Do you ever feel stuck, like your life is not moving forward, like you are standing still, motionless? I do! Lately it feels like my energy is blocked, that my business is not moving forward or in any direction at all. Instead of seeking answers, maybe I need to live in the questions for now. One of my favorite poets, Rilke addresses this in one of his quotes.
“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
How can I love the questions and not be constantly looking for the answers? What is the question waiting to emerge? How can I live in the question today? I am going to take Rilke’s advice and practice patience and trust that the answers will come when the time is right.
What about you? Do you ever feel stuck in the minutia of your life? If yes, how can you practice acceptance that you are exactly where you need to be in this moment? How can living in the question be helpful to you?
I invite you to explore how journal writing can help you to live in the question. Join me at my September 10 retreat, “The Journey to Self Knowledge through Journal Writing.” Please visit my website for details. http://nancyjambor.com/events/
