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

Friendshape your Friendships
Faithfulness
Never give up on a relationship. It should not come to an end because of changed interests, accidents, betrayal, or forgetfulness. All personal bonds are permanent.
Help anyone in need who is sensitive to life
Understand their external and internal situation. Seek what is deepest, best, and sacred in them. Help each other think and see clearly and courageously. Invite them to join us along this path.
Friendshape your friendships
Although a friendship may have formed for any reason, deepen it by: Coming to terms with unresolved issues; sharing what is important in your life; request and give help with things you need and believe in; decide on a joint action; and say goodbye when appropriate.
Bind your fate to anyone able and willing to form true relationship
We are deeply and permanently connected with each other: giving our hearts to each other and taking our journey together.
