Of Rilke, and other imponderables

Dear Rainer Maria Rilke, who cropped up first during my University days in relation to a special friend, has the most marvelous quote of which I wish to remind us all, today (Good Friday) –

hearth fires

“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

I hope that this adds meaning in the places and spaces which might at present lack “value” or make any sense – and together we traverse the necessary “imponderables” towards a different tomorrow, perhaps beyond anything we have yet dreamed.

Blessings for a nurturing time this Easter,  and plenty of soul warmth.
