The Four Fundamental Questions of Life

Topics: , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • These days I tell everyone that I can to do whatever it takes to make sure that they are not among the 98% of people who spend 98% of their time on the 98% of things in life that don’t matter.

    Until way too late in my life, I included myself in that group. Now I make sure that everything I think, say, and do is directly related to the Agenda of my Soul—which has nothing to do specifically with the desires of my body or the insatiable and usually non-beneficial activities of my mind.

    I have chosen in these last years of my life to build my experience around the two most important messages that I received in Conversations with God. One was the statement, “Your life is not about you,” and the other was the Four Fundamental Questions of Life:

    1. Who am I?
    2. Where am I?
    3. Why am I where I am?
    4. What do I intend to do about that?

    Answering these questions every morning has helped me to create a life that matters to my soul.

    So if this were my last day on earth and I had only one I thing that I could say to another, I would say, “Fight to remember, amidst the hectic activity of every day life, fight to remember Who You Really Are—an Aspect of Divinity and an Individuation of God. Struggle to remind yourself at every turn that where you are is a place in the Kingdom of God known as the Realm of the Physical, and that you are here for the very specific purpose of using its environment of Relativity as a magnificent tool with which to provide God with an opportunity to know Itself experientially, through you. And always remember, ‘Your life is not about you.’ It is about everyone whose life you touch. And it is about how you touch them.”

    I would also remind all of my beloveds and anyone else who would listen that We Are All One; that all things are one thing. There is only One thing, and all things are part of the One Thing There Is.

    I would make sure that everyone understood that they have a Soul; that they are not their body, but that their body is merely something they have; like a tool, with which to create experience.

    I would tell them, as well, that they are not their mind, but that their mind is likewise simply a tool. Then I would tell them that they are not even their Soul, but that their Soul is part of the Three-Part Being that they really are—a singularization of The Singularity known as God, and that it has come to earth in order that Divinity Itself may be expressed in human form, through them, in them, as them.

    Finally, I would tell every person that no matter what else they imagine in this world of Illusion, the truth is that Love Is All There Is.

      I Love this inspiration, and you to Neale, for inspiring me. I just left a comment on yesterdays inspiation, because it hit home with me. No diffence then this one. I don’t say the 47and question every day, but most days. I have done a lot of work on myself in the past, that discovered who I thought I was, to be the person I am today. Like you said, it’s not about me today, it’s about who I can help, and do it spiritually.

      BRAVO! Thank you so much 🙂 I have recently taken hold of a new lease on life, through may faith and belief in God…Basically, I chose to say, “YES! I’ll take that life, and all that You have waiting for me!” I was exhausted from NOT living the life He says I should be living, and chose to take a leap of faith, and receive it. My life, from that pivotal decision point, has changed dramatically. I thank God every day. You, Mr. Walsch, have encouraged and inspired me. Your words epitomize my new life and state of mind. Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart! 🙂
