Sorry, I had to ask…

“If you have to ask, you’ll never know.”

I don’t know how I should take that… but, I love the phrase — Okay! Sentence. Purist, pft! — because it favors intuition. In philosophy, for example, people are asked to explain why they believe what they believe. The problem is, though, that the reasons offered are, oft times, only an approximation of what they already believe through their intuitive, or prerational, thought.

It can also apply to aesthetics and more subjective fields. In courtship, for instance, if you are in a situation where you ask a woman out and she gives you an ambiguous reply — and you have to ask what she meant by her answer, it indicates a lack of discernment on your part, which no amount of explaining from her can account for.

It also applies to this note: if you have to ask what the hell I’m on about, no amount of explaining on my part will fully enable you to grasp my point of view.

About Seeing with Brahmin eyes
My sense of humor can be keen, sarcastic, silly or corny -- sometimes all at once. I enjoy meeting new people with no preconceived ideas about what or what is not possible. You get much more out of life by being open minded and willing. I'm an easy going, good-natured person who loves life and loves people. I'm both optimistic and realistic and pretty objective when it comes to assessing situations, events, etc. In general I am a very positive person and you'll usually find we with a smile on my face.

    I had to read this several times for it to sink, probably because I always have believed that if you don’t ask you will never know.

    • true, in most cases, we do need to ask. πŸ™‚

      i guess the gist of this note is: stay away from asking the obvious.

      forgive me, i don’t think i’m making any sense at all. hahahahaha!

      let’s just charge this one to those random rambling moments.

      thanks for dropping by…

    True. Asking often, gets you into more complications than intended. And most times, it isnt what you wanted. Prolific.
