A Curious Case of Life: Paving the Beginner’s Path

Are you finding that answer to life, or would questions of life help you find yourself?

“We ask questions to reconnect us with our capacity for amazement, to challenge our usual explanations, and to restore our ‘active ignorance’.” — Julio Olalla (my coach guru)

Below is a virtual (and expanding) storehouse of my curiosity, of awe and wonder, of questions for no one and everyone. Random. Relative. Raptured. Restorative. Treading the Beginner’s Path towards wisdom. Yet living this mystery of life wholeheartedly.

  1. What is the real history of the world?

  16. Should life be fair?
  17. How did we allow the world to be controlled so formidably by the 1%?
  18. Why do people assume that I have a lot of money just because I could quit a well-paying job with a big title — at my will?
