Practice Living In The Question: The Art Of Self Investigation!
Questioning is an activity that checks and renews our spirit. In order to come up with powerful solutions, we have to ask powerful questions. The questioning attitude presumes an attitude of openness—that we don’t know it all and we’re open to new dimensions of learning, experiences, and information. Questioning invites the creative process. It starts with not knowing and creates answers out of the void or nothingness.
With this notion in mind I will post a question each week and encourage you to live in that question, to discover what the dream activist in you replies! So, plan on asking yourself this week’s question, and any others that come to mind. I also highly recommend writing in your journal, as new insights come to you, and also talk to other dreamers about what you are learning and discovering.
One of my favorite quotes is: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”~ Mark Twain~ Let’s Sail!
