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”…

Changing your world, ONE Question at a time…
What do you value?
What absent values need to be cultivated in your life?
New beginnings require inspiration, inquiry and innovation. The promise of a new tomorrow is created in the expression of allegiance we have to the present moment and the expression of the Self within. As we learn to abandon values that no longer sustain new ways of Being, we must also with imagination, adopt values and principles that reflect the diversity and unity of Who We Are and who we want to Be.
The tension we experience in life is often reflected by the tension of conflicting values within us. Through inquiry, exploration and inspiration, we can elevate values that support us in the expression of our authentic Self, while also enhancing the relationship we have to those who may not entertain similar commitments but share a common vision of living in harmony with Self, “others” and the planet we live on.
There are no formulas and there are no rules for “inner” or “outer” transformation but along the way we may find inspiration and guidance in words of truth spoken and lived by those who have pursued or are pursuing the journey of discovering who they are. We may discover new ways of Being, having and doing that lie outside the conventional values that we presently have.
Here’s the seventh question:
What values do I need to enhance or adopt to form a solid foundation for a personal, sacred trust towards sustaining a new life and world?
