Living The Questions of Your Life
‘Instead of asking, “What do I want from life?”, a more powerful question is, “What does life want from me?’ —Eckhart Tolle
It is a miracle to be here. We are all here to do something. We are all shaped by our experiences. Every experience is meaningful. We become who we are meant to be so we may bring what we are meant to bring to this world. We are connected to Everything; there is no-one and no-thing we are not connected to. Our choices, intentions, interactions and energies ripple out to others and come back to us. Once we are aware of all this happening, synchronicities abound that connect us to more of ourselves while enhancing others’ ability to do the same. The Universe/God works perfectly in assisting all of this, but once we are aware of it, we co-create with Life. This all happens, not by figuring out the answers to life, but by asking and living the right questions. We all have specific questions we are working with at any given time to assist us along the way.
To live a question, we must acknowledge and accept that we don’t know the answer. We are then in the unknown. The unknown is where we can experience more of life. We must open to the present and live each experience fully to get from it what we are meant to. In this way, we embrace the art of not labeling situations and accepting that all things are unfolding as they should no matter what the details appear to be. We widen our perspective. We no longer need to declare if things are good or bad. We just flow with the circumstances and try to hear what life is saying to us and what question it is presenting for us. We let go of seeking the answers as we flow with the questions. Seeking answers requires future and creates the illusion that we will be somehow better or more complete once we have them. This can only create suffering as we long for a moment other than the one we are in. We receive only the answers we are ready for and they change over time and circumstance. The Divine joy and love is in the questions and allowing them to flow through you at the perfect time for you.
Once we know how to live the questions, we can dwell in peace that has tinges of fearless excitement within. We won’t sit idly by and simply watch everything, we will live authentically with clarity and purpose as we ground our actions in our true essence. Life will show us how to do this if we can only listen.
Watch the synchronicity in your life. Watch the dots connect. Notice what you are meant to receive from each person you come into contact with. Notice what you can give back in return. Be with nature in a way that fills your energy to assist your higher frequency vibration. Watch your conversations. Notice the books that appear at just the right time. Notice Divine energy assisting you. Be kind to yourself. Forget trying to know and embrace living the unknown. See the beauty all around. BE nature instead of in nature. Listen with all your heart. You can function this way always, you don’t have to return to surviving and struggling all the time. Peace can envelope you as you live your questions and evolve to the next, never rushing or resisting, just living in the present.
Lean back and look at the whole of your life. See how it has all connected in meaningful ways to shape you into who you are now. See all the ways that Life has provided for you. Let that feeling embrace you. I call it a Universe hug and I believe that the more you can feel those hugs, the more frequently you receive them. We all need hugs. Feel that hug from the Universe and love and embrace who you are now without judging how you got here or where you should be instead. Just love you now and connect to everything around you as you expand and fill up with peace.
Living the unknown and loving the questions, the “little me” in us quiets down and the larger “I” that is connected to all things Lives. It is a Divine paradox to realize that the only true knowing is found in living peacefully in the Unknown. The question IS the knowing. Living the question is living what you know.
Today I pray to be still and live the question of my heart. I pray to gratefully and peacefully abide in the joy of connectedness to All. I pray to remember this message as I live the moments of my day.
I am sending you love! May you hear your question and feel the joy of living authentically with it.
So good! Thank you! Posting it as Miracle #10441

It is exactly the wisdom and reminders I needed in my life at this time. As you may know, I’ve been in a soul searching mode of what next for my life, work and more. I will be practicing these wise lessons, starting with loving the questions.
May we learn to love and embrace the unknown. Blessings, Brad

I loooove this article!!! It is so wonderful! It reminds me of something Lucy Maud Montgomery said in one of her books: “It is not about what I can get out of life, but what I bring into it.” something like that. I think there is a reason behind everything, everyone we meet and everything we experience. Lately I started thinking that perhaps sometimes, even I can take the role of the teacher, meaning, that when I meet someone, it is not only about what I can learn from them, but maybe also about me teaching them something. This has lead me to be very open about my life and be more courageous to speak up. I feel more confident and valuable. I wish we would all be equally open to give and receive without holding back! 🙂
Another quote I like which I think is from Swami Vivekananda is: “In life, always take the position of a giver” Wonderful! Thank you for inspiring me!! 🙂

I love that you are connecting with the teacher inside you! I believe we all have one in the stillness inside and we can heal and evolve as we help others do the same. I feel that we learn what we teach. I love your message of courageously embracing this. I am excited about your blog…we are a big poetry family.
