Moving into the unknown

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

RM Rilke: “Letters to a young poet” 1903/4

He wanted to meet in the real world the unsubstantial image which his soul so constantly beheld. He did not know where to seek it or how, but a premonition which led him on told him that this image would without any overt act of his, encounter him.”

 J Joyce: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916)

How does one live a life based on truth ?

It seems to me there has to be a willingness, an unwavering desire. No matter what this truth looks like, heaven or hell, wanting to “live everything” is the very expression of an undivided soul.

Live the question now – and one day encounter the unsubstantial image which the soul so constantly beheld. The unsubstantial image…..

The exploration of the Orpheus Journey is entering a new stage now. The descent and return has been a powerful guiding image, recognised more intuitively than known by the concepts of the mind. But it beckons to return and go even deeper and explore the true meaning of the mystic-mythological  lives and union of Orpheus and Eurydike, Sri Aurobindo and the Mother and of course Mary Magdalene and Jesus. The ancient tantric teaching of transmutation  that in recent years turned into the overused and  worn out copulation fantasy of New Age seekers, holds so much more than the coming together  of opposites. It is all about the path of the soul to prepare for life after death – resurrection, ascension and regeneration.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
