The Power of the Question

There is power in the question that asks enough to get the mind to think. There is power in the question that leaves enough mystery for the recipient to discover. There is power in the question that leaves its mark not at the end of sentences, but at the beginning of truth.

Mystery plays hide n seek for us, waiting, even wanting to be discovered.

Why do you seek truth?
Why do you seek purpose?
Why does it bother you if your life doesn't have purpose?
Why are you sometimes empty?
Why is it that sadness even touches the rich and the famous, who seem to have all we might seek?
Is there power in the question?

The most important questions we can ask are about ourselves. Question yourself.

As Socrates once said, "An unexamined life is not worth living."

Only proud people fail to question themselves. They are vocalists on American Idol, who think they are divas but are really God awful. They are bloated with self esteem, living in a delusion that serves themselves at the expense of themselves.

They are the ones that believe in themselves.

Ask why until you have to ask who....
