What is an Impossible Question?

In every area of life we meet a mystery, a disjunction between the way things are now and how they should be. There is a conflict between our limited knowledge, our weak nature, our poorly formed social institutions, and our higher nature and our highest vision. This conflict is a good thing. It is an opportunity to step off the treadmill and reimagine our entire approach.

Solving the problem intellectually or through some kind of social plan will not help much. Instead, focus your attention on the intractable enigma.

Join us in entering into the mystery of this impossible, beautiful question. If you ask the question fully, with all your will, and with good will, an answer will appear – one that challenges our assumptions and reconceives our humanity.

“The question is the beginning of all thinking. In knowing how to ask the right question lies the only hope of arriving at an answer.” Abraham Heschel, Man Is Not Alone 

“We never put the impossible question – we are always putting the question of what is possible. If you put an impossible question, your mind then has to find the answer in terms of the impossible – not of what is possible. It was impossible to go to the moon… If you put it with tremendous earnestness, with seriousness, with passion, you’ll find out. But if you say, ‘Oh, it is possible,’ then you are stuck.” J. Krishnamurti, The Impossible Question

Join others in your community in building Visionary health
Treat patients as human beings entrusted to your care, not just as clients. Take the health of the whole human being, the community, and the social, political, economic and natural environment into account. Address causes of illness in addition to symptoms. Health care is not just the dispensing of services, not treating patients as consumers. The profit motive should never be primary. Make prices are reasonable, affordable and based on actual costs.
