If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Living the Questions

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.    Rainer Maria Rilke

I continue to wonder about this “book.” nightpages

The one I yearn to write.

The one that urges me to pay attention.

The one that encourages me to take notes on everything.

The one that gives me vivid dreams.

The one that is organizing my writing room.

The one that is teaching me patience and trust.
