Reach In

What do you want?

Apparently we all (need to) want something out of life. Sometimes we're at a point where we don't know or have enough to answer this question, and it may sound like,

"What should I want?" or
"Should I want what someone else has?"
"What is safe for me to want?"

That's not it, but you're on your way. Keep going, keep living, keep searching, keep asking.
Soon enough, you will come to the point.
And you will know.

This makes me want to quote Rainer Maria Rilke a second time, in Letters to a Young Poet where she says, “And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far into the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer...”
