When I started thinking on what to blog for ‘Q’, instantly a “Question” popped into my mind. So, what’s there in a “question” was another question which followed. When I sat down to blog about this I found this topic has got the most things to write about.
This post is a part of A-Z Blogging Challenge April 2013.
Interestingly the questioning nature of our mind, which can also be called as curiosity is one characteristic which decrements as we grow in the case of most people. A child asks more questions always when compared to an adult.Why do we lose the curiosity to learn more? I remember a Steve Jobs quote here which aptly defines our mindsets when we grow old.”When you grow up you tend to get told the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world. Try not to bash into the walls too much. Try to have a nice family life, have fun, save a little money. But that’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact — everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you … and you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. One you discover this simple fact, you will never be the same again.”Steve Jobs was a wonderful thinker and I always tell this quote to myself. We restrict our mind to accept that “our life is limited” and lose interest to achieve something in our life.These thoughts are evident in the minds of human who wants to lead a mediocre life.
Not all things can be brought under the radar of questioning.There are certain things which transcends questioning such as “The Concept of God”.None of us have seen God physically yet all of us trust in a supernatural force which guides us throughout our lives.At some situations in our life, ignoring a questioning mind might prove to be useful but those instances are very limited. I want to see a world where people always involve themselves into insightful conversations trying to unravel the mysteries of mankind.I want to see a world where the incessant curiosity of the child is never lost in a person even when he becomes an adult.I don’t want to see blunt people accepting all things as it is.We can chisel every thing around us and customize it in accordance to our needs.All these wants of mine can only be fulfilled by a “questioning mind”.
