“It is easy to allow questions to confuse your process – if you believe all questions must have answers. In the process of choice and perception, asking questions for their own sake becomes a clarifying tool.” P. 131 SIMPLY AN INSPIRED LIFE coauthored by mary anne radmacher/Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Asking questions is a great tool. Questions become contrasts and ways to weigh and measure. Consider. Observe. I do not allow the questions to distract me from my quest – and become involved in trying to find answers to them all. Questions do their best work when they lead to me perspective, not specific answers. And in that, I find inspiration in this, from George Carlin, “Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.” With laughter this reminds me to stay with my focus in the day and avoid the distraction of petting the sweaty things.
