embrace the questions

i beg you...to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. don't search for the answers, which could not be given you now, because you would not be able to live with them. and the point is, to live everything. live the questions now. perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer. - rainer maria rilke

as i was cleaning my desk today, i came across a notebook with the above quote on the cover. and it spoke to me. so i share with you.

here's to living the questions in 2010 and not stressing about finding the answers...knowing they will eventually come and when they do, we will embrace and live the answers, just as we did the questions.

and now back to post-christmas cleaning.
