on getting and being got
it doesn't happen to me very often. that elusive magic that forms between two people. That bone deep recognition that fills our desire as human beings to be understood. To discover that place where communication occurs on a visceral level. To be got. Is it a romantic notion...this idea of "getting " somebody?
Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
