Ask why only about your motives.

Inquiring the reasons behind beliefs and actions of others is just a way not to face your issues.

Inquiring the reasons behind phenomena in reality is just an intellectual amusement for the mind, a complete waste of time.

Be brave and question only your beliefs, always inquire what is the true motive that stands behind your beliefs and actions.

Self deception is the greatest enamy

What you describe is the hardest task for men. So few try to follow it. Very few actually succeed to follow it.

what instead of why

What we think is the "why" usually is not really the "why". It is the reason in the model of reality we built in our mind that is hardly ever coherent with reality.

It also assumes that there are doers, or more precisely that the objects we see are the actors of the actions in which they are involved.

Therefore it is better to avoid as much as possible the question "why" and instead concentrate on the question "what".

After reading the above sententence; the following words of GURBANI came to my mind

SHUBH KARMAN SE KABHUN NA DARO; meaning; not to be afraid of deeds of those actions of self ( inquivisitiveness by self in this case )which originate in self; especially those which originate from a nature of auspeciousness of self; in self.

It is important that our beliefs originate from; the powers of the abilities of; only the reasons, actions, and strengths of the pure and clear qualities of the nature of auspeciousness of self; for;

they only and nothing else can; truly and really build the true and real purpose and reasons of self; in self; especially of those of; truthfully and righteously helping us to truly and really empower and enable our minds with the true and the real powers and abilities of them only; for;

such purpose and reasons of self only; and nothing else can; truly and really help us to;

1) freely feel think and perform actions of them only by self;

2) faithfully guide us to to believe in; the powers and abilities of the strengths of such powers, abilities, reasons, actions, strengths, purity, clarity, qualities, nature, auspeciousness and self only; in the realities outside; as the true and real guide of our own selves; and finally;

3) generates, operates, and drives the powers, abilities and strengths of them only as the real driver of those worldly reasons of our selves ; with which we perform the duties of actions of either believing in or not believing in.

It is important for us that we attract, receive and gain the reasons, actions, and strengths of the pure and clear nature of auspeciousness of self; as mentioned above; essntially; of those qualities and abilities of goodness and praiseworthiness of the realities of those objects and activities of the outside world of self only; about which; we feel the need to enquire;

This is possible only; when we work hard to ensure that the body, mind and intellect of us has the capacity, and capability of themselves to receive and gain the true and real blessings of self for self; especially those which are imbibed with;

1) Qualities of actions of goodness; for ensuring that that the character of the naure of self is equipped with energies of goodness of love, luck; judgment, religion, and charity of self; by self;; fearlessness,; freedom, faith, religion, and virtues of them only;

2) Strengths of actions of goodness; for helping the self to clear doubts of the mind of self; regarding actions of love, luck; judgment, religion, and charity of self; by self; fearlessly,; freely, faithfully, religiously, and virtuously;

3) Powers of actions of goodness; for helping the self to resolve issues of the mind of self; regarding love, luck; judgment, religion, and charity of self; by self;; fearlessly,; freely, faithfully, religiously, and virtuously;

4) Abilities of actions of goodness; for helping the self to renounce those agreeable, disagreeable, and mixed fruits of actions of the mind of self; which were gained earlier in the body, mind and intellect of self; while ignorantly pursuing objects and activities of love, luck; judgment, religion, and charity of self; by self;; fearfully,; with bonded-ness and attachments of the mind of self with self; un-religiously, and non-virtuously; by self only; and for the satisfaction, pleasantness and happiness; and welfare, wellbeing and wellness of the body, egoism and intelligence of self only.
