Where Are The Answers?

We all have been in those tricky situations when we need to find an answer/solution fast, but we struggle to find what we are looking for. Remember: I can’t see the forest because of all the trees…

Usually the answers/solutions are inside us. All we have to do is asking the questions that help finding them. Children have it easier—they still are curious about everything, ask questions non-stop and in general do not rely on past knowledge.

Krishnamurti said: “The day you teach the child the name of the bird, the child will never see that bird again.”

There is a memorable scene in the movie “What the bleep…” talking about the Red Indians who were not able to see the ships at the horizon. It is all about what we know and how open we are to new things; to question everything.

That’s why I am not offering any pre-defined solutions but I will ask questions that will help to find the answers which are already in the person.

Are you asking enough?

Are your questions challenging enough?

    Hi,
    About the scene in “what the bleep…”. Does anyone know the historical document were this came from? There must be a book or other documents from were they took this information.
