I Don't Know - Meditation With A Child

Why do we have to change?
I don't know
Why do we have to be kind to one another?
I don't know
Why do we have to listen to things we don't want to?
I don't know
Why can't we believe what we want to believe?
I don't know
Why can't things just be as they should be?
I don't know
Why is it wrong to be cranky and throw things?
I don't know
Why don't you know?
I don't know.

Ah, but you do know --
each day -- each moment
is a chance for creation ...

and for this we must have
stimulous from the world,
such as your photos and words,

and they will always return to you,

as you know

Why can't we, as adults, ask questions like a child? There may not always be the answers we seek, but if we don't ask the questions, there will never be any answers. Some questions though are better left unanswered. For how dull our world will be if there are no mysteries.

I agree, Vi, and I think this is what I was aiming at. When a child asks a serious question, often the answer they get is "I don't know" because they are too young to know, or parents don't wish to burden them with "stuff". Perhaps in asking these questions again as adults, we can get there. Good thoughts;-)

The secret then,is not what you ask, but who you ask ...

or more significantly,
if you are asked a question ...

Yes, Faucon, you are probably right there.
