8 Holy QUESTIONS for a Simchat Chochmah

            What is your soul purpose, your life’s Divine mission?  How do you live this purpose?
            How do you reveal your expression of your soul’s celebration of life?
            What are the fruits of your life time, and have you harvested them?
            What have you learned and shared in life to leave as your legacy?
            Knowing you are created in the Divine image, what are the spiritual blesSings you give to others?
            What work are you beginning and nourishing for your Sage-ing ‘seed’ dream?
            As an Elder, how can you manifest your Joy of Wisdom, your gifts, in our world?
            How do you connect to the highest and deepest spiritual potential within your soul?

I bless you, as I bless myself, to pull off any boulder from your well-spring of joy, and go to joy.
