Friday's Purposeful Question

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. 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.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Author and teacher Byron Katie says that when you question your stressful thoughts, the freedom that comes out of that graces the world for all of us.

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your questions. So, what questions are you asking?

“Where in my life am I not following my dreams and desires?”

“Why not?”

“What am I willing to do to shift that?”

Life is an unanswered question, but let's still believe in the dignity and importance of that question.” ~ Tennessee Williams
