What would you ask?

Card 10

I often find myself posing ‘what if . . . ‘ questions. If given the chance, what one question would you ask of Divinity? In my late 20’s when taking my first introduction to kabbalah class, we were asked this question. After much thought, I knew I would like to understand the balance of masculine and feminine energies within us and in the world at large. Now, as I reflect back over the past 40 years, I realize that this question set me on an ongoing quest that would engage my mind and soul for the rest of my life and would ultimately drive much of my creative life.

Why that question at that time? I have no idea but I do recall being asked the question and formulating the answer. It reminds us of the adage: Be careful what you wish for. Now, as I look back, I wonder whether posing the question was creating a self-fulfilling prophecy or, in a meditative and intuitive moment, did I pick up a thread of the predestined life my soul had chosen and to which I was to be committed.

If given the opportunity today to ask one question of the Creator of All Life, what would you ask?
