Why do we ask

    Why do we ask so many questions about stuff that has nothing to do with where the truth is at?

      People ask question simply because they are yet to perceive Truth..

      And they fail to perceive Truth because it is hidden by their own desires.

        So true kess.  We desire to live forever.  We have an intense desire for something greater than we are to pat us on the head and tell us "It will be alright".  We want there to somehow be a "purpose" to our lives beyond perpetuating the species. 

        We allow these desires to become so strong that even when Truth does present itself we fail to see it when it contraindicates these desires.  We want them so badly that, as Jarami points out, we refuse to look where we might find truth because that truth isn't what we want to hear.

    To question is to grow. We start this as children..."Mommy why is the sky blue?"

    As we get older the questions become more complex but still they can be innocently asked.

    Question to find the truth...perhaps. Sometimes the journey to find the answers is what is more fun.
