“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.”
— Rainer Maria Rilke
I say I want to feel peace, but I am not willing to be peace

I say I want to feel peace, but I am not willing to be peace

I opened the old pink journal that was sitting on a stack of books next to me on the bookshelf. It was shocking what I found inside: Page after page of me resisting what was really going on in my life, while all the time declaring that I want to feel peaceful.

Insanity. You can't create peace while you're fighting a silent war with yourself. 

I want to finish so I can feel free, but I feel chained to my project. It feels anything but free.

I can't create freedom while I am focusing on how tied down I am feeling.

It's paradoxical—how do I make finishing feel like freedom? 

Through something I call "The Fantastically Freeing Magic of Finishing." 

Stay tuned for more.
