What do you say to yourself when you are struggling or feeling stuck?
I know that for me, I often ask, "What is my next best step?" but sometimes when I am so stuck in the mud and lacking perspective and lacking inspiration, that question gets me nowhere. Instead, I need to briefly look outside of me for inspiration, so that I can then come back inside of me for guidance.
That is where this powerful question comes in: "What does a spiritual leader do in __________________?" You might not yet identify yourself as a spiritual leader, but the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu are, and that is why The Book of Joy is such a powerful book to learn from, because these two can act as our guides.
What would the Dalai Lama do if he lost his job?
What would Demond Tutu do if his daughter screamed at him?
What would the Dalai Lama do when someone is angry with him?
What would you do in your most challenging situation, if you could embody the spiritual teachings of these two men?
