One Thousand Questions

In the wide expanse of refining oneself, a profound yet often overlooked talent exists — the art of questioning.

“Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find.” This age-old wisdom, often deemed miraculous and divine, resonates deeply with how our thoughts work.

Imagine facing setbacks in your plans or goals; instead of pointing fingers outward, consider turning the lens inward. What if, even when the odds seemed stacked against you, you dared to ask the most challenging question: What could I have done better? Where did I overlook, and what part did I play in my own setback?

To ask such questions is no easy feat. It requires a profound desire for self-discovery and a willingness to confront the painful truths about one’s own actions and limitations. It is the act of confessing sins and flaws, of stripping oneself down to the bare essence. Yet, this act is not an exercise in self-flagellation but a courageous quest for improvement.

In this context, confession is not about guilt but a realisation of insufficiencies. It is acknowledging that even when you have given your all, errors might have crept in unnoticed. It’s about encountering opinions that act as mirrors, reflecting the blind spots and ignorance you might be harbouring. This brave act allows you to rectify errors, emerging from the experience not weakened but stronger.

“If you ask 1000 questions and listen to the answers, then you know 1000 things, some of them deep, that you didn’t know before.” —Jordan Peterson.

One thousand questions are not a mere numerical pursuit. It is the idea of committing to an enlightening journey of self-empowerment. It is about listening to answers and opinions, even when they are uncomfortable, and gaining knowledge that transcends surface-level understanding.

“Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find.” While there might be a miraculous and divine element in this quote, the true miracle lies in the realisation of your ability to rectify errors. It is the quest into the depths of your being, a courageous exploration of your flaws, and a relentless commitment to self-improvement.

So, dare to ask and seek relentlessly. You will not only discover your weaknesses but emerge stronger, ready to face the future with newfound wisdom and resilience.
