Question everything and only accept those things prove true. How do we learn? There are several different ways that we can infuse our minds and souls with new ideas and knowledge. However, each individual needs to determine the validity of each morsel of information for themselves, regardless of the source that is providing it. Don’t believe anything except after individual investigation and introspection have proven it to be so. Finding what is true for you is vital to living a life that is honest and true to yourself. What beliefs you accept will determine your reality.
For many people, including myself, there are times in life where we are not sure what to do next. A new situation confronts us, we have to move left or tack right, something is headed right for us! What do we do?
Now for me, either because of the way I was brought up or because I am just a very stubborn person asking anyone for help or advice is almost always out of the question because, it would reveal to the world, gasp, “I don’t know everything.”
Nostalgic Music Month Day 21
The Moody Blues by Jon Hilton
In the mid 80’s I really discovered the music of the Moody Blues. It was more thought-provoking and interesting. The songs are both musically beautiful and supply a great message about life if you take the time to listen. As I have grown over the years my philosophy of life has allowed me to find even more connections to the music and to the days of my youth. Life is a gift and we are all trying to live it in the best way we can. Sometimes you are up and everything goes your way, and other times you are faced with challenges that serve to test us. Either we learn lessons and move forward a better equipt person. Or we might be destroyed by them. The music of the Moody Blues brings hope that the results of all your challenges will be to be successful in life.
One of the most valuable skills a person can develop is asking the right questions. It seems like life keeps bringing experiences we are consciously looking for. The right question can change your focus, target your awareness and bring answers.
Questions Make Sense of Things
One area questioning can help understanding the world is making sense of things. How many times have we had an experience that was less than pleasant. A loss, a death, an accident or something else that on the surface is a totally negative experience. And that could be all it is, but when you ask the right question, you find out for sure. What is good about this situation that I don’t see at first? What are the benefits that I can’t see right now? How can my life benefit from this situation?

Have you ever seen the focus of your life change in thirty days? This is the experience that I have had over the last month as I have looked to improve my writing skill and myself, as a person as well.
This is an evaluation of my project to answer one question each day for thirty days, and to work on putting more of myself into my writing for the purpose of being more honest and open about the things I write about.
