more coherent and somehow more reconciling, not in your conscious mind perhaps, which stays behind, astonished, but in your innermost awareness, awakeness, and knowledge
TRUST in the SMALL THINGS THAT HARDLY ANYONE SEES --- IF YOU HAVE LOVE FOR WHAT IS HUMBLE....THEN EVERYTHING WILL BECOME EASIER...MORE COHERENT...MORE RECONCILING FOR YOU....
MAY THE WORLD BE YOUR PEACEFUL HAVEN.
