Unsolved Matters

“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart…live in the question – Rainer Maria Rilke

Everyone has unsolved matters in his heart. Such matters ebb and flow with the passage of time and their resolution cannot be forced arbitrarily. 

How these matters are handled largely determines ones effectiveness in living. Actively abiding in peace when the coefficient of unsolved matters increases keeps the door to wisdom open. On the other hand, choosing to become frustrated, fearful, angry, or shut down when the heart swells with unsolved matters prevents wisdom from entering the heart. 

Wisdom is available to everyone at all times. It cannot be gotten – it must be received. Only an untroubled can receive wisdom. 

One thought on “Unsolved Matters

  1. In light of your words and in my further reading and consideration of the book, “The Fear Cure,” it talks about shifting our perspective of thinking that “uncertainty is unsafe,” to “uncertainty is a gateway to possibility.” I have taken note of the following also: “I am not afraid of the unknown and I’m not seduced by it either. I practice discernment I sense there is an organizing principle I may never fully understand but I have faith that leaning in this direction is safe.” And when we are fearing the unknown,”remind yourself that there are unseen forces guiding you in ways you may not understand until you look back.” These words are settling which I find puts my heart to rest allowing for wisdom to be known in sequence of my moments.
