“At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.”
― Leo Babauta
If I ever do an interview with Oprah and she asks me what I know for sure, I will reply:
God is in the questions. Spirit is in our inquiry, whether the large philosophical kind or the random musings. In the pursuit of asking questions without shame, we ultimately find that which we are seeking.
Sometimes asking questions can be hard because deep down inside we know that we may not find the answer. We have been taught to respond with surety, to push away that which we can’t specifically define.
It’s a scary place to live in the questions, but it can be far more liberating than holding back that impulse that ultimately wants you to grow.
Asking, wondering, critically thinking– it moves us forward. Its a beautiful dance. It is my meditation.
Why? Why not? Who am I? What do I want?
Such simple questions can completely change the landscape of our lives. Can cause us to imagine different lives, myriad solutions, and endless possibilities. It can bring us answers from very unexpected places, if we are open.
Keep asking questions. Keep finding light.
