Pablo Neruda's Book of Questions contains 316 questions. It makes no assertions and draws no conclusions.


Tell me, is the rose naked
or is that her only dress?

Why do trees conceal
the splendor of their roots?

Who hears the regrets
of the thieving automobile?

Is there anything in the world sadder
than a train standing in the rain? 
                         - Pablo Neruda

Answer Neruda's questions with a freewheeling mind. 

Consider these additional questions without adding conclusions. Delve into their possibilities.

What is the most important thing you have never done?

How could you play a joke on your fears?

Which experiences have made you real to yourself?

Could you give up a good old habit in order to attract a great new habit?

What's the new feeling you want to feel more than any other in the next three years?

What inspires you to feel joy in life?

Keep pushing into the questions for additional insights.  Make no conclusions.
