Unfrequently Asked Questions

September 16, 2009 at 11:24 am Leave a comment

There are a number of questions that we try not to ask. Why? Because we can’t answer them very easily, if at all. When we are young and questioning everything we tend to ask more searching questions, but as we mature and fit into the life that society sets out for us, we learn not to ask . When we get older and realise that our time is starting to run out, we once again take up some of these questions:

Who am I? (an old perennial)

What am I?  (a variation)

Why am I alive?  (The existential question)

What is my purpose in life?  (this is a toughie)

Is there a meaning to my life?  (and how do I find it?)

How should I live my life?  (Socrates’ favourite question)

Maybe you have some of your own favourites? Let me know.
