Why Questioning is a Matter of Life

“He explained to me with great insistence that every question possessed a power that did not lie in the answer.”  ― Elie Wiesel, Night

IMG_5571Without query, there is no growth in life. This is how we grow spiritually. Questioning promotes learning and production. Curiosity and desire fuel creativity. Creativity leads us to our soul’s purpose. This drive within us is authentically our own. No one else has this exact design. Even if they ask the same questions of themselves, their imprint will send an answer uniquely theirs.

Questioning our desires and motives teaches us about ourselves. We not only find what we like and dislike, but we come to experience the very state of our existence. The issues that bog us down tell us who we are, what we fear, and why we’re holding back. The matters which soften our hearts introduce us to our gifts and help us to lead with love.

When we become comfortable to piddle within our own confines we lose sight of who we are meant to become. As we are shaped internally we come to know a new satisfaction, an inner peace one finds when traveling the path only he can meander.

Question yourself. Question those around you. Question life.

Listen. Learn. Grow.

    Amen, Suzi…and I totally agree! We have to question, to learn and grow.

    • You are certainly welcome. It is truly something I believe. The things that drive us, our creations, are the very heart of who we are which leads to where we’re going.

  2. Your post reminded me of this quote from Rilke.

    “Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

  3. This photo is so beautiful. I seem to constantly be questioning. Life. My self. My children. My intentions. And sometimes, thankfully, it’s a pleasant place to rest in the answers. Lovely post. It’s always so peaceful to visit your site, Suzicate. Love it.

  4. True, True, True! Everything in life begs to be questioned! How does ______ work? Why it ______ like that? What can I learn from _______? Life is never meant to be taken at face value. We were created to discover, analyze, problem-solve and always wonder about things we don’t yet know the answers to.
