The most difficult question to answer is one that we all seek to get the answer to in life.
Will this work? Will it be successful? Will I……? Essentially, any question that involves anything beyond now.
The reason for that, is that ‘now’ exists, as the only time we know anything, as it is the only time we are alive and the only time we experience anything. When the future comes, it is now, always. But until it comes it is not real and therefore there can not be an answer. There is no future beyond our minds.
The lack of an answer is the challenge as it creates a psychological fear in us that we can not deal with. This leads to emotions such as worry, anxiety, apprehension, nervousness and so on, which in turn creates turbulence in the physical body and suffering in the mind.
The human mind thrives on black and white, it needs certainty and answers to save its poor little friend the ego from any risk to its existence.
We can not answer the question about the future and that is why it is the most difficult question and best left to never be asked.
A better question that we can answer and act on removing any fears is ‘What can I do now?’.
