My sweet friend and yoga student, Kate, gave me a poem which I have been sharing in class this week.  It relates to our recent exploration of noticing how we tend to rush toward the end result whie missing out on the momen-to-moment experience. 

Following is the poem that several of you have requested.  I am happy to share as it was shared with me.

I beg you…to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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 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
