I replied a minute ago to a topic about an "answer," but I wonder...what is the question? I'm sure a lot of you came to zen asking a question, me too. I think a lot of us came looking for an answer, but what is our question? Hmmm...it seems to me that we should know our question clearly, but for me it's not so clear.
How do I live life?
To me that sounds like a good question. But it doesn't seem to be quite right. When I ask it, there's still some doubt, and I wonder if that is truly my question. There's one big question that I can't pin down. Maybe it can't be pinned down. Hmmm, just thinking of it makes me confused.
Maybe there'll always be a question that we can't answer that stays with us. Maybe it's a part of life, the mystery.
I don't know if it's just me, but I often wonder about what my question is. I look far and deep sometimes just wondering, but I don't know. I remember reading someone who said to keep a "don't know" mind. It's pretty scary and uncomfortable when I come to this "don't know" place.
