live your way to the answer

"I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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 Poe

This quote really speaks to me for where I am at in my life right now. Moving across the country from Colorado to Florida has thrown me for quite a loop and I have this tendency to over think things, live in the past, or live in the future. Living the questions now is something that I am consciously trying to do. I spend so much time trying to find answers and create solutions; I take comfort in the possibility that the answers might come to me gradually as I live and grow.
