Is my happiness dependent on other people around me?
Have we lost the art of dialogue, the art of exchanging ideas and viewpoints? It seems that instead of wishing to participate in an exchange, we are seeking to change other viewpoints. Have we become attached to being right? Or maybe we don't like being wrong? In my psychotherapy practice, I often get to hear couples talking. Each person becomes defensive about their ideas and thoughts and their general outlook on life. They are not seeking to understand, they just want the other person to know that they are in the wrong. How can we learn to experience the wonder of a true exchange of viewpoints, life experiences and reflections? Where the act of giving and receiving are inclusive, where there is no right or wrong, but just is. For in this ‘just is’ place, insights and things we didn’t see before, will naturally come to light.
The power of the question. Because "Right" is subjective - what we're actually looking for is guidance; guidance which we viscerally know is right for ourselves.
This is Quest. A space to explore personal or each other’s questions while abandoning the need to find answers; where the act of giving and receiving implores our imagination and we enter a place of wonderment. It's an art of questioning and suspending the need to pursue an answer. It is an art because it requires consideration and contemplation. It requires you to search for the most fitting words as you form a responsive question. This requires articulation and engaging with your imagination.
