Living Philosophy

Why do we question?

Why is it accepted for the parent/authority to question the child but not accepted for the child or person to question authority? Why is it okay to ask a question about weather, clothes, food, instructions but not religion, god, creator, or spiritual practices? How can an individual know someone or something without questioning?

How can a question bring people together when it is a common idea? But when a question is asked and there is a differing of opinions it creates a fight or separation. Does it matter how the question is asked? Questions reveal deeper layers offering an opportunity to gain understanding of self. To understand the value of the question, one must come from a position of non-attachment to the answer. Is the question worth asking to shed some light on the ignorance, to reduce or remove suffering? Is asking the question wrong? Is living in ignorance truly bliss?

If there were no question there would be only silence. How boring would life be with no participation? It is natural and innate to question things, maybe everything. An animal before eating will look and smell. That is their way of asking, is this good or bad?

Questions are how we learn, share and experience life to establish a foundation for fundamentals and truth.   The question may even be more valuable than the answer.   What if there is no question then what is there to answer? The question is unique to the person asking it. For each of us have our own way of being and perceiving. This is how we are going to learn, critically think and consider the law of cause and effect.

Can a question be a statement?

Children begin their talking life with why, how and what questions to gain understanding. Does the teacher ask the question or give the answer? The question can also be expressed as an action, such as a change in direction, intensity, or as simple as an eye movement. The more understanding an individual has the fewer side effects they will experience from their own cause, their choices. If we were not meant to question, then why does the child do it innately? What mechanism or influential force imposes their will on the child, regardless of age, to stop this natural process? What if someone has no questions and just blindly trusts? Who wouldn’t want to get their question answered that could prevent suffering or pain?

Where does the question come from? Why is the question not valued? Why is the question considered to be a threat to the answer?

To generate a question one requires a reference point of conscious foundational understanding. Then, what the individual knows is used as a springboard to ask the unknown. This process continues for each on their own journey. This expands conscious awareness and understanding, which many in the past and present took as a threat rather than a gift. The questioning was seen as accusational or combative rather than objective gain for all. The art of the question has been suppressed upon over time. The questioner was judged as a direct threat to the controlling factions of many relative regions and era of time. Yet the question is required for the explorer to embark on the voyage. The question is required for the child to lift the rock. The question is required to understand a disease. The question is required to understand the author’s message in the book. The question is the key that unlocks the stagnant change of darkness of ignorance and transmuted the transfer of energy into light of understanding.

 What is life?

How do you know you are alive? What is life without feeling? Do you think or know it? Without the body, is there life? How would you know it? How would you feel without your body? How do you know if you don’t know what you just felt? Are you alive if you can just think?   What is a human with no body and just a mind? What is a human with no mind and just a body? Can the body and mind live without the other? What if both are required to be life? What if the feeling the individual identified/labeled as pleasure is pain but thinks/believes its pleasure? If pain has been felt/experienced for too long then how would the individual know any different?

 What is pain?

Why is it there? Where did it come from? Who put it there? If the pain is unwanted, why is it there? How does it get removed? Does it matter by whom? How is it possible for pain to be there one moment, and gone the next? Is it coming from the mind or the body? Is it psychological or physical? Can they be separated? Should they be separated? How could you separate them? What is the difference between pain and pleasure? Is it real? Is it okay to cause pain to get pleasure? What if you cannot feel pain or pleasure? How would you know if you could not feel? How would you know _____________*(fill in the blank – you choose) if you could not feel?

Who is the creative designer making these choices to allow or disallow this pain to occur?

 What is death?

Is death without feeling? How do you know? If the foot falls asleep and goes numb, is it dead? Or is it just temporarily disconnected from its life source? What if we feel what is not there? What if we do not feel what is there? Does the caterpillar die or become a butterfly? Where is the line where the caterpillar becomes the butterfly? What percentage is it? How do you measure that? Does it need to be measured? If we look at life and compared it to something it is not, then we will simply define life as NOT death. From that same angle wealth would be defined as NOT debt, and health as NOT disease.

Why is death acceptable? Is it determined? Who or what determines this?

Health: Investment or Expense?

What is health? How is health defined? What criteria are required to determine what is health? What if what we have accepted as normal is just common? How can the body survive if the mind does not understand the body’s functional fundamentals (the body’s physics)? How can the mind understand what the body needs without knowing its current state of debt-disease (the body’s economics)? The acceptance of a debt-disease-death paradigm has fueled a perpetual cyclical pattern of pain and suffering. Who allows life/health?

Why is it called health expense? Shouldn’t health be an investment and disease an expense?


Are you motivated by love? Or fear? We fear what we do not understand. We love what we do understand and trust. It takes courage to ask a question. It takes even more to stay and listen to the answer. What if everything was/is an experiment giving life experience, as long as the experiment didn’t cease the breath resulting in a bad experience and failed experiment?

The body is a gift that can allow the experience of life. How do you treat yours? How does yours work? Do you have enough blood in it to correct the breath?


SOS offers a unique perspective of respecting the body and mind as equal. SOS is a balanced approach looking to achieve balance in all environments. Manual techniques and asking questions to share awareness for the body and mind to reduce inflammation and pain are foundational for survival operating system therapy. Directing the mind’s focus to the body’s needs to identify actions to repay the body’s debt offers an opportunity to improve the body’s function and to reintegrate a self-nurturing relationship between the mind and body.
