Why do we have questions?
Is it because of our need for answers?
Then, I ask, why do we want answers?
Can we just live with the questions? Is asking questions a way of interrogating reality? Is there another way?
Why do we have questions? Why do we question? What is a question? Does it help us make sense of Reality? Is questioning seeking balance /elegance in your life? If it is … is it the FINAL or pinnacle of finding this elusive “balance & elegance “ in one’s life?
It seems like WE ARE unable or unwilling to live with questions.
Why, I wonder?
Not knowing makes you vulnerable.
Is that such a bad thing, being vulnerable?
It seems being or allowing oneself to be vulnerable is a difficult thing for people to do. Questions and living with unanswered questions does just this: leaves the questioner vulnerable, weak. Is this such a bad thing?
Maybe, it could argued that questions open up gaping holes in our personality, our theology or our lifestyle. Questions, for many, force an honesty that they are unwilling to face – an honesty that requires them to live with themselves… with their lives, unresolved.
I think most humans do not like living with that unanswerable questions in their heads. And why? Well, questions so strange things to people and one of the hardest things for people to embrace is the uncertainty surrounding unanswered questions.
Destruction before tender, loving care.
It is through the process questioning that will liberate us all. In the process, we are effectively disassembling ourselves from within . This disassembling will give us answers …. that will give us all the grandest Expansion.
And If it doesn’t, don’t “ throw in the towel “, stick with it!
Destruction before tender, loving care. Just like it is essential for creating new muscles and keeping existing muscles: apply forces and destroy muscles and then give it the best nutrition and rest. Then, you repeat it all over again… and again … and
Just like questioning.
You could choose to go into the darkness and explore it or …. stay with the light.
It is through disassembling that we move flexible boundaries (sometimes break) so that … we can include inside these boundaries all that WE ARE.
And REVALUE it.
And just like the creation of muscle … become …
We may not know all the answers. That’s ok, God is always there.
In the book of Job in the Bible, I roughly counted 288 question marks, many of which came from the mouth of Job. Other questions came from his counsellors who are like side-show con-artists of today.
God said of them –
“Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?”
However, God does answer the questions… 78 of them, in fact, by the end of the book of Job. God’s answers to 78 of them came in the form of questions, though.
God is an expert at answering a question with a question.
The Truest Answer Rests within YOU.
Many times God answers our questions with questions. Questions that leave us humbled, weak, flabbergasted, speechless and with increased faith and belief.
Believing, Not because we have the answer but that we have “seen” God. We’ve seen the light and the path that we walk, better.
It doesn’t matter that we have more questions than answers. It doesn’t matter that we have more questions now than when we started our journey on life.
What matters is that you see God, did it is in the seeing that lay before you the answers. The truest answer to all your questions… the truest answer rests within you .
The truest answer to all our questions is to : WORSHIP HIM.
One thing remains: questions… we just cannot live without them.
Cheers to you wherever you are in this beautiful world !
