Live the Questions Now

I'm recently learning more and more that my connection to nature is vast and very deep.  My personal experience is teaching me that in those moments when I am surrounded by nature and open to all that it offers, the questions arise more simply, without effort or seeking.  I feel it is the stillness outside of us that speaks to the stillness within us that allows for the deeper inquiry.  I like how Rainer says "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."  It's interesting how this concept shifts the perceptive from the future to living in the present, right here, right now.  This passage was beautifully written and very poetic.
