January’s Questions For You To Ponder

It’s been awhile since I last posed an entry with a bunch of spiritual questions for each to ponder. Given that I’ve been in quite the introspective and philosophical mood as of late, I felt today might be a good day to do this exercise again. I also decided from this point forward to repeat this exercise once a month, as it seems to stimulate great discussions each time I do. I hope each of you will take a moment to answer them and maybe even share a few of your responses back with me…

1.  What song(s) have stirred your heart to greater unconditional love when you’ve heard them?

2.  Which movie(s) have moved your heart to greater unconditional love when you’ve watched them?

3.  If you could communicate to one deceased person for only a few minutes, what would you say?

4.  If you could spend one more day with a deceased person, whom would it be with?

5.  If you could change one thing in your past, would you, and if so, what would it be?

6.  If you could ensure one thing would happen in your future, would you, and if so, what would it be?

7.  If you could find out the exact details of when and how you will die, would you?

8.  If you knew the exact details of when and how the person closest to you would die, would you tell them?

9.  If you could own a profitable business that would help make the world a better place, what would it be?

10. If you could become best friends with one person  you’re not already best friends with, who would it be?

And one more question for good measure…

11. What is the one thing that always seems to unravel your peace and serenity in life most often?

Peace, love, light, and joy,

10 More Questions For You To Ponder

We all ponder various philosophical questions in some fashion or another on almost every single day of our lives. Back in July of this year, I decided to capitalize on this very thing by posing 10 questions of my own for each of you to think about. Because I was told on more than one occasion how they generated good spiritual conversations, I’ve decided to do this exercise again with 10 more. I hope all of you will take a little bit of time to reflect on each of them and may your spirituality be blessed in the process…

1.  You are in a group of people where one of them is making severely racist jokes or comments. What do you do?

2.  If you knew you only had one day left to live, how would you spend it?

3.  If you were suddenly given one million dollars tax free, what would you do with it?

4.  If you had the ability to change one aspect of the entire world all at once, what would it be?

5.  Where would you say the majority of your happiness is coming from these days?

6.  You’re having lunch with several people whom you love and cherish when they abruptly all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing that person  is your friend. What do you do?

7.  If you could effectively communicate one piece of advice to all newborn children in the world where it would change each of their lives forever, what would it be?

8.  If you had to be stranded on an island with one and only one person for the rest of your life, who would you want it to be?

9.  If you could instantly change one and only thing about yourself permanently, what would it be?

10.  If you could instantly change one and only one thing about your closest friend, spouse, or significant other permanently, what would it be?

And here’s one more for good measure:

11.  What three things are you the most grateful for at this very moment?

Peace, love, light, and joy,

10 Questions For You To Ponder

I thought it might be interesting today to do something completely different with my writing. Instead of me sharing about something spiritual going on in my life, I decided to pose 10 questions that I hope you will ask yourself and ponder. Each is truly meant to help guide you into taking a deeper look at your own spiritual journey. While I do hope you may share some of your answers to them with me, I sincerely pray that you find more enlightenment on your own spiritual journey in whatever they end up being.

1.  Who or what are you giving the most attention to in your life these days?

2.  When is the last time you told someone you really loved them unconditionally and expected nothing in return?

3.  Is there anyone, alive or deceased, that you just can’t seem to truly forgive?

4.  Name one selfless action you’ve done lately, where there was no hidden agenda?

5.  What does your daily spiritual routine consist of?

6.  When was the last time you lost your temper and what caused that to happen?

7.  What does spirituality mean to you in no more than a sentence or two?

8.  Do you pray, and if so, what do you normally pray for?

9.  What is your conception of a Higher Power?

10. What do you think your spiritual calling is in this life?

And here’s one bonus question I decided to add at the last minute for good measure:

11.  Besides when you sleep, how much time do you spend each day in silence?

Peace, love, light, and joy,
