Questions rather than answers
Byron Katie in her book A Thousand Names For Joy writes:
Whatever realization I have had for me; there's no way I can give it to you. And even if I could give you my realization, by that very act I would be saying, "You can't do it. I'll do it for you." I'd be teaching dependency and telling you that the answers are somewhere outside you. I have nothing for you but the questions.
This really validates me in my practice of "answering" people's questions with further questions. Many times when somebody asks me for guidance, they are hoping for an answer. But instead of giving them an answer, I give them some new questions to ponder. This might not be what the person expects, but it allows them to discover the answer for themselves, which I personally believe is a thousand times more valuable.
