Living in the Questions

In turbulent times, we can easily feel overwhelmed.

Social tensions. Incredible technological advances. The accelerating rate of change.

It often seems as though we have many more questions than answers.

Perhaps that’s the point.

Rainer Rilke

I don’t want to get all existential on y’all but, in times like these, I often return to the words of one of my favorite poets for solace and direction.

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.

Rainer Rilke

Just something I’ve been thinking about that I wanted to share.

What have you been thinking about?
