Life and Questions

So how do you handle life and questions?  You like that I started with a question?

I was thinking about this today.  I was wondering why is it that when we have questions – that we need answers.  Is it a western mindset?  Is it just an American thing?  Is it a modern thing?  It can’t be a post-modern thing and if it was, then no one would care.

I was wondering if the eastern mind can live in the questions.  I know in the rabbinic tradition that learning was marked by questions – that the rabbi would know whether you were progressing in thought by the questions that you asked.  Those students lived in the questions.  They kept asking questions.  They kept thinking of questions.  Learning would not progress with the questions.

I wonder how education and formation would be if I lived in the questions.
