Why is it good to question everything and why people don't ask enough questions?
We have been trained ever since birth to not question our elders, police, doctors and so on. We are led to believe that these people are never dishonest. Why? because they have a title? Why should we have blind trust for someone we just met, because of a job title. Does the title Boss mean this person (your Boss) will never lie to you. Does the title teacher mean this person will never molest your child. There are so many things we take for granted in life, but the truth is we should never take anything for granted. I know this sounds cynical but blindly trusting someone because they have the title teacher or police officer is wrong. Sooner or later your going to run into someone who dose not live up to their title or worse.
I had a teacher that used to tell me that I asked too many questions. As I go on in life the one thing I am sure of is, "you can never ask too many questions." Not just about people either. I think that instead of blind trust, a temporary "this is what I know to be true for the moment" or "For now I will trust what I see," or "for now I will trust this person."
Our eyes and other senses can lie to us also. I have seen a desert mirage that looks like a lake and have eaten apples that taste like grapes. So when I say I see the number 44 or 144 I am not just questioning why but also how and where. I have noted that sense I have started recording when and where, the numbers have not been showing up with the same intensity. I suppose it would be a little bit like watching a pot boil, or it could be just in between events.
So that is it for today think good thoughts and have a great day.
