Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself





I had no idea what to do for this week’s photo challenge. I thought about it for all of 5 minutes before deciding to just let the answer come to me at some point during the week.  A few days later I was monkeying around with Maya with some yoga poses and Katy grabs my phone to take some pics. Nice job Katy! Once again I have been delivered from having to find out the answer myself. What better representation of my self and my life than this manifestation of one of my most treasured life rules. Rilke said:

“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.”

And I believed these words! The more I just let life answer questions for me, the easier things have been. I tend to get in the way..the mind tends to interpret as it sees fit. My answers are usually self-serving and generally harmful. But when Life answers, it’s always in the right. Wait a minute, that’s another Rilke quote:

“Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.”
