Q: How many questions are there in the Universe?

A: An unlimited number.

Not only that but, like the Universe, their number is constantly growing. It’s a bit of a headache trying to keep up with all the important questions, and a worse one attempting to answer them.

It would be ridiculous for anyone to try to answer all the questions in the Universe, wouldn’t it? So why is it then that we allow them to exercise so much power over us?

Next time you are faced with a question you can’t, or don’t want to answer, try responding with:

“Hmmm.”

“Good question, I wish I could answer it.”

“I don’t know.”

“I’ll get back to you on that.”

“Why do you ask?”

These are just examples. Practice responding like this, and you’ll see what I mean. You might even begin to feel better, so why would that be?

It’s no good having and open mind if it is only ‘open’ to what yo want to hear.
