Living the Questions

Lately I've been feeling like there is so much to be worked on, changed, healed in order to get to where I want to go in life.  I keep thinking if I can just shift one thing that everything else would fall into place.  The unimportant things would sift themselves out and the really important things would effortlessly align through me focusing and acting on that one thing.  So I keep looking around for the answer.  Really, I keep looking inside, because I know the answers are always within.  There's nothing that we need outside of ourselves to get to where we want to go.  Yet, the answers seem to evade.  Suddenly I thought of this quote by Rainer Maria Wilke,

"...I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to 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."

How difficult do we make our lives by resisting the questions?  How else are we to know what our soul, our heart is telling us unless we dig into that inner space and ask? I'm making it my new mission to ask the questions before looking for the answers.  It's no coincidence that the motto for this year so far has been to "find out."  Let's live the questions, and get excited for what we might find.

measuring a good way

Dad told me to take a self inventory today.  In what ways have I measured up, showed up, given service?  Who have I touched?  What qualities have I developed and expressed?  

What would be on your list?

Expressing the positive of things always brings you more of what you want.  So I'm starting here.
