Have patience

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 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, someday far
in the future, you will
gradually, without even
noticing it, live your way
into the answer.
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Relaxing into the questions is the invitation of Awareness these days.  And while this experience has me sauntering along the shifting sands of the water’s edge for hours on end, I feel more at home in myself, grateful for the journey.  I’m learning to be more tolerant and welcoming of uncertainty.  Happiness –  immeasurable.   Never alone and gently guided in the direction of solitude, breathing in a hallowed time and space, without the familiar urgency that comes from needing answers.   There’s a light, airy freedom to this way of relating to the stories stirring within.  Grace touched my hands – unveiling a Consciousness which is unchanging and without limits.  My heart races…like being in love, even in remembrance of this miracle.   There’s ample room in my heart and mind for contemplating the spiritual mysteries of life unfolding in this soft landing of Love.  Could this be the beginning path of an awakened bodhisattva.
