Certain things are not always completely obvious, they are obscured by whatever conditions that will cause you to come to an inaccurate conclusion. Things are not always as they seem, it is difficult to separate the tears from the rain, just as it is difficult to catch and hold the wind in the palm of your hand. When assuming anything that thought may or may not be correct or even remotely true, of course, strong gut feelings can be extremely accurate if you are perceptive enough.
It is the exercise of wondering, the questioning, the search, that opens the doors to the personally accepted truth, those seeds of thoughts that can reveal your deepest longings or desires for what to pursue. The search for truth is a long and at times elusive or illusive path that can be traveled in search of what is sought, from time to time answers are found - yet once in a while they are not.
