Be Patient Poem by Rainer Maria 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.

This is part of the Levnow Poetry for your Soul Series. As a new fan of peotry I am starting to love the lessons woven into the prose. I hope you enjoy these as a little break from the someone but not really heavy self-help posts.
My Takeaway from the poem Be Patient by Rainer Maria Rilke
This poem is a reminder to live in the moment, the questions about tomorrow cannot be answered today, so why bother. Remember the present is all you have, use it to create the future of your dreams.
Sending you light and love,
