Life - Transforming Questions

If the quality of our life depends on the decisions we make. And the quality of our decisions is largely determined by the quality of the questions we ask, what are the questions that could lead us to the greatest breakthrough in life? Here is a (never complete) collection of questions I believe can assist you in moving forward and transforming your life. You don't have to try and answer all of them. Instead, feel free to browse through the list and contemplate the questions that resonate with you at this moment. The questions might be used also as journal prompters and in practising meditation. What do you stand for? What person do you wish to become? If thoughts shape reality, what would you like to think about that would help you move forward? If you'd have to do the impossible with nothing, where would you start? Who are you without the doing? Who are you when you just are?

A new game begins by learning to look at things from a fresh perspective and asking new questions . To put it shortly, it all begins with allowing your creativity to find you. Courting it, inviting it to join

Unchained

Somewhere in the now distant mid 20 th century, the philosopher Erich Fromm stated that our greatest task as human beings is to continue giving birth to ourselves throughout our lives. To allow ourselves to be fully born time and time again long after our entry into the physical world, he claims, is to know the true meaning of freedom. We say we want freedom but we shy away from the responsibility of making choices. We’re forever avoiding being fully born by seeking refuge and excuses in comparing ourselves to others, in amusing ourselves to death, in demanding solutions from politicians, or simply allowing work to swallow us completely. We want to live by design yet we secretly hope to be told what to do, always seeking for recipes and formulae for happiness. "The judges of normality are present everywhere. We are in the society of the teacher-judge, the doctor-judge, the educator-judge, the ''social worker''-judge." - Michel Foucault We say we wish to b
