* Live in the Question


“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue.
Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Wilke

Embrace exactly where we are today

Not wishing into an imagined future

or seeking answers we are not ready to live by

Accept the confusion of not knowing

Love and live each moment for what it is

Knowing everything has its time

    • Agreed Karen. Its a wake up call when we realize that, not only don’t we know the answers, but we are are probably not ready for them. Letting things unfold and being with what is takes courage along with bags of patience. xo
