Live Into the Answer

JUNE 25, 2013

It is indeed a daily practice to be present, live in the moment, and be here now. I often find myself torn between living in the now, listening to my heart, trying to decode it's enigmatic language so I may know, when faced with life's daily choices, what course to choose. In an effort to get clear on what I want the outcome to be, or how I want my life to look, I stress trying to figure out what the answer will be before giving life a chance to live it out through me.

After talking to my beautiful heart sister Christi-An from Kula Yoga in Toronto, I was reminded it's not so much about having clarity all the time, but giving yourself space to live in the mystery of it all.

Be patient toward all is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, liked locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not seek now the answers, which cannot be given 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"

- Rilke
