SPIRITUAL

www.theglobalconversation.com Contribute to a global conversation about how we can positively change the world.

 

1. How is it possible for 6.9 billion people to all say they want the same thing—survival,
safety, security, peace, prosperity, opportunity, happiness, and love—and to be
unable to get it, even after trying for thousands of years?

 

2. Is it possible that there is something we don’t fully understand
about Life, the understanding of which would change everything?

 

3. Is it possible that there is something we don’t understand about
ourselves and about who we are, the understanding of which would alter our
lives forever for the better?
