things that keep me going….#1


We are encouraged, in our ‘locals’ community, to not be afraid of questions. But before I had real people doing the encouraging, I had this quote that I hung onto for dear life. I hope it can be the knot at the end of someone else’s rope…….
‘be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. 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 now. perhaps you will find then gradually, without noticing it, you have lived along some distant day into the answer.’
rm rilke in letters to a young poet.

    Heidi – thankyou so much for the beautiful “words to cling to”. You will be a wonderful gift in whatever community you land in, but remember there is always a place at the table for you here!
