Is there a path
Do we need a path
Is path part of the way
Where does the way lead
Should we follow the path
Is there only one path or many
Does way connect the paths
Does the way lead to the destination
Is there a destination
Should it be reached
Is the way the journey
Is destination also the journey
Does journey lead to destination
Can we travel alone
Do we need a guiding light
How do we know that the light is right
Is the way the only way
If there are many
Is the truth the same
Can there be many truths
If not is it a lie
What differentiates both
What is the search
Is search required
Are there fixed answers
Open ended guidelines
Left for interpretation
Is perception a prescription
Where is the search
In an illusion
Is the search the illusion .
Is illusion the journey
Is it an illusion
What is reality
Is reality an illusion
Is illusion a reality
Is there an answer
Is it a valid question
Is it what it is
Is birth the beginning
Does it make Death the ending
Is the search for meaning
Is it for a solution
Does solution lie in the meaning
Are answers already there
Is the search necessary
In order to realize that
The search is not necessary
Then are the beginning and end the same

Did time exist
Is time man made
Why is it calculated in years
Who determines the years
Did time exist before man
Does the answer solve the problem
What Is the problem
Is there a beginning
Is there an end
Who is asking these questions
Who is is being asked to
If both are the same
Does the answer lie in the question
Is the question required
If you find the answers
How are you better off
Is it to gain
Is it to get rid off
Why are we born
What happens after death
Is the gap called life
Live to seek
Seek to live
No questions asked
No answers got
Is this an option
Remove the question
Does the Answer remain
Within or without
