Is it important to reflect on the 'Big Questions' of life?


What is your experience with reflecting on questions such as 'What do I really believe, and why?', 'What are my values?', 'Who am I, really?' or 'Why am I here?' Has it made a difference to you, as it did for me when as a result of honest reflecting I shifted my worldview to one that is more authentic and Self-empowering (in my experience)?

    Olde Cashmere, would you help me understand? Are you saying you wish you had never started to ponder? Or that you would ponder ahead if you had a choice to 'do it over again'? Would you be up for forum discussion, on HP or elsewhere?

    Yes, that is so. As jaydene wrote above, the one thing we all have in common is that we will die, and what we do with our time until then is up to each of us. Would you be up for forum discussion, here or elsewhere?

    Very interesting, jaydene. I had not considered the differences between how it is for introverts and extraverts, nor that the more questions the less answers. Would you be up for more extended dialogue along the lines of your road's fork, in a forum?
