I believe in powerful question being way more important than smart answers. Because they open up new dimensions, new possibilities in uncharted territories. I consider the one in the title (I am grateful for it to dear Mary-Alice Arthur) as a very powerful question, for me at least, because I can so easily get stuck in the dreamland: “Well, I would do this and that, but I don’t have the necessary support, and perhaps this terrible thing could happen, and I would lose my basic safety…”
For instance, when me and Robert Gonzales started to play with the idea of hosting a retreat together, we immediately decided to do a dream retreat. To go full-throttle and hold nothing back. To go as deep and wide and high as we could possibly imagine. To create a retreat that we both would personally die for being able to participate on. As if everything was possible and the whole World was with us.
And we started off creating it with asking ourselves some powerful questions: “What is my inner quest behind this? What is the higher purpose of this retreat and how does it contribute to the Whole? In what spirit do we want it to be happening?”
This ignited and clarified our deep passions about our Work, our existence, our purpose, our longing to contribute to the evolutionary process of Life. And the energy and the excitement we have already been feeling in regards to the retreat is incredible.
And now, when I think of it, on the 1st of January 2014, this is exactly how I want to spend each moment of my existence. In the most meaningful and passionate way. With influencing the evolution of my Life with powerful and spirit-triggering questions. With holding nothing back and not wasting a day.
As if the whole World was with me.
