Q #2 ~ Ten Questions for a New Humanity…

Lilloet Lake 008

 

In January of this year [2009] I completed a small, self published title: Soulananda; The Essentials of a Good Life.  Within this book there is a segment called “Ten Questions for a New Humanity”.  I believe this to be a very important piece that has value, meaning, and relevance for those who are interested in creating a life that is congruent with their highest aspirations; for those who are looking to be the change in their own life and the world they live in.

My intent is simple, to stimulate a ripple effect by encouraging others to engage these ten questions consciously, mindfully, and purposefully, whether that be by journaling, meditative contemplation or direct dialogue with another or even within a group format.

For the next 10 consecutive days I will publish one question a day from Soulananda; The Essentials of a Good Life and Ten Questions for a New Humanity. It is my hope that these words may inspire you to begin or perhaps even deepen your own journey of enquiry into Who You Are.  It is my hope that by engaging these questions you will begin or extend your present conversation and connection you have with Self, “others” and our Earth, that it will spark greater levels of congruence within that One relationship.

  I encourage you to send a link from this blog to three of your friends or more who you think might be interested in participating within this conversation.  I want to invite you to post your own responses to each question when you feel guided, so that we all can share in the inspiration and words of wisdom that may unfold out of your own inner dialogue and vision.

If you would like to further support this initiative AND my work, you could also visit the online publisher of Soulananda; The Essentials of a Good Life; and, for a small investment, order the full colored “booklet”…

Changing your world, ONE Question at a time…

From birth we are conditioned to believe that we have a separate, individual, existence that is independent from all other forms and phenomena.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  No concept or way of being could generate the kind of pain and suffering we all experience as a result of this particular idea.

The results of this distinct idea cause us to pursue ways of thinking, being and doing that become mechanical expressions of the mind; driven by motivations based on the idea of separation.  As we lose ourselves in distinction, we isolate ourselves from the greater whole within life; we lose touch with the essential underlying unity.  However unconsciously, we develop a psychology of “I”, based on the lie of division, segregation and dissociation from our bodies, from the Earth, and from the great suffering that lies within ourselves, the Earth and the rest of humanity.

As we begin to question, examine and discard self engendered, self centered ideas, we create the space for the voice of inner wisdom to be expressed; we begin to weave a tapestry of colour that includes a spectrum of elements that can align, enhance and elevate the actions we take to support not only our own needs and the needs of others, but also the greater needs of the Earth itself.

While the foreground of life demands action, it is the background of Being that underlies all expressions of doing.  To become aware of Being, is to elevate the doing.  As we elevate Being it naturally enhances the foreground of doing; the dreams, desires, gifts and talents we pursue, enhance not only our own well Being, but also Environmental well Being and Social wellbeing.  As we enhance with attention the experience of our inner Being, all expressions of Being are themselves enhanced… 

 Here’s the second question:

 

2)     Do the dreams, desires, gifts and talents I pursue, enhance and elevate the resilience I have to my own life experience, to my own inner wisdom and the service I could provide to the ONE greater Earth community?
