Living the Questions

Give Away

It’s served its purpose.

It’s time to move on.

It’s someone else’s turn.

It wasn’t a good idea in the first place.

It’s toxic: damaging to me, someone else or the environment.

It’s broken beyond repair (wait, is there such a thing?)

It’s weighing me down, holding me back.

Keep

Precious little belongs here.

Insight, however, fleeting and mutable. Whatever supports and serves the ones I love, family, friends and neighbours — come to think of it, isn’t that everyone, potentially? Possessions that make life work better –my padded climbing harness, my collection of Pema Chodron & Sylvia Boorstein audio books, my yoga mat, my black belt.

Up in the air

I can’t say this better than Rilke:

“….have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves …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 Marie Rilke, 1903
