The Most Important Question

Every time I attempt to psychoanalyze myself it starts with the question "why?". Yes, I am aware of my emotions and behaviors but without sussing out the reason, the observations are somewhat pointless. Most of us are born with an insatiable desire to learn which is why children have an endless stream of whys that usually ends with and adult telling them to quit asking questions or the unfulfilling response of "that's just how it is". Great discoveries have been made because someone asked themself why and searched for an answer. 

What defines a child? Someone who still has physical and mental growth left to do. I believe what keeps us young as full grown humans is keeping that childlike questioning. Many problems in the world like racism, depression etc continue on because people don't ask why they feel the way they do and attempt to change it. Instead they accept things as they are and appear. Everyone should always be growing mentally / spiritually (or whatever term you wish to apply to the ethereal portion of our being) and asking questions is a large part of the key. 

Question everything, observe and analyze. That is the only way you are going to improve your life and the world around you. Why? Because there is still a lot to be discovered in the universe and who better to find the answers than you.
