Inner peace

It’s so hard to find.

In fact, for most people, they’ve long since given up expecting anything other than suffering in a disconnected world.

That’s not to say there aren’t a plethora of people proselytising their wares, all premised on provding the Master Key but if it was that easy the world would (presumably) be transformed.

Nope, don’t worry I’m not going to try and differentiate myself from the great and the good but I will invite in a humble and considered way these few lines from Rilke:

“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.”

Right there: are you living in the question even if it’s the hardest one you’ve ever had to face in your life?

You might get stuck — we all do — and come up with nothing more unremarkable than “don’t know” but that, trust me, is a whole heap better than forever running after the next elixir for inner peace and happiness.

Blessings.
