When the blog questions began, 75 days ago, that the exact number of days before the opening of a new year 2017, according to the Gregorian calendar. Now there are 11 days until New Year (Monday – Sunday). As is customary, the remaining blog postings will ask you just one question. That question may inspire you, it may perplex you, it may anger you, it may be the catalyst for indelible change, or it may even tickle you. Each question could inculcate stronger mindfulness.
The intent of all 75 questions is to probe, to prompt a reaction, to get you to stretch, to press beyond tradition or boundaries, to think broader, to break free, to face the fear, or liberate you by confirming what you already know for sure. You are only asked to respond each day with a thoughtful answer to the question.
Each question, ultimately, is to give you the intimate space to recover how to love yourself which by compassion omnipresence expands and then allows you to love and share empathy for others.
“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.” ~Jack Kornfield
These 75 question can precipitate change. The question is to be a pathway to inner change that leaves you feeling affirmed, more safe, in control, powerful, intrigued, and authentic.
When these amazing emotions are opened up within you (they already exist), you change and your world changes and the whole world changes with you.
