These were still some unanswered questions that I was asked at the recently concluded retreat, so I will attempt to answer them here.
The list of questions was:
02:27 Could you please give us a definition of the word “spiritual”, as you have mentioned trees/nature is not spiritual, but they do contain life force and for many people that is the same life force or “spirit” that we experience as humans.
10:31 What are your thoughts on movement and good nutrition being linked to our ability to connect deeper to our spiritual nature? If we eat crap does impact this connection?
16:09 What is the most important thing I can do in my life to develop spiritually?
18:14 How to find purpose?
23:50 A friend of mine said to me; “Where do we get our thoughts from?” “It’s the key to cultivating other things.” What do you think?
32:11 What is the purpose of romantic relationships/partnerships?
38:10 How do we move from complete self-centeredness/selfishness into greater selflessness whilst maintaining balance and having healthy boundaries?
42:35 Do you believe we are reincarnated? If so can you explain more? When we go after we die? (Some links to a more in-depth look at this subject. – “The Ins and Outs of Reincarnation” “Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?” “Purpose, Reincarnation, and Suffering – an online Q&A session.”
45:23 Our current society is grooming us to be more isolated. How do we encourage unity every day?
48:02 I really want to change my heart but I don’t have the strength and I don’t know how?
