Question Everything, But Ask Good Questions
— Amanda Pope, RScP
“An unquestioned mind is the world of suffering.”
— Byron Katie
We have all heard the unrelenting interrogation of a 3-year-old, “Why? Why? But Why? Why? Why?” that is usually followed by something like, “Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Muh-uhm-meeee?”
We can learn from the natural curiosity of children. Join us as we explore the value of questioning everything and the importance of asking good questions.
Tune in early at 10:20am to hear the music of New Thought musician, Gary Lynn Floyd.
This Week’s Science of Mind Theme
The answer to a question is found within the question itself. Questions open us to possibilities.
We are born with a natural curiosity. When we are young, we have a desire to learn and understand more about the world around us. We imagine that anything is possible. This curiosity sparks creativity and our willingness to ask questions expands our world.
Question everything. By asking questions we can see a bigger picture and challenge our limiting beliefs; we start to see and do things differently; we learn new things; we become more creative and innovative.
We often ask questions and seek answers externally, but there is an Infinite Intelligence always available within us. Spiritual discernment helps clarify: What is mine to do? What’s the next step? Where do I go? We might not have the answer, but there is that within us that does. Rather than trying to find a solution with our limited knowledge or resources, spiritual discernment allows Spirit to provide an answer. Regular practice strengthens our ability to hear the still, small voice within and to trust its guidance. Our minds are one with the One Mind that only knows the highest and best.
A willingness to stay in the question opens us to more expansive opportunities, creative ideas, and inspired solutions. Living in the question makes us available to Spirit. It creates a space in which the Infinite Intelligence can be heard, a space that is sure to be filled with the answer at the right time, because Spirit always fills a void. It frequently comes in the wonders of every day: a line from a movie, a post on social media, a conversation with an acquaintance.
“Asking a question signals to Life that you are ready to live the answer, and then Life lives it through you at the appropriate time.”
— Mary O’Malley, What’s in the Way is the Way
