We all have taken classes in the past. During the class, we or our classmates may have asked a question that had no answer, but the question itself caught your attention and caused you to seek answers on your own. On the other hand, perhaps you have attended a class where eloquent questions and detailed answers were provided, but they really did not do anything to raise your curiosity.

In the context of Tending to Your Garden Within, it is important to ask the right questions when dealing with issues pertaining to our garden within. The right questions may be, “Why do I insist on having certain fruit trees? What flowers do not grow in my garden within and why? Why I do not enjoy the fruits of my garden within? What are my resistances to having a more beautiful garden within?”

It is necessary to be aware of why we ask or do not ask certain questions. Sometime we use questions to distract ourselves from asking the right question that may have a great impact on us. Our ego does not like to be challenged or threatened. Therefore it tries to provide us questions that seem deep, spiritual, and eloquent with a hidden agenda of securing its position and survival. The poem below further illustrates some typical questions that we may ask.


We ask many questions in our life time.

Some questions have long answers, some short

and some

have no answers.

Some questions are a mental exercise

to avoid the real issues at hand.

Some questions may have answers but

serve no purpose.

Some questions may raise awareness but

answers may not be needed.

It is important to be aware and ask questions

that help us in our self growth journey.

Instead of asking

When will I find someone to make me happy?

one may ask

Why do I crave for someone else to make me happy?

Instead of asking

How or when will I die?

one may ask

How can I be more alive?

Instead of asking

What is their hidden agenda?

one may ask

How can I find out my own hidden agendas?

Instead of asking

How can I ignore my anger and hate?

one may ask

Why do I not want to face these deep emotions?

Instead of asking

What is the next step?

one may ask.

How can I trust myself more?

Instead of asking

What will this get me?

one may ask

Where will this lead me?

Instead of asking

What should I learn next?

one may ask

What is driving me to learn?
