Can you leave behind every false way?
What will make you commit?
Do you reject negativity?
What do you give your approval to?
How can a better thought
make a difference?
How are you contributing to the
reparation of the world?
Do you feast on what you did not plant?
Where do you place your faith?
What is the bedrock foundation

When is the right time to bless?
Do you routinely expect good?
Are you listening to what

How authentic are your responses?
Can you laugh at your mistakes?
What kind of power satisfies you?
Where do you go for solace?
How well do you emphasize

How do you resolve quandaries?
Why are you so absolutely wonderful?
What are your best
qualities and attributes?

What do you swear allegiance to?
Who do you really want to be?
How can you practice resurrection today?
