As always, don’t treat these questions like “homework” or try to answer every single one. Instead, make time to meditate and reflect on the list and pick a single question that speaks to you. Which question captures the call of your inner voice? Which one contains “your work”? What is it trying to get you to notice? Where is it trying to lead you? – When were you first invited into a circle that helped you feel whole? How does that story still direct you today? – Is wholeness for you a solitary or relational journey? – When did you first discover that repairing the world is one of the best ways to put yourself back together? – In what space or place do you feel most whole? How often do you spend time there? – Wholeness does not mean perfection. Who helped you with the work of embracing brokenness, rather than trying to fix or hide it? How have you passed on that lesson? Does someone in your life need that lesson now? – How has your understanding of wholeness changed with age? – What was your proudest moment of maintaining and standing up for your wholeness? – Masks hide our wholeness, but sometimes they keep it safe. Has that ever been true for you? – When was the last time you felt “most me”? Did you promise yourself anything in that moment? Did you tell yourself something to never forget? – Has empathy ever been a doorway to wholeness for you? – What if it’s about belonging and not about becoming? What if wholeness is a matter of noticing we’ve already arrived? – What’s your question? Your question may not be listed above. If the above questions don’t include what life is asking from you, spend the month listening to your days to hear it.
