Why am I born?

Why am I born to a particular set of parents?

Why am I born in a particular country?

Why am I labelled into a particular religion?

Why am I like this and not like that?

Why are other like that and not like this?

Why are there so many questions?

Its a good thing this “why”… it helps us thinking.. it sets us thinking.. It helps us see a larger picture….It is absolutely required… Anybody talking against the use of this why should be viewed with scepticism.

But then….

The Why can never be answered. Why is the way of specialization. Each answer to a why simply throws up another why? It’s something akin to the human pyramid chain structure.. starting from the top…


Why is of the mind…and the nature of the mind is to throw up more “Why’s”….It listens to the whole story…one thinks that one has got the answer… but suddenly the little devil ends up asking “why”

It happens at times… especially with children… they simply keep asking why?

Why is the earth round?

Why isn’t the earth flat?

Why does the Sun rise in the east?

Why cant it rise in the west?

Why is the sky not green?

Well… simply there are no answers…

From childhood to adults, we are not rid of the “Why”. The object of our query changes… nothing else happens… from the outer to the inner…from the objective to the subjective…but there are no “answers”

A day arrives, after realizing the futility of Why….the Why drops… One just moves on “accepting” the way things are… The energy that was getting utilized in “Why” now gets released… now becomes available for channelization…for the movement forward…
