Being Okay with the Mystery

One of the biggest epiphanies I’ve had in the past few years has been the fact that my questions don’t necessarily need answers. I’ve grown to appreciate the ambiguous, to understand that there isn’t always an answer for my questions, or an explination for something. Last night, a friend of ours presented a quote for discussion, and it exemplified all that I’ve learned in the past few years, and everything I love about this faith in God I enjoy:

“…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…
Live the questions now.  Perhaps then, someday for in the future, you will
gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

— Ranier Maria Rilke – Letters to a Young Poet
