Does your life generate questions?

It is good to ask, does the way in which I am living generate questions?  Am I engaged and interested enough in the world and others around me that I approach both with a sense of curiousty and wonder, that in turns engenders questions of discovery?  And the converse, am I living my life in such a way that those who know me may on occasion ask questions about my approach to life?

Finding a spiritual life is not about developing an obvnoxiously over-the-top religous persona.  The most spiritual people I know more often live lives characterized by humility, quiet.  And that quiet, filled with an engaged view of the world as full of pregnant possibility , becomes an incredible question generator. People in that place tend to drink life in, to carry a sense of awe and wonder, as well as expressive gratitude.   In their presence, I am often tempted to ask, “You know something don’t you?”

And I certainly have found most people have one or more areas just like that listed above.  I am struck in my work with couples as we prattle on through several hours of pre-marital counseling work, that often one partner will say something that gives me pause – a statement or marverlous insight which I hear, and know at a deep level to be true.  It leads me, smiling, to the questions, “How did you come to know THAT?”

Too often formal religion is seen as a closing of dialog and open mindedness, far too concerned with funneling conversation rapidly down to one pointed answer.  Many  decry that formulaic approach to truth as doing a dis-service to God’s work in the world, work that is far more organic and awe inspiring than I care to admit. God’s life, like ours, should generate marvelous questions!    How we ask and how we answer tells us much about spiritual life.

    In a spiritual reality, nothing can be lost and therefore, nothing can be taken, but while we perceive this physical reality, the idea of losing when you give or gaining when you take, are inbred into the worlds thinking.,
