Leading a good life in troubled times


Maria’s Midweek Mindfulness 


The Wednesday Whisper

Finding a philosophy

Last week I wrote some questions that could help us to take stock. This week I got interested in questions that could help us participate in our world. There are many beautiful spiritual practices that can support us to question how to live a simple and good life. Some people chose to exit mainstream society and take refuge in spiritual communities. But before you admire but dismiss the idea of a monastic retreat as a way of life, it’s worth contemplating what of the essence could be incorporated into whatever life you are living.

By asking these questions deep into our soul, we can find our own responses rather than be given a list of actions to follow;

  • How can I practice generosity in a way that feels effortless?
  • How can I learn to speak from a place of love even when the message is difficult?
  • How can I choose to listen more deeply?
  • How can I become more mindful of what I consume?
  • What effort can I make to learn about the impact I make in the way I live my life?
  • How do I learn and practice true love?

Answering these questions may bring up responses that require change. So, a further question may arise:

  • How can I transition from the habits that prevent me responding to life as I would like to?

Once you get this far, what you do next can be absolutely transformative.

Practicing the Dialogue Road Map creates a consciousness that helps us apply words and shape language to questions about how we want to live. It’s all about being able to navigate, contextualise and make choices from a core of love, peace and justice.
