Life is in the Questions

I think perhaps the worst piece of advice is to not question anything, but instead go along blindly with the pack. Indeed, it is in the questioning of anything, that we find new answers or answers period. Sometimes your answer may be different than the one another has chosen, and that’s ok. The second worse piece of advice is to try to fit in and be like everybody else.

When we create anything in our lives, its manifestation began with a question. Most people don’t realize this. Every answer we receive is the result of a question that we have asked. This does not mean we have asked the question verbally. It means we have put forth a vibration that opens to a possibility of something new. We may be completely unconscious of the questions we are asking. This is why it is important to check in to see what questions we are asking on a day-to-day basis, because they will give us clues to the answers we will receive. Those answers come in the form of life experiences.

“Why am I such a geek-magnet?” “Why am I surrounded by idiots?” “Why does this always happen to me?” Notice how these types of questions do not deliver the answers you want. They do not attract the relationships you desire. They provide you no solutions. In order to get those solutions, you need to ask a different question. “I wonder how I will meet my ideal mate?” “I wonder what’s the best possible way to find joy in my work?” “I wonder what wonderful adventures, joy, and glory await me today?” These are questions worth asking because they give answers worth living.

One other mistake we humans tend to make is to ask a question and then give ourselves the answer, instead of allowing the answer to come to us. We ask a brilliant question like “I wonder what it would be like to meet George Clooney?” Then we proceed to go into a full blown daydream about meeting George Clooney including what he might say and do and how we might react. Then we wonder why we go about our lives never meeting George Clooney. The truth is, when we answer our own questions the Universe has no space to give us its answer to the question. We already filled that space. If you live out the answer in your mind, it’s as if you have lived out the answer; therefore, the Universe has no need to provide any further information or experience. It’s done. You completed it all on your own.

The lesson here is STAY OUT OF THE ANSWERS AND STAY IN THE QUESTIONS!!!! Did that get your attention? Sorry to use the All Caps on you, but it is a really important point – one which most of us miss. Life is found and created in the questions. You can’t even begin to provide an answer as wonderful as the Universe can deliver. This reminds me of a quote that I have heard Oprah say many times, “God dreams a much bigger dream for you than you can ever dream for yourself.” So get of the way and allow the Universe to give its dream to you. All you need to do is ask the question and remember the Universe will provide the answer, not you.

Here’s some homework. Pick one question that you will ask yourself daily through the month of March and never answer. You will ask yourself this question over and over and feel the tingly anticipation its possibilities provides. Make sure you feel the life in your question. Say thank you and move on. If your question gets answered before the end of the month, ask “How can it get even better than this?” Enjoy the magic and miracles that will surely ensue!
