According to a recent Gallup pole, an overwhelming majority (85%) of people in the United States identify themselves as having a particular religious preference.
Whether we believe or do not believe, many of us would do well to evaluate the fundamentals of why we do or do not.
Have we absorbed the ideas of those around us or have we truly gone deep to make our beliefs our own?
When you see the “spiritual” Concept Cloud in your Think Zones, in addition to brainstorming ways to incorporate your spiritual life into your plans, consider taking time to think-time some of life’s ultimate questions.
Following is a hodgepodge of a few questions to get you started.
Who am I?
Why am I here?
What is the meaning of life?
What happens after death?
If God really does exist, what does that mean for me?
It might take any one of us a lifetime to pursue these questions.
Have fun going deep as you #taketimetothinktime, and let us know how it goes.
