Question everything……

I always encouraged the children I teach to question everything – yes, including what I teach them 🙂 Here is my answer to the question “why?” I believe it feeds our curiosity (many of those I taught 11-16 yrs had already had their natural curiosity for learning dampened); stimulates our inner fire (we are not empty vessels to be filled with the beliefs/opinions of others); enables us to consider other possibilities (there are always alternatives to the ‘wrong/right’ ways). For me questioning everything is also about asking myself: “Does this theory/experience/statement etc. serve me in what I want from life? In what way does it affect me/others? Does it create value in any way?”
