Patience...

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
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 answers.

Rainer Maria Rilke
Letter to a Young Poet

Yes! That's what I have been wondering too... what does living the questions look like?

Sigh. This is what I needed to hear this week. But yet it frustrates me too. The tension between the "now" and the "not yet" is sometimes too much to bear.

Miss you friend!

What a good quote, Jaime. I'm learning that we have to choose daily to live the questions.

Ah! so lovely, so gentle. I want to wrap myself in something warm and take a long nap. :)
