AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Live.

Rilke reminds us in Letters to a Young Poet ... 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
