Adventure or escape

Do not 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.*
(Rainer Maria Rilke)

There is no greater adventure than to explore every day what it means to be human, not as someone else, but as who we are.

Adventure is to enter into something, escape, to leave something.

When we follow our questions, boundaries become borders to be crossed.

While some search for the perfect job, others create their own.

(*Rainer Maria Rilke, quoted in the Northumbria Community‘s Morning Prayer.)
