Q #6 ~ Ten Questions for a New Humanity

resize6

 

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…

 

Can I listen to “my” Self?

Can I hear” my” Self?

Who is THAT One voice within?

The culture of peace and affirmation begins and ends inside us; the movement forward can only be elevated by the movement of our attention inward.  We become stewards of the Soul by becoming aware of Soul.  As we become aware and attentive to the One great Soul, unspoken words and conversations that we have within us are transformed; they become the guiding principles from which to live our life. 

A mind that is distracted by unnecessary things will always entertain, thoughts, feelings, emotions, perceptions, memories and associations that confuse, distract and overwhelm our subjective experience; our self engendered thinking becomes the self engendered suffering we experience in our daily and worldly life.

In our quest for new ways of living and Being in this world, we are eventually confronted by necessity to examine and investigate ALL core beliefs we have about ourselves and the world we live in and the “I” we imagine ourselves to be.  What lies have we been told about how to live life and how to be in life?  What lies do we tell ourselves that keeps us locked in the prison of our social conditioning?

The peace and affirmation we so desperately seek and need for a sustainable life will never find permanent residence in the form and phenomena that exists outside our selves.  It is only when we risk taking the journey within, that we will find the clarity, stability and authentic affirmation and expression of our own Being, which then corroborates and calibrates the words and conversations we need to have, without. 

Peace and affirmation are noble desires; their essence, foundation and core live in the values we entertain with regard to Who We Are. The movement forward is the movement towards a voice and Self that is still and quite.  It has no demands.  As we cultivate the culture of this inner connection with our attention, there comes a time when we realize that inherently within us, the One who is asking was the One we were seeking all along.      

Here’s the sixth question:

 

What unspoken words and conversations do I need to have or hear to foster a culture of peace and affirmation?
