Unanswered Questions

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.

 Rainer Maria Rilke

Letters to a Young Poet

We have this tendency to to want to know it all right now! And sometimes we are so focused on knowing the answers that we don’t trust in the process, that we are doing the right things and ultimately, the truth will be revealed.
