Which is my favorite song?
Well, it depends...on my mood.
Do I consider myself to be a good person?
Well, it depends on what you or for that matter what I consider to be good.
What goes around..comes around? Do I believe in this?
Well, again, it depends...
I can lay down hundreds of questions to which my answer would be the same.
So the point of this article is? Lets figure this out.
In my opinion or the way I see it, a lot of things depend on something or the other. Answers to questions, stuff you do, stuff you don't do. I am not a really good conversationalist so when ever someone asks me such a question, usually, my answer is the same.
Now, you may ask why? Why can't I give a straight yes or a no answer..I say why should I if I don't believe in it.
Some questions do have definite answers. You might ask..Is the Earth round? I'll say yes. Why? Because it is. It's a universal fact and I believe in it.
Back to our topic..Lets take a few examples..
Is money everything? My answer..
It depends..on what? It depends on how much money you have, your lifestyle, your thinking. You realize it till you don't have it..
Again, back to the topic in hand..Another example
If someone asks me.."Is this particular laptop right for me?" I'll say it depends..on what you are going to use the laptop for..if its for gaming the recommendation would be different and if it's just for internet surfing the recommendation would change to something cheaper.
So the point is whether the question is a simple one such as a gadget buying query or a philosophical one such as the existence of God, my answer remains the same.
Let's go into something very deep. Should a person believe in God? You know what I'll say? I'm sure you do. Yes, it depends..The explanation? If a person is God-fearing and the thought of afterlife and/or God Himself prevents him from doing something bad I'll say sure why not. Yes, believe in God. If it makes you happy, yes you should definitely believe in God. On the other hand, if it doesn't make you happy and if you're just following blindly without any thought and you would rather put your time in doing something constructive I'd say forget about it!
I'm not saying that you shouldn't believe in God. In fact do what your heart says. If you want to do something, do it before it's too late. Stop looking for answers when you have the best answer of them all, it depends.
