Q #4 ~ Ten Questions for a New Humanity…

Lilloet Lake 024

 

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…

In the world of form and phenomena there appears to be a finite number of choices that are responsible for an infinite number of changes.  Which of those choices will enhance, and which of those will detract you from your most innocent, most well intentioned desires?

The illusion of choice is that there appears to be choice.  While we might imagine or even believe that it is the “I” orchestrates the choice and change that may appear to occur in our world, the Universe itself, points that “I” towards its extinction.

Conventional reality suggests that there is a separate, distinct, identity scripting the impulse of an ever changing reality.  Ultimate reality suggests that for anything to occur, the entire Universe must itself concur in agreement for that very event, action, decision or choice to occur.

The presence of “I’ can only, ever, be an obstacle to the purest expressions of Being.  While the “I” might struggle and strive, calculate and confuse the most important of steps to be taken; it is the value of Being that underwrites all doing.

Life is uncertain. Change is uncertain.  Our fragile future is uncertain.  To move forward, there must be a radical transformation in the expression of our thinking, being and doing.  We must evolve the limitations of our external self, by engaging it actively within its own evolutionary impulse of an inner Self. 

What does not work is obvious, what will work remains unseen.  The bridge of evolution lies dormant within the consciousness of the one who struggles, the one who strives, the one who suffers and the who wants to figure it out. 

Change is inevitable.  Destruction is inevitable.  Life too, of some kind, is also inevitable.  What you need to do will become obvious as you ground yourself in the silent space between thoughts.  The choices and the decisions; the actions we need to take; the circumstances and situations that encompass all events will continue to come and go, guided and enhanced; elevated by the silence within you.  In silence you will find nothing; and from that no-thing will arise every-thing.       

Here’s the fourth question:

What changes do I need to make in the way I live my life that, if made, could improve the quality of my own well being and the wellbeing of the greater world?
