I wanted to make sure I didn’t wait until the final day of April to post my monthly spiritual questions for everyone to ponder. So here they are and it’s my ongoing hope you will take the time to mull them over and maybe even share a few of your responses when you’re done. And as always, my own answers are listed below as well.
- What was the hardest lesson you’ve learned in life so far?
- What hobby brings you great joy and do you still make time for it nowadays?
- What is challenging you most in life right now and causing you the greatest stress?
- What is the first thing you turn to when you’re having a really difficult day?
- Of everyone currently a part of your life, whom do you relate to the most?
- What is the number one thing you want to do (or see) before you die?
- What was your most favorite childhood activity?
- What was your favorite thing to do with your father growing up?
- What was your favorite thing to do with your mother growing up?
- What is your dream job?
And one more for good measure:
- If you could invent one thing by just thinking it right now, what would it be and why?
- Pursuing someone else’s dream that wasn’t part of my own. (Losing $650,000 of cash investments to a Bed & Breakfast I bought for an ex-partner)
- Writing or doing jigsaw puzzles and yes to both.
- My health issues.
- When I’m in good headspace – Prayer, meditation, and my hobbies. But when I’m in bad headspace – dark chocolate (lots of it).
- My spiritual teacher – Manin.
- Visit Bodhgaya in India, the place where the original Buddha became enlightened under the Bodhi tree after intense meditation.
- Playing on those metal merry-go-rounds at the playground where people pushed each other on it super fast.
- Go hiking up a mountain, having lunch at the top, and then getting a dessert treat after coming down.
- Playing card games like Gin Rummy, Crazy 8’s, and Kings In the Corner.
- Becoming both a paid motivational speaker and professional writer.
- A teleportation device so that I could travel anywhere in the world whenever I wanted.
Peace, love, light, and joy,
