Life’s Biggest Question – Where am I going and what am I doing here?

At some point in everyone’s life the question of meaning will surface. With it comes questions about the design of things, what is the purpose and meaning of our lives, who am I and what happens when earth life ends? We all wrestle with these questions at various times in our lives, no matter what our station, preference, color, gender or creed.

Although these questions can arise when we are on top of the world, they are usually asked when we come face to face with the dark side of life, or what is known as a crisis. The Chinese have a symbol for crisis that means both danger and opportunity. That is because a crisis can also be an opportunity. Within the center of any crisis lay the seed of opportunity. Finding this seed is discovering the steps to Soul Walking.

Nothing in life comes without give and take, and sacrifice. All of life moves in a transition from birth to death. In between we give and we receive both pleasure and pain.  Life has a perfect accounting system where everything gets balanced. The drama and striving of life, with all its ups and downs, always brings us back to the status quo; where are you now?  The irony of life is that all our outward striving and drama always add up to zero. We take none of them with us when we depart this world. What we do take is our experiences and how we used them to define who we have become. This is the path. This is the journey. This is where you are going and why you are here.

It is suggested that you:

Be kind, honest, content, detached (but not indifferent). Be pure, generous, moderate and devoted. These are the guidepost for the journey known as soul walking.
