Three Gifts from God’s Word




Rainer Maria Rilke

I beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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 ever knowing it, live your way into the answers.

52. Learn patience.
53. Love the questions.
54. Live the mystery.

One thought on “Three Gifts from God’s Word

  1. I do understand these three gifts. Sometimes you are not ready to hear the answers, or even to ask the questions and you must wait for the right time to unlock the door and ask again. Love this. xx
