If you never ask yourself any questions
about the meaning of a passage,
you cannot expect the book
to give you any insight you do not already possess
Some questions are so deep that they shine a light on the essence of life. Even Voltaire once said that we should not judge a man by his answers and rather by the questions he asks. We know others better by asking them the right questions and we learn more about ourselves if we ask ourselves the right questions. Asking introspective questions can help to built a strong foundation for a happier, more grateful life.
Ask yourself thought-provoking questions, in order to cultivate good thoughts and to maintain a conscious awareness of who you are and who you can become. The best questions help us to reflect on ourselves and to reconsider the way we live and look at the world. Questions we ask ourselves can turn into wisdom and guidance. These answers I wanna share with you today, do not have a right or wrong answer, thinking about them IS the answer.
- Who am I?
- Is there something, I shall let go?
- What is my purpose in life?
- When was the last time, I was really happy?
- Did I do something worth remembering?
- If this is my last day on earth, would today be enough?
- What do I want to be remembered for?
- When did I last step out of my comfort zone?
- What worries me most about my future?
Some of these questions might be easy to answer and some of them may not. However, they give us something really valuable: They guide us to real fulfillment, happiness and peace. Maybe you do not know how to start introducing these questions into your life. My tip for you, is to start journaling. Write down all the questions (maybe you come up with some by yourself) and just start writing EVERYTHING down that comes to your mind then.
