Don’t be afraid to ask questions

“Don’t be afraid to ask questions” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.

The way it seems is that if you are a person who knows a lot, that people will like you and accept you more. It really does seem that way. That is why a lot of people act as if they already know a lot of what there is to know, and that they are not lost or wandering their way through life.

But if it was what a person knows that makes us to truly like and accept a person, then many people would be walking around with a sign over their heads that showed everybody else all that they knew. So it is not what a person knows or claims to know that truly attracts us to a person.

The origins of our fear

So why do we sometimes feel the need to act as if we already know a lot of what there is to know? Why do we not feel safe, why do we sometimes feel afraid when we know inside of ourselves that it is time to ask a question?

It goes back to that feeling inside of ourselves that tells us that we will be safer if we keep silent and ignore our natural instincts to know. There is a feeling that contains false information inside of ourselves that tells us that by being curious and asking a question, that we will be left standing naked and lose our pride and respect, and that people will not like us.

But people are not truly attracted to you for what you know even though it may seem that way. What truly attracts people is when you are a person who does not feel threatened by what they do not know, or exalted by what they do know. People are attracted to a person who is aware that they are worthy of all of the love that there is, regardless of what they know or do not know.

Blessings, Babajide

    Andrea,

    some of the questions that are at the root of my being and cause me to be fearful are about purpose and existence. What are the ways I can find peace to these kinds of questions, especially for someone who grew up as a christian? Is there a God? What do you personally believe? I would love to get an opinion from someone as wise as you!

    Hi Juan

    I personally believe that God is a term we can use to describe the all-that-is omnipresence that is at the root of all existence. “God” runs through us, and therefore we create our realities because we are extensions of God. As God is an infinite creator, we have infinite choice in this life to follow whatever purpose we feel suited towards…and a sign that we are highly aligned in our “God Self” is a high vibration. So long as you feel good, happy and alive, I feel you may trust the direction your life is taking.

    I hope that helps!

    XO
