Michael Bernard Beckwith says,
Behind every problem, there’s a question trying to ask itself. Behind every question, there’s an answer trying to reveal itself. Behind every answer, there’s an action trying to take place. And behind every action, there’s a way of life trying to be born.
How does a problem have the power to lead you to “a way of life trying to be born”? The power lies in the kind of questions we ask.
Are you asking disempowering questions that seek answers in control, blame, and judgement, of self and others? How do we open up to empowering questions that seek answers in surrender, listening, and engagement?
In a culture of blame and finger pointing it’s hard to face the truth about problems. Problems are not the problem. We are the problem.
But in that discomforting reality also lies the truth that if we are part of the problem we are part of the solution, the very means by which “a way of life trying to be born” comes into existence.
Join me in this podcast episode as we explore the reality behind every problem, discuss the difference between empowering and disempowering questions, and discover that the source of our problems is also where we find the raw material for the solution.
