Questions For You

Posted December 3rd, 2015 at 09:50 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I have always been a questioner. All my life i have wondered about things and tried to figure out what was important, what was meaningful and what was of value. We face a barrage of ideas and images designed to manipulate us in so many different ways- commercial, political, religious. I think it is important to know what we ourselves are made of in this world of confusion.

Recently a friend has asked me some important questions, and I have scrambled to refind my answers. Sometimes I donít remember why I decided something or when it became important. Iím further down the road, and I donít always remember what road sign sent me this way.

I was asked if I thought all people were of value. Am I an equal to the five billion on earth, or superior, or inferior? Does it even matter?

What makes other people have value? How can people Iíve never met, individuals I donít know exist have worth? Do they have any value at all?

I thought these were good questions, because they are the foundation of a personís worldview. How one feels about others and oneself become the platform for all other philosophies and beliefs. It is the sidewalk that leads to the house of the meaning of oneís life.

But is it something that a person ponders and then arrives at, or is it a state of being that one then defines and explains? Likely it doesnít matter how you get there, but itís a trip we all must take.

Now I am curious about this and as a questioner I just have to ask.

What do you believe?

Are all people of value?

If people have value, what is it? What makes them have value?

Does this impact your life?

I refer you to the story of The Gordian Knot.

Merry Christmas!

Hmmm. That's a difficult answer to unravel.
I can't cut through it because I don't understand what I'm left holding.
A complex thing that can't be unraveled? When dissected it changes shape, loses meaning?
I'm not buying it. Everything has a logical explanation, not matter how improbable. There is always a truth...
