"I would like to beg you, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to 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 to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answers."
~ as quoted by U Jotika, in 'Snow in the Summer' ~I needed that wisdom . . . Rilke helped put a halt to my need to figure things out.
And now, a collage, fresh from the unconscious, with more questions:
Earlier, I went for a walk with the dog. Walking, I repeated to myself, "May I be at peace, may I be at ease, may I be happy . . . "
May all beings be at peace, may all beings be at ease, may all beings be happy. It is September 11th after all.
