I doubt there are many people in this world who do not have a million questions rolling around their mind on any given day. Why doesn’t she love me? Why is he mean? When will I get a pay rise? Why do the children not listen? And even the big ones like; Why are we here?
Many of these questions could be answered very simply, yet I am sure that in most cases, even the other party cold not answer them. But the big questions in life keep us searching and guessing year after year. Religion and science play a ping pong game with the question leaving every one a little bemused by the entire question. But maybe we are not supposed to know the answer?
We are a curious species that always searches for more answers to everything in our lives. The hardest one of all would probably understanding ourselves, yet alone the other people we spend our time with. I have lost count the amount of times I have sat after an incident, once the initial anger subsided, lost in why I reacted the way I did. I have often not liked what the answer was as it showed my insecurities and worries, a defense mechanism because I didn’t like what was in front of me or what that said about me.
So the real question is could we really handle the truth anyway? Whatever the truth and real story is about why why we are here and what we are supposed to be doing, we will obviously find out one way or another so whats the rush. Remember Einstein always used to say, “If I had one hour to solve a problem, I would spend 55 minutes finding out what the question is.” Maybe we are all just asking the the wrong questions?
