“Asking a question can be a sacred act.
A real question assumes a dialogue, a link to the source from which answers come.
Asking a question is a simple, profound way of initiating a relationship with the energies and powers around and within you.
Talking, telling, explaining, complaining, railing, criticizing, praising, lamenting, beseeching—these are the ways we most commonly approach important questions.
If we can drop all these for just a moment and simply ask, wonder, become curious about . . . an opening for an answer will be created.
Questioning by its very nature is a spiritual practice.
We come into dialogue with God, our true nature, wisdom, whatever we choose to call it, whenever we stop, look inside and take the time and effort to really listen to ourselves.”
( Susan Piver, The Hard Questions for an Authentic Life )
