Questions That Conquer World Hunger
Lynne Twist, in her beloved book, The Soul of Money, writes:
“When you know with certainty that things can be, not just different but, entirely resolved, you engage in the work in a more fundamental way. You don’t wonder “if”. You determine “how to”. You look at root causes. You make different choices”.
These are the questions that she says she used in her work with the Hunger Project, the organization that just doesn’t accept making the problem better, but is committed to solving the problem completely:
“Who do I need to be to fulfill on the commitment I’ve made”?
“What kind of human being do I need to forge myself into to make this happen”?
“What resources do I need to be willing to bring to bear in myself and my colleagues and in my world”?
Thank you Lynne, for those brilliant, connecting questions!
Interestingly, none of those questions are “what should I do” questions. Lynne goes on to claim that you simply can’t fail if you live from the space of those “being” questions.
Ending World Hunger is a larger than usual undertaking, would you not agree? So what larger undertaking is alive in your world? And what might happen as you consider Lynn’s questions in regard to your own undertaking?
I’d love to hear about your dreams and what begins to show up as you hold these questions for yourself in your own life.
