Oprah says in order to experience life, you’ve got to start asking life’s big questions. Each person on earth is charting their own spiritual course. Your soul is as unique as your fingerprint. And the journey to connect to the deepest part of yourself can only be explored by you. As long as you’re asking the right questions, the answers will readily reveal themselves.

R. Bernard, Shaka Senghor, Cheryl Strayed, Tracy Morgan, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Timothy Shriver, Louis Schwartzberg and Gretchen Rubin.
