Do questions excite you? Questions are still the focus, as this blog, the 100th Opening Your Mind blog, is posted? Questions that inspire further thought and self-reflection are the goal. Superficial answers and blue-print explanations are not!
These excerpts from the first Opening Your Mind Blog posted on July 21, 2020, may illuminate why we pursue questions over answers?
“Warning! This blog is for those who prefer questions over answers! If you are looking for answers you need to look elsewhere. This blog is about opening your mind to self-reflection. It is about questioning yourself to find answers. This is not to suggest that we have all the answers inside ourselves. It is to suggest that our own mind is a great place to start the search. By looking at what we do, how we do it and why we do it; we can learn about who we are. If perspective is reality, (it is, isn’t it?), then by looking at who we are, we may be able to answer questions from our own unique perspective.
A question invites exploration. It is open to research. It often requires thought and reflection. What attracts us to questions? Do we really learn more from questions than from answers? Are people who prefer to grapple with questions different than people who prefer to be given answers?
Are you intrigued by questions? Excited by “mind-required” questions? Inspired by thoughtful questions? If so, you might be a question person. This blog is directed at you. Please provide feedback, follow us and keep asking questions. If you prefer set answers, this blog is probably not for you.
