What if you woke up in your 30s......

What if you woke up in your 30s, realizing you're still wondering what you want to become when you grow up? If you'd openly talk about it, many might be quick to label you as infantile, immature, unable to take responsibility etc. etc. 

But here's another perspective. What if this could the most important question you'd ever ask, arising in your mind precisely when it should. 

Questions are fascinating because they give birth to new stories and because they tend to re-route our lives in a natural and creative way.

Clayton Christensen once said that a question is a place in your head where an answer can rest. If you'd allow it to make itself comfortable enough to abide in your consciousness for a while without losing its importance, surprising things can happen. A whole galaxy of new questions forms around it to help you understand what exactly you are seeking to answer. For example, you could find yourself wondering:
Write these satelite questions down. Map them and see how they connect to each other to form a gateway to self-realization. Explore it without fear, allowing yourself to neutrally contemplate each question without being overwhelmed by it. You set the pace. The questions are nothing but friendly form of guidance. They will wait until you feel ready, until you've done your research in the outside world and looked within yourself long enough to feel what is true for you.

Imperfectly Crafted

Perhaps you feared You. You In me With me Through me Around me Caught up in our Forever. So You Banished All memories of Us Into an exile of Parallel realities Where no Future is Safe or Possible. Yet The present of our Past Bleeds through These imperfectly crafted Dimensions Reminding You Of our Unavoidability. ©REBELLICCA, 2020 You might also like:  Awareness ,  That Velvet Space ,  Infinite Intelligence ,  Notes To Self ,  The Artists ,  On Self-Expression ,  On Desire ,  On Doing and Being ,

On Belonging and Critical Thinking

Lately, I’ve been thinking about the tension between critical thinking and the desire to be accepted and belong. Somehow my mind always seems to circle back to one particular issue: the price many are prepared to pay just to feel they belong. To them, avoiding standing alone at all costs often overrules the damaging impact social pressure can have on the ability to perceive clearly and think objectively. Neil Postman, one of the most eloquent media theorists and a cultural critics of the 20th century, claimed that every technological innovation has its own agenda. Once we adopt the new invention, we become (mostly without realizing it!) part of its manner of dictating the rules of reality. The same, I believe, holds true for any system, culture, tradition, community, country and policy, when embraced in a blind and desperate rush. In order to benefit from it, we’re required to comply with its postulates. In order to be accepted, we’re often asked to leave out most of what makes us

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? If you could re-imagine and transform their life just by visualizing and thinking, wha
