Questions put us into action. They “call forth” a response. What is this power which “calls forth”? It engages and draws what it needs from its surroundings.
Take seeds, for example. Seeds are mysteries. They are little bits of potentiality all wrapped within a tiny, hard case. Seeds contain the power of “calling forth” plants. They do so by engaging with the soil, or minerals. They also draw forth water. And, they require warmth. Plus, light is an important element that the seed draws forth from the world.
Are we an answer or a question? If we are an answer – a fixed, non-mysterious, unquestionable being, we may be done. Finis? Complete?
Somehow, it is very satisfying to put Question Marks behind those statements.
Do we fear we have wasted our potentiality and answered the question of ourselves too soon? How can we become a “questionable” person? Can we re-kindle the “seed-ness” we were born with by simply presenting ourselves anew to others who do not know the “answer” of who we have become – or how do we break ourselves and become open questions again?
Answers exist within questions. What will we draw-forth from those around us? Love? Life? Warmth? Insights (or light)? Or facts, the fixed, mineral truths we need?
Questions actually “call forth” answers which never existed before the question arose. Can we “call the question” of our own lives and re-visit our initial purpose? Can we “call off” our pasts? Have we been “called to account” for ourselves by ourselves?
Not only questionable, I want us to ramp up the amperage of our calling-forth from one another. Let’s live our lives so that others are a bit unsure about us. Let’s keep one another on the edge. Let’s walk up a stairway of surprise. Let’s delight one another through random acts. Stolen kisses. Unexpected hugs. Tiny gifts. Thoughtfulness.
