Living the Question

living the question

I’ve spent my life looking for answers; burning curiosity about what makes things work the way they do, why the world is the way it is, what makes people tick. I thought if I asked enough questions and listened to enough folks’ life stories all that info would somehow eventually coalesce into one grand, unified theory of life that made sense of everything.

Well, no regrets, but it never happened. I still ask questions constantly but I’m also much more comfortable “Living the Question” which to me means living life much more in the moment, allowing the answers to unfold before me, becoming more comfortable with uncertainty and the realization that much of the “control” we think we exercise is illusionary.

Closing Quotes:

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.” – Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875-1926

“Peace of Mind is My Only Goal; Love is Letting Go of Fear, Forgiveness offers me all that I would want.” – A Course in Miracles

As always, I share what I most want and need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
