I've been thinking about the "Why's" in life. We all ask why at some time don't we? Well... what I've been thinking about is this:
Is there really an answer to that question?
Religion says it has the answer to that... God
Because I believe there is a reason for everything....... Though people have said to me many times before... just because it is... there doesn't need to be an explanation for everything. Yet... isn't that the same kind of "blind faith" that "christians" are said to have towards God?
I don't think saying "I don't know" is the same as blind faith. Which is essentially what one is saying when they go "Just bc it is".
I like to ask why why why too. I also love to overanalyze things to death - and it can suck the beauty out of things. On the other hand, it can be a great curiousity that sets us looking at things afresh. It can inspire creativity. A person can really penetrate when they want to know why.
Anyhow, once I asked a question along the lines of 'why' and got the answer "It is not the why, but the what, you should be asking".
I thought about that, and it made a lot of sense. Identify what you see properly and precisely. Avoid the abstract. Rather than speaking of the 'big words' like truth, beauty, god, love....just describe what is there!
Ex: I saw a flower today vs. I saw a pansy with blue speckles and a bee buzzing around its stem.
Reasons and explanations for everything isn't needed when something is lived completely. Does that make sense to anyone else? It does to me.
