Have you ever noticed that especially where the spiritual or The Divine are concerned, there seem to be two extremes where questioning is concerned. On one extreme, there are the folks who question everything so often that we wonder if they have any faith in anything. But then also there are the folks who consider it a sin to question anything! I've even seen some who didn't seem to want me to agree with them if I cited a source they didn't think well of.
And here we come to the "B-word": balance. There is very little that we do that does not have faith in its basis, even in the basics of survival in the most mundane aspects of our lives. If you go to a faucet to get a drink of water, do you get the water analyzed? If you go to the supermarket to buy food, do you check it for contamination? There are some things at the root which we depend on faith for!
And then, of course, there are the basic core values we all share. But you you as an individual work with The Divine is something that is personal and individual. And so, your answers might not be the same as someone else's. For that matter, someone else's answers might not work for you, either.
So, let's explore the question of questions.
