Part 2: Preparing the Way

When you feel ready, again read through all the questions listed in Part 1 (reprinted below) at a leisurely pace. Don't try to think of what your answers might be. Just see what your mind comes up with. Jot down some notes if you wish.

  1. What is the world? Does it really exist like I see it, or is it 'all in my head'?

  2. How did the world come into being?

  3. How did life, including human life, come about?

  4. What is the meaning of life, including my life? Does it have a purpose? If so, what is that purpose?

  5. What kind of person do I want to be? What does it mean, for me, to be a good person? And what, for me, is right and wrong?

  6. What sort of relationship do I have with myself? How should I treat myself? Am I a worthy person? Do I value myself? Where, for me, does happiness lie?

  7. What happens to me when I die? Is there an afterlife? Will I ever see again the people I knew who have died and those who will eventually die?


Don't proceed to Part 3: Setting Off just yet. Let your thoughts and ideas 'incubate' first. Only then move on.
