Sometimes we find ourselves asking questions; about life, our job, something we want to know more about, our relationships or maybe where exactly we came from. There are times we question ourselves; why do we do A, why can’t we do B or am I doing C right?

Why do these questions come up for us? Aside from natural curiosity in some cases; in other circumstances than say, knowledgeable growth, why do we question that which exists in our life? What gives us that nudge, the one that says “Hey, you need to take another look here…”

I suppose that there are those times that we purposely come up with questions to sabotage ourselves. We are questioning our strength, our capabilities or our dedication in an effort to distract our minds or hearts from hard work that is required of us. This is when we come up with all the excuses required to “answer” the question we have; “Oh, it’s because…”, “I don’t have time”, “I don’t have enough money”, etc.

I am talking about the OTHER questions. The deeper things that seem to “pop” like a bubble in front of your nose, announcing suddenly “WE NEED TO KNOW MORE”. The things that seem to appear from nowhere, something you may never before have given a second thought to; suddenly it is front and center in your mind and you can’t let it go. Where do THESE thoughts in need of more information come from?

“One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind.” – Alphonse Bertillon

“All bodies emerge from the soul and return to it. The visible emerges from the invisible, is controlled by it, and returns to it.” – Lao Russell

I imagine that it is our TRUTH, our TRUE PURPOSE, calling out to us. “This is your next step” or “It’s time to do/know…” Our inner self is guiding us and giving the spark intended to ignite a FIRE!! We are being fed an energy source that will link us to a new path, or maybe back to the source from which we are intended to be working from/with. We are being gently led by the hand through a doorway which leads to an exciting new chapter in our lives.

If we accept that the “question” may actually be the “answer” that we are searching for, we can find ourselves in a beautiful and exciting new place in our life.


Laurinda, once again you've given me a great deal to think about. Good writing does that.

A quote came to mind and I wanted to share it with you:

To believe and to understand are not diverse things, but the same things in different periods of growth. (Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
Thank you so much Susan!
I LOVE that quote, it's going into my book!!
I like where you said "If we accept that the question may actually be the answer that we are searching for we can find outselves in a beautiful and exciting new place in our life." Where did you get all that wisdom?!
I am TRYING mom!! LOL
It really makes me feel so good to get these compliments...they are only my thoughts, as I grow, learn and realize truths about life!!
