At the Center we regularly engage in an exercise called "the reflection process". This involves dropping a question into our consciousness as if we were dropping a pebble into a pool of water and then seeing what bubbles up. The following quotation illuminates how powerful this process can be:

A very powerful question may not have an answer at the moment it is asked. It will sit rattling in the mind for days or weeks as the person works on an answer. If the seed is planted, the answer will grow. Questions are alive.

    I miss your process questions and your teaching dear Sister. Perhaps you would give an example of one on your blog?
