Why ask Why

Why ask Why

If someone says, "you can't do that" "you shouldn't do that" "you shall not do that" "you will obey that" "you will follow" "you shall pattern yourself after that" "you will emulate that"

Unless it is obvious then you should question it.  Question everything.  For if you ask why and there is a forthright explanation that is not manipulative then maybe you should.

But is up to you to decide not them.


Questions to ask:

What am I or they trying to accomplish?

Will this get me to where I want to be or am going?

Am I on the right path?

What is the person's directing, cajoling, helping, pointing, motivation, etc. going to accomplish for me AND for them?

Watch behaviors of others.

Try, evaluate, and then correct your course.

Alterations create a perfect fit for you (it does not matter if it does not fit them).

What do they mean by what they are saying?

Are there any under lying meanings or hidden agendas?

What's in it for them (and you) if you do what they say?

Reality checks are always good.

Checks ensure that there are balances.

Check you reality by asking pointed questions.

Any one that will not explain may be trying to fool, bamboozle, trick, manipulate, etc.

If anyone will not be questioned or answer your questions then walk away.

Ask yourself quetsions:

What am I doing?

Why am I doing it?

Who benefits from what I am doing?

Is this fulfilling for me?

It does not matter how it affects the other person if it adverse to you then maybe it does not fit with you or your lifestyle.

Don't be afraid to create your own lifestyle that suits you.

This does not mean you don't have to check to see if it is in balance and harmony with the universe.  Obviously killing is not a good thing unless it is self defense.  Obviously hurting someone emotionally or physically is not right.  Be sensible and be at harmony with whatever greater power you believe in.  But always question that which drives to determine if it is acceptable overall.
