To live everything

Few years ago, a friend asked me to consider the words below.
It has taken me a while to finally understand them and myself. 

   „I beg you, 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, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, 
live your way into the answer.”


(Rainer Maria Rilke’s 1903, Letters to a Young Poet)

Things I should know

My photo
Starea ta naturala (perfecţiunea) nu este nici entuziasmul, nici descurajarea. Starea ta naturală este liniştea. * Iubirea musei nu e pasională, e totală. Musa cunoaşte ceva asemănător adoraţiei, dar mai adânc, mai liniştit. Vă scriu din altă lume... * (Gellu Naum: Calea Şearpelui)
