|This has been the summer of questions. I am beginning to see that with every new insight gained, another rabbit hole opens. What will I experience if I choose this one over that one? Will a door close behind me, a tentative exploration now becoming an inescapable tunnel? Or do the doors indeed swing on more forgiving hinges “moved by the breath of this biological machine?” (to quote a dear friend)
and here’s another quote that gives me peace.
“…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, Letters to a Young Poet, 1903
