Last night in the hot tub, the phrase “prime questions” came to me. These questions do not refer to the manifest world of objects, thoughts, feelings, or perceptions–all that comes and goes. The questions ask us–metaphorically–to turn around and notice what is true.
Prime questions cannot be answered.
They can be known.
Here’s a twinned pair of prime questions:
Physical objects arise in space; in what does space arise?
Events arise in time; in what does time arise?
If we are willing to
and truly consider what the questions point to, our lives will be altered irrevocably.
