Humans are inquisitive beings. We always want to know the “how’s” and “why’s,” even when the answers don’t do us any good. And often they don’t. Often “how” and “why” can be two very disempowering questions. Yet from the very beginning, there I was, asking just that: “How?” “Why?” “How does this work?” “Why is it here?” “What’s going on?”
I never really received an answer that satisfied me.
It was only after I realized that I wasn’t going to be given any more answers—from external sources, anyway—that I came to the conclusion that maybe it wasn’t important for me to know. Perhaps it would even be counterproductive. But there were clues—alluring hints that I’ll share with you now.
