A Message from the Universe


 Have patience with everything that remains unsolved
in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms
and like books written in a foreign language.
Do not now look for the answers.
They cannot now be given to you
because you could not live them.
It is a question of experiencing everything.
At present you need to live the question.
Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it,
find yourself experiencing the answer,
some distant day.

–Rainer Marie Rilke

Thank you Lynn Hayes for passing on the message.

It's an interesting concept, that of asking the question, living with it a while before getting the answer. At least that is the way I interpreted it.
