“What is the most important thing we can think about in this most extraordinary moment?”–Buckminster Fuller
I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again. The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the questions you ask. The universe will always match you question for question.
Sadly, most of the questions we ask are repeats of the questions we asked yesterday. We keep wondering the “same ole, same ole” that forever locks us into a tiny box of perception that greatly limits our reality. We place amazingly low expectations on what might be possible.
Every time you ponder the question “How do I get rid of this?” or “How can I overcome that?” you add energy to sustaining the unwanted state. As you devote more and more attention to its existence, you further validate its reality. You continue to view the state you’re attempting to overcome as a linear, predictable “problem.”
Not a lot of options in that teensy box.
Here’s what I’ve learned from quantum physics. Despite how it looks, we humans and everything else we lay gaze upon are, at our core, nothing but patterns of light and energy. We are entangled with all other beings on the planet, forever linked with the indivisible “Field of Potentiality” or to use Luke Skywalker’s vernacular, “The Force.”
By continuing to ask the same boring questions and residing in the same uncomfortable little shoebox, we block the flow and full expression of the F.P’s power.
The force, to borrow from Luke one more time, “can’t be with us.”
So my intention is to ask bigger questions, to think bigger thoughts?
“What if?” is always a good start.
“What if our politicians could see eye-to-eye, to join forces for true and lasting change?”
“What if every child on the planet had a hot meal before they went to bed tonight?”
“What if every family had a roof over their head?”
“What can I do today that makes me dance with joy?
“How can I grow into the loving, wise, inspiring person I am meant to be?”
“What marvelous thing might I create today?”
Anything is possible, but we have to imagine it first. The more big questions we ask, the more we dare to say, “What would it look like if….?,” the bigger our lives will become. Putting your attention on something calls it into existence. We can literally reshape and redesign our lives by asking bigger questions.
