Never Stop Asking Questions
If you want a simple prescription for accessing the field of intelligence, then every morning before you enter into a period of silence or meditation, put your attention on your heart and ask yourself, “Who am I? What do I want?” Ask yourself these questions, and then listen.
The universe is a field of possibilities that is compelled to make choices when you ask questions of it. There’s no need to go looking for answers. The moment you ask these questions, the answers start to appear. In asking these two questions, you invite the field of infinite possibilities to make the choices for you. Just ask, and something will happen. Some clue will start to appear in your life that answers these questions.
The answers may come to you in the form of an insight, an inspiration, a chance encounter, a sudden creative impulse. The answers may come through synchronicity and coincidence, a relationship, a situation, a circumstance, or an event.
Some other questions you can ask yourself are: What is the purpose of my life? What contribution can I make to my family, to my society, to my world? What are my unique talents, and how can I express them in the service of humanity? What brings me peak experiences and joy?
Keep asking questions, and then allow the answers to incubate. This period of incubation allows the cosmic computer, the essence of infinite consciousness and infinite correlation, to compute the infinity of details in the complexity of the situation and give you the right answer.
To experience and practice power from asking questions:
- Spend time in silent communication with your soul.
- Pay attention to the qualities of pure consciousness.
- Never stop asking questions.
