“An Enlightening Game of 20 Questions”

Featured


an enlightening game of 20 questions

“First question first: what’s the meaning of life?”
For you to keep on asking until you get it right.
“Gee, great insight… what on earth does it mean??”
What it means on earth is the same as in your dreams.
“Um, elaborate please! Where do I find what I seek?
You’ll find it in the hiding place which only you perceive.
“That’s three questions for you – still no answers for me?”
Or maybe just not the ones that you think you need?

“Why answer with more questions?” To show you what they mean.
“How am I to interpret that??” That’ll be the key.
“Clearly understanding’s key, yet I’m trapped in ambiguity!”
The key’s to find yourself; the truth’s to set you free.
“Can you spell it out for me?” In no language that you read.
“Just lay it out there please!” It won’t matter ‘til ya see.
“I know less than when I started.” You’ll know more once you cease.
“How long can I ask the same question?” Until you answer it for me.

“HERE WE GO AGAIN!!” Here you go again.
“Why would ‘I’ go here again?” To hear it all again.
“Well this time, can you say it clear?” That depends on how you hear.
“You’re confusing with your words!” You confuse them with your ears.
“This is all one big cycle.” I’m glad you’re seeing it show.
“I think we’re digressing.” I think you’re beginning to grow.
“I think ya don’t know what I think.” You think you think all that you know.
“Your answers breed more questions” Your questions breed both.

“AND HERE WE GO AGAIN‼” And here you go again.
“I don’t see where this is going,” you don’t see where this has been.
“I’ve become a better person, and I never looked back…
But I looked forward for the answers”…And you never looked back.
“How many questions do I have?” Since you ask, you’re down to nine.
“You even counted that!” Those with less often use it all more wise.

“Where will this end??” That would be the start.
“I’m getting lost again…” Try following your heart.
“Just enlighten me; please, all I need’s a little spark!”
If you want to see the light, you need to start out in the dark.
“Can’t you just point me to the grail or philosophers stone?”
I can, and I have, by simply pointing you back home.
“I don’t see how you’re helping!” That doesn’t mean you won’t.
“I just REALLY wanna know!” Are you really sure you don’t?

“Well if you’re the source of truth, why do you keep me guessin?”
Because it isn’t learned until discerned by the source of the question.
“I turn to you once more, and get turned away again!”
You turned to me, and as before, I’m turning you within.
“So why does he who helps himself even need you in the end?”
The conclusion can’t be reached until he sees where to begin.
Before then he’d only seek externally for conquering his doubt.
The outward helped him inward, now going in will help him out.
With no thoughts but their own, one can hear what’s never heard.
You will find the key alone… and then see you never were.

“So discernment is the truth?” No, that’ll be the key
“and with the key, I’ll see the truth?” You’ll perceive the tree.
“and what’s the tree lead to?” Truth. Revealed in all you see & do.
From the creative root, branching through all you’ve created too.

“Why didn’t you just say so?” It’s the cost of being free.
Those who don’t find it for themselves, find it harder to believe.
“Well, that’s 19! I got more than I could ask in a 20 question game,
so for my final question: how can I help those who seek it get the same?”

JUST GIVE THEM 20 QUESTIONS! Then listen to them speak!
How you learned how to learn is how I’d teach you how to teach.
Because every soul speaks different, their language is unique.
But each one has a key; customized for them, tailor-made by me.
If you gave them the key — then that is NOT what it would be!
Why would it be given when they’ve got it within reach?
They’ll care little what you know, ‘til they perceive it on their own;
They’ll ignore how big you are, but they’ll respond to how you’ve grown.
So for those so focused on the finish they begin straying off the road,
Share with them where ya been, and it may show them where to go.
For while there are many different paths, there is only one summit.
The key to life is love…
…but that’s not what it’d be if I took the choice from it.

Universe You: Positive Relationships (Part 2a)


What is the secret to creating & maintaining a positive, long-lasting, relationship?

All of us long for “connection”.  It is our relationships, THE connectivity, which gives meaning to our experiences and validates our existence. Some of us even strive to connect based on a perceived lack of connection!

The Science of Positivity Loophole!


The Science of Positivity

This short video just may change the way you view life, forever.  If all you have time for today is 20 seconds to dedicate to understanding the loopholes on life – give it to this video. After 20 seconds, I am certain you will find a way to free up an additional 3 minutes to finish it.

Do you believe in Science? Do you have faith in faith?  If we are honest with ourselves, most seek their alignment (even unknowingly).  Science & Faith are not so different, friends.  In fact, the two “disciplines” dedicate themselves to understanding the exact same book. The only difference is the order in which they pursue their understanding of the storyline in this ‘book of life’.

Science & Faith have never, in our history, been so close to converging! Let’s explore our faith in science & the science of faith. Continue reading

Fearlessness


Overcoming Fear… from 2012 to NOW!

A time for courage

At this point the majority of us have ‘heard’ about the notion of 2012.  No concepts win the populous over better than when those concepts are grounded in some degree of science, personal faith, and ancient allusion.

The idea could stem from the ancient Mayan ‘time keeping’ system which appears to end (and/or start over) in 2012; or they may be grounded in the prophecies from any one religion which almost uncannily seem to converge once we strip away our ‘man-made’ differences.

Independent of where the notion of the world ‘ending’ or ‘changing’ stems from – those notions are just seeds which do not grow until we allow them to root in ourselves.

No matter where the ‘events of today’ are leading – YOU ARE IN CONTROL (and thus, WE are in control).  It’s time for us as individuals, and as a globalized society, to change how we internalize these notions — and if nothing else, 2012 should mark the time we become FEARLESS! Continue reading

The God Question


God is the Answer, is he the Question?

Is God the Question…or Answer?

“Is there a God?”, “Was he an ‘invented’ by humanity”, “If he exists, what is he like?”

To play ‘devil’s advocate’ (pun intended) riddle me this:

If you knew the answer what, if anything, would you change about yourself?

So you’re looking for the answer to the “God Question”, huh?  Lucky for you, the answer is readily available in the place you least suspect. Continue reading

“Redemption Song” Loophole


Since the day we were born – we’ve had the answers to, and the loopholes on, life readily available for us.

They have been bestowed upon us through EVERY generation, and their words tend to transcend both space & time.

The message has always been clear.  The message has been delicately carved into cave walls, thoroughly crystalized through parable & poem, and carefully captured through lyricism & music. Not to mention the diligent documentation of the Bible (#1 best-seller, one hundred and four thousand weeks strong, take that New York Times!).

But how do we receive this message for ourselves, overcome the mental manipulation that pollutes our society, and change both ourselves and the world for the better?  Continue reading

Help Wanted! For Giving Forgiveness


Forgiveness is not easy – but it is MUCH easier when first asked for it. Forgiving someone after being asked for it is important – but it still leaves room for personal validation of our egos to say “see, I was right after all, so now that you acknowledge it, okay – I forgive you.”

Help Wanted! If you were hurt long ago in the past, or in a small way today, close your eyes, take a deep breath, breathe out slowly and forgive the individual by name (and/or by face).  The world is more connected than we think.  There is more power to forgiveness, especially when the individuals ‘know not what they do’.

Few gifts worth giving rival proactive forgiveness — it will make the forgiven, the forgiver, and the world, better.
