Be Patient…

 the-pathway-ian-david-soar

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves.
Do not seek the answers,
Which cannot be given
Because you would not be able
To live them.
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

  1. Rilke is brilliant

  2. Beautiful words of Wisdom…. yes, there are many shifts and changes, and often when we least expect them… as the music of Life continues!

  3. Thanks! I needed that!

  4. Bless you for this today, Philip, so needed.

  5. Wonderful! And I love this picture of trees, so big I felt I could walk right in! (No substitute for really walking right in, but…)

  6. That is very beautiful, peaceful and magical!

  7. Where are those trees, and what kind are they? They feel like the trees that inspired Tolkein.

  8. Love the trees, love the poem.

  9. These are the perfect words for where I am today – thank you, Philip.
