As we tell the stories of our lives that matter most to us, we come to know ourselves more deeply, we sense a connection to more things around us, we feel more empathic toward all things, and we take on a greater responsibility to contribute to the betterment of the whole.
With your deeper understanding of the world we are living in, what do you sense as a guiding story that most characterizes the time we are living in now? What principles or underlying forces seem to be directing where we are headed? What experiences, realizations, or confirmations have you had in your own life that give a sense of purpose and meaning to all the things happening in the world today? In the familiar three-part pattern (beginning, muddle, and resolution) what is your version of the story of our time?
