Whether we are aware of it or not, we’re always answering "a question" in life by the way we make decisions, interpret events, and interact with others. Without mindfulness, the question is almost always fear-based and related to survival. But is that really the question we want to be asking and responding to, consciously or unconsciously, much or most of the time?
