Rilke on God—“Religion is productivity”

AQS in German, one page, 8.75 x 5.5, February 1, 1907. In full (translated): "Basically, there's only one form of existence: Becoming. God, too, is nothing permanent: he wants to be created again and again and ever better. Religion is productivity." Affixed by the top edge to a slightly larger sheet. In very good to fine condition, with a central vertical fold and mild show-through from writing to reverse.
