Go into yourself

Nobody can counsel and help you, nobody. There is only one single way. Go into yourself. Search for the reason that bids you to write; find out whether you would have to die if it were denied you to write.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (1903 – 1908)

This reminds me of the saying of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas:

If you bring forth what is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not have that within you, what you do not have within you [will] kill you.
