If you have been around a young child lately you will notice that they are constantly asking questions. The words “why and how” are frequently used in almost every sentence. The reason being is that they are learning and open to learn about their lives, their environments, the procedures, the people and everything that affects and touches their lives. They want to know more, learn more, grow more so that they can understand and make sense and learn from what is going on. They are fully present.

When was the last time that you questioned anything?  What was it about? Were you questioning because you wanted to learn, to challenge, to grow or some other reason entirely?  Many of us would answer “no” to this question.

Why and when do we stop learning and questioning?  Do you know why you have stopped?  I do know that some of us have more questioning personalities and love to learn and research anything and everything.  Some of us are focused on other things.

I have come to learn the importance of questioning though, whether or not that is your personality tendency or not.  There are many things going on in the world today that are not in the highest good for us as individuals, for the planet as a whole or for the future of our children and grandchildren. If you haven’t been asking questions, it is really time to get back to it.  It really is part of our childlike learning nature.

I believe society and how we have been conditioned to have it run has set us up to blindly follow things and not question or look deeper. We also have gotten very distracted, stressed out and do not have the energy or focus to look deeper or further question things.

Not asking questions is dangerous. “Why” you ask?  Following orders or commands without running it through our innate processing center circumvents our intuition from having a say and bypasses reasoning, gut instincts, common sense and all our natural guidance systems.  Not using these systems sets us up to be duped.  These are our direct connections to a higher part of ourselves and our higher power as well. It truly is a fail safe connection making life easier, more magical and more abundant in all ways.

If everyone lived their lives fully connected to their internal guidance system the world would be in an entirely different state of affairs. It doesn’t take long to become complacent when we defer to something outside of ourselves to be in charge or control.  I feel like as a whole we have become complacent and have deferred to our government and the powers that be at large to make decisions for us, handle things that we do not want to handle and have given our most important asset that we have, our power to decide, away to an authority outside of ourselves.

Giving away our power is never a good thing. We are meant to be powerful and vibrant. We were each given a unique blueprint of who we are and what we are here to do. Everyone has unique gifts and talents, missions and reasons of why we are here. I believe life is like a large jigsaw puzzle with each of us holding our own unique piece to which we are to add to the puzzle. Once complete we get to move on to the next level somewhat like the next level of a video game. How exciting is that to master something and get a new mission or challenge?

I do not really know of anyone who enjoys looking at or working on a puzzle that we know and can see that it is missing pieces.  It truly is our responsibility to be connected with and working on learning our lessons, discovering ourselves and our gifts and talents and working toward becoming as whole as we can. If we chose to be stagnant and disconnected we are keeping our piece of the puzzle hidden from the work of the whole. Each of us has a role, some larger, some smaller, some visible, some not so visible but no one role is better or more valuable than the other. They all contribute to the good of all of us.

If we do not ask questions, we will not know and we will not grow.  Maybe the most important question to ask is “why am I here and what am I to be, do, experience and add to the puzzle at large?”  If we keep that question front and center we probably would never lose our way. If we did feel like we had lost our way, it would not be long before we found it again.

I urge each and every one of you to start asking the important questions. To start being more present to yourself and the ones you love. Honor you and why you are here. Believe in the bigger puzzle and know that we are all in this together. The boat is big and we each have an oar. Let’s take this boat down the river to see where it may lead us. We will never know unless we go.  Who knows, maybe that is where the end of the rainbow is and I am told that at the end of the rainbow is where you find the pot of gold.  I am game, are you?
