Themes that keep emerging

Themes that keep emerging

There are themes in life that keep emerging. They seem not to get solved. You learn to cope with them, yet they don't disappear.

We forget that it is the same themes indeed, but we work on them on a deeper level than before. We forget to see what HAS changed already.

And we then keep pulling and pushing it with even more willpower. And it does not seem to move.

Where do you recognize that in your life?

Here is a poem that has a beautiful answer to that. It is created on words that were found in letters Rilke wrote to a friend.

Live the questions

 Let your judgments have their own quiet,

undisturbed development, which must, like all progress,

come from deep within,

and cannot in any way be pressed or hurried.

It means everything to carry for the full time

and then to bring forth.

To allow every impression and every germ

of a feeling to grow to completion.

To ripen like the tree which does not force its sap

and stands confident in the storms of Spring

without fear lest no Summer might come after.

It does come.

But it comes only to the patient ones,

who are there as if eternity lay in front of them,

so unconcernedly still and far.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart

and try to love the questions themselves,

like locked rooms and like books that are now

written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not now seek the answers,

which cannot be given you 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.
