A quote from the BEAR...

I have a new friend who has joined us on the path. He has this quote over on his blog, you can read about it HERE. If when we were young, and were given this piece of advice, maybe alot of heartache and pain could have been avoided. But then again, would we have accepted it graciously and know what to do with it. This is a gem of advice... like Bear says, read it with great care...

...I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to 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, 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 even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke, 1903in Letters to a Young Poet
