I like this cartoon but there’s one issue I have with it.

It’s that the Trojan horse appeared as a gift but contained devastation, whereas questions appear as devastation but contain a gift.

Are you overwhelmed with questions? I can help you.

  1. Hmmm,

    I suppose that depends on what is the purpose of questions is. If it is to break down unhealthy walls between people, establish and maintain healthy boundaries and mutual thriving then yes to anyone with an unhealthy wall then questions can appear to be devastation but contain a gift.

    On the other hand surely questioning that breaks down people and builds unhealthy walls may appear as a gift but contains devastation.

    Important to weigh things up depending on the circumstances and questions being asked perhaps?

  2. I LIKE this cartoon! LOL!

    In my opinion, questions do break down good and bad walls… and they should. And then, we rethink the walls we need for our protection, and rebuild them with more understanding (about ourselves and the others), and even build them with more kindness (towards ourselves and towards others).

    In fact, I lean towards walls being built on the sand of philosophical questions. It is more responsive to change.

    Building a wall on the concrete of philosophical answers is only good for a few years, at best. 😉
