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 now 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 then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letter to a Young Poet, 1934
That sounds very challenging. But do you really think that not seeking the answers will help them reveal to us? A rather Eastern... zen existential approach, having in mind when he lived, which comes to prove that all knowledge is not only timeless but all-present.ReplyDelete
