I read this short essay over and over and over again and seek to live it out every day.
Finding New Questions
We have ceased trying
to tie up all loose ends.
We have discovered
that life does not need to be neat.
We have more questions than answers,
and this is a great delight to us.
We trust the Mystery of life
without having to possess It.
We cherish the feeling of awe
that has grown within our soul.
Some see answers as strong
and questions as weak.
Successful politicians have all the answers.
But I tell you the truth:
The happy person is not the one
with all the answers.
Each new question is an affirmation
of the delight of the living.
What new question have you discovered today?(William Martin, The Sage's Tao Te Ching: A New Interpretation)
