In January of this year  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”…
You can take a sneak peek inside the pages itself by visiting this link:
Changing your world, ONE Question at a time…
What do you need?
Why do you need what you need?
What will you do to achieve those needs?
Beyond the surface, are those needs any different than another?
If we are honest with ourselves, willing to expose the vulnerability that lies at the heart of any need, we will ultimately find an impulse of innocence. When we can remain grounded in the innocence of that need, by acknowledging and remembering it with our attention, the need can be cultivated beyond mere survival orientation.
Peril and promise can be found in the present moment; with attention and awareness we have the ability to shift and transform individual needs to a level where they also impact and enhance the greater needs of the whole. There is freedom and power in the innocence of every need; when we unleash that innocence by becoming aware of that innocence, we access the kind of freedom and power that can transform the greatest of our limitations; what was once bound, becomes unbound.
As we shift our orientation from the distraction of “out there”, settling into the quiet innocence “back there”; we re-orientate the nature of our thinking, being and doing to a new level of Being where all creation arises.
At this level of stillness, in the ground of silence itself, the thinking, the being and the doing will naturally synchronize to an underlying unity, were all thinking, being and doing is inspired. In the stillness of a quiet mind, the thinking, the being, and the doing, will inherently become the support of all sustainable action and need.
Here’s the third question:
3) How can I elevate the visions and aspirations I have for my life so they are synchronized in solidarity and kinship with all others?
