Ask, and it will be given to you;
seek, and you will find; knock,
and it will be opened to you
Listen to Wise Words
These timeless words from Matthew 7:7 show us the truth, which is possible to understand for everybody. Sometimes people forgot wise words and wondered why nothing changes in their lives. It is the same as if we are thirsty; we need to get up and fill up a glass with water. Nobody will bring it for us if we can take care of yourselves. Food, shelter are familiar things, but if we want to advance our career, have the best health as possible, significant relationships in the family or with neighbors, we must show our willingness and take action.
Be Courageous, and Ask
What does you think it is better: to be a fool for few minutes and after the answer to know how to deal with your problems or just lead your life living in the dark and making suggestions. There are many shy people, who are afraid of authorities or big personalities. Of course, it depends on which country do you live. I guess there are some not so comfortable situations, where freedom of speech is forbidden. Anyway, the Internet is mostly everywhere. You can type your question in Google and answer will show up within few seconds. Nobody can guaranty that this particular solution is best. It is great to check information from few sources. Wikipedia is trustable website because people who write articles are volunteers and experts of described fields.
Anyway, trying to get answers from the person, books, references or the Internet gives you the ability to know yourself. Information, which you get, makes you feel relaxed and trusting in yourself. This feeling leads to bigger discoveries. Your curiosity grows, new possibilities show up. It happens in this way because you do not stand in one place. You move forward, expanding your horizons.It starts with the simple question.
We used to give answers and respond to questions when we were children. When we are adults, the routine can make our lives dull. Using our brains to explore the world, looking for answers how to improve our lives and at the same time how to help fellow human beings, gives us the opportunity to see everything from the different angle.
Be Open to Answers
Sometimes we just ask looking for approval. We know what something can be wrong, but to please inner voice, we need assurance that everything is okay. It is okay for us, but after giving questions, we can hear or see the different side of the story. We can be disappointed, confused or overwhelmed with discovered information. It can change our world, which could be the fruit of our phantasy, suggestions, and imagination. I think it is okay if answers do not please us. Anyway, we know reality or how this or next situation is now. Everything changes. The people, weather, opinions, science move forward. What it was good yesterday for one, nowadays are the questionable and old style to others.
It would be great, that people could be flexible, open to new findings, to other people’s opinions, world view. We can reach it, always exploring, asking and adapting knowledge to our lives.
However, fundamental values as respect to each other, not doing harm, compassion, and love are timeless. I guess nobody will ask why do we need them.
