I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it. ~Jack Handey
What if the ego is who you really are?
What if the Buddha/Christ/Muhammad was just some guy that was seeking—no different from you or me?
What if they were wrong?
What if what you believe is more correct than what others espouse? (Seriously—who knows?)
What if that bad thing really was bad and really happened? (What if this isn’t illusion?)
What if the point of all this is all this?
What if there is no end game and it matters what you say and do now, but only now?
What if there are no answers and the point is all in the questions not the answers?
What if we all have it wrong?
What if we are supposed to eat meat?
What if the hokey pokey is what it’s all about?
Have you sat and thought today? Have you questioned? Or are you too busy telling others what they should think? Are you so sure of yourself that you have stopped wondering, asking, experiencing? Do you only seek that which agrees with what you already think you know?
It is better to know some of the questions than all of the answers. ~ James Thurber
Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new. ~ Og Mandino
Why do we quote others like that some how validates our thoughts? Why isn’t what Bob says as important as what the Buddha said? If we are all one then all thoughts are equal and all people’s ideas and thoughts are just as valuable – why do we need letters after our name to prove we know something? Why do we need years of experience if time and space are illusions?
Ahhhh…better—I was having one of my doubting Thomas why and what if days…just thought I would share a glimpse of the mind of Aminda. It can be a fun and entertaining place…well, it’s never dull any way. And, who knows, maybe one of these questions will lead you to the answers you seek.
Enjoy your time on the meditation cushion!
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. ~ Elwyn Brooks White
