Episode #120 — Patience, grasshopper …

I am NOT a patient person by nature. I want answers and want them NOW. And I’m finding that some of those quick answers tend towards the easiest ones … and likely not the best. I’m learning that what would serve me better is a lesson from Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet:

“Have patience with everything that
remains unsolved in your heart …
live in the question.”

— Rainer Maria Rilke

My realization is not merely that I am served by giving more time to the process. What resonates most deeply from Rilke’s quote is the reminder that came from ONE word: heart.

By turning over the unsolved in my head, I careen toward an answer. When I hold the unsolved in my heart, the gift is getting to live in the question.

The answers that surface from my heart are always the richest ones … and the truest.

Where does your truth come from?
