That zeal is focused on formulating the questions and seeking the answers.
However complex or simple knowledge, the seeker wanted to know, but a good and relevant question will help him or her to grow in the right direction rather than a vague and irrelevant question.
Speed of growth by the quality of questioning
Then his Guru replied, " Your question itself is wrong. How can you expect answers from me? Your question could be like 'What happens when bad things happen to the good people?' and I answer, 'They become better!' "
It is possible for the intellect to dictate the direction, if it knows how to ask the right questions. This is only possible when a real zeal for the inner clarity, is burning in us as a fire. Because, that fire makes us to focus completely on asking or framing the question. That fiery focus obviously makes the question powerful.
Just ask a question to your intellect, "Why all problems for me?" and listen to its answer. Then ask another question to it that "Why I am so lucky?" and listen to its answer.
Now observe the difference and experience the power of a question.
"Questioning is our most important intellectual tool"
Positive attitude by questioning
A question, "Why she does not understand me?" makes us to blame others and feel that, some injustice happened to us. Instead, if we question "What can I do to make her understand me?" creates a feeling that the situation is still in our hands. This makes us behave in more motivating and responsible way.
Importance of right questioning
There is an inner lock present in our intellect. So it will be in a state to answer whatever question it comes across. If it cannot, it tries to get answers somewhere from this whole world. Hence, carefully choose your questions to move your intellect in a constructive way.
Discover yourself and everything with questioning
Arjuna created a direction to the intellect of Lord Krishna with his questions. Now, we call that as "Bhagawad Gita".
When a seeker is thirsting for the inner clarity, the questions with great intensity arise from his inner, then automatically a Guru arises to provide an answer.
