Question Marks...!

Monday, June 21, 2010


Questions coming out of a mind are like bubbles being produced in a boiling mixture, indicating that some noticeable change is going on inside it. This comparison relates that questions are an integral part in the development of a Human soul, determining the pace and direction of an individual’s viewpoint.

Reason and logic originates from the groundwork of questions. Scientific and Philosophical discoveries form the driving force of any society. Such discoveries are also a product of questioning. So putting Question marks when observing the Nature is the same as friction that helps space crafts and rockets take off for their journey to great heights.

Such is the power of Questions; they take one higher and higher, and around the whole Universe, discovering new avenues for thoughts and ideas. But there is one factor whose absence and existence can totally change the outcomes of this power, and that factor is Faith.

Without Faith Questioning is like weaving nets and getting oneself entangled in them. Doubts and fears may overpower a questioning mind if it fails to recognize its own power of Faith. And this may permanently halt the motion of a Human soul and its flights may come to an end.

If one has absolute Faith that all the questions one has are surely going to get answered, questioning can help one find horizons far and wide. But when doubts and fears enter a questioning mind, the upshot is confusion and bewilderment.

In order to carve a healthy society, we should take our questions out of the box of Doubts and allow them to breathe in the fresh air of Faith.

Namrah, you just correlated the quality of questioning to the power of faith very beautifully.

The ability to ask questions is half of the knowledge, and having faith is half of the success. When both will be in contact, the result would be amazing.

Wow, what an interesting site & post and similar to the other comments, I love this phrasing and meaning: "Without Faith Questioning is like weaving nets and getting oneself entangled in them...And this may permanently halt the motion of a Human soul and its flights may come to an end."

And I like: "In order to carve a healthy society, we should take our questions out of the box of Doubts and allow them to breathe in the fresh air of Faith."

(Not typical in cynical societies & groups & yet so needed...this kind of fresh air.)

There's just one question about your post on questions & faith here:

Is this really the goal of our questions? to have "absolute Faith that all the questions one has are surely going to get answered?" or might there be another addition to Faith which may allow many questions to wait for answers and even perhaps be dissolved in the mystery or in peace? I'm suggesting the quality of Love....

I hope you don't mind that I borrowed an earlier piece from your site? I hope it's not out of order or too recent?

Dear Connie
At times when we reach our goals, they can turn out to be new paths, so I think having Faith on oneself can be one's goal as well as an addition to one's Faith leading one to a new road for a new journey to some new questions that can help one answer the first question and find a world full of answers :)

Please share what u think of it? :)

Hello Dear Namrah,

Well actually I thought for a few moments that your site was the same as another since it also had the word Caravan in the site's name.

Well, I'm so enlightened by this post as well as your comment here...I just love your faith which just shines brilliantly in that phrase: following a new question on a new road: finding new questions to help answer the first and (bring) "a world full of answers:)

I suppose my slight qualification earlier was only want to raise the suggestion that perhaps some if not many of our questions may sometime be simply transformed rather quickly or forgotten in the Face of Love meaning the ONE? This experience of course can "show up" in any number of ways and is usually not expected yet is KNOWN for what it is...for Who He Is...when it does...

To see my recent interests, just look for the NON-human rights items and find things on Equanity and one just now posted with heart within flames & poem by Rumi "It's Rigged" and look just for the truth, beauty and joy we share so beautifully here together on RR...(the rest is work I must do as an American, part of my calling yet only a part. :)

Thanks a lot Connie :)
and the other site u r talking about has no connection with me :)

Coming to ur question,
I think that even a simple transformation requires the questions to be a part of ONE WHOLE in the Face of Love because the source of every single question is the Eternal quest of man to know, and all of the questions finally get absorbed in the stream of that Quest.

I m so excited to know about ur interests and i would like to add that ur comment helped me see the matter through a new and more thought provoking angle. Thanks a lot for contributing :) Please keep coming!
