Episode 23 – The Fourth Fundamental Question of Life – Full Script Text


Welcome to the twenty-third episode of the Living a Dream: A Transformational Journey podcast. My name is Jo Calk. I am a Life Awareness Coach, Reiki Master, author, and speaker. Today’s episode is “The Fourth Fundamental Question of Life.” To participate on a panel to discuss the question in an open-mike call-in forum, call 646-564-9667 now.

First, I want to share my Life Purpose Statement:

“The purpose of my life is to be present, joyful, and compassionate, and to share my joy, make a difference, and be a role model to others that, by changing some of their internal beliefs and judgments, they can also make a difference in the world.”

My Ultimate Goal is the global enlightenment and peace on our Earth, our physical reality, through the awakening, awareness, and action of its people in transforming our beliefs about each other and the Earth.

I am not alone in having this Goal of “Peace on Earth,” but my approach is a bit different: I am enlightening the Earth from within.


During this podcast series, please be open to the possibility that your life can change and improve in ways unimaginable now.


This is the seventh in a series of 7 podcast episodes, in which one of seven questions is announced, followed by call-in listeners who wish to participate in an open-mike discussion of the question. The questions are called “The 7 Simple Questions” and were introduced by Neale Donald Walsch in his book, Storm Before the Calm. Mr. Walsch states, “The following inquiries, made in the depth of our own soul, and used by us to invite others into their own soul searching, could change the world.”

I, and everyone else, have been given explicit permission by Mr. Walsch to use the 7 Simple Questions in our work, to share the discussions around the questions that could change the world. I thank Neale Donald Walsch for his waiving of copyright protections for us to freely engage in the 7 Simple Questions that invite our own soul-searching.

Please call in at 646-564-9667 to discuss the following question first proposed by Neale Donald Walsch in his book, Storm Before the Calm.


The first 3 Fundamental Questions of Life

Who Am I? Where Am I? Why Am I Where I Am?


The Fourth Fundamental Question of Life (question 7 of 7):

What do I Intend to do About That?


Neale Donald Walsch’s Response:

My idea is that I intend to keep myself aware that I am engaging in the Process of God. God is a Process. You are engaged in that Process now. I have always been, and I always will be.

This is Nirvana, this is Pure Bliss. For Pure Bliss is the process of God “godding.” If people do not experience life in this way, it is because they do not Know Who They Are, Where They Are, Why They Are Where They Are, or What They Intend to Do about That.

Here in the Realm of the Physical I am producing and then living within a Contextual Field in order that Experience may occur. What Experience? The Experience I choose.

I make this choice by my co-creation of, and my response to, the Contextual Field, and my decision with regard to it. Within the Contextual Field I can React, Create, or Intend. It is up to me.

The process by which I experience what I came to physicality to experience is a process of increasing my awareness of the Process Itself.

As I become more and more aware, I move from Reaction to Creation to Intention to Expression.

The Neophyte reacts. The Student creates. The Master intends. The Divine expresses.

Life in the Realm of the Physical invites me to Know, and to Know That I Know. It invites me to Master the Moment. I can do this by moving into each moment deciding ahead of time what I Intend to Express.

God is a Process.

You are engaged in that Process now.

What do I intend to do about that?

I am inviting myself not to live my life as an experience of reaction, nor even as an experience of creation, but as an experience of intention, producing the expression of Divinity. This is what I call fulfillment.

In truth I cannot create anything, because everything has already been created. I am wasting my time trying to create something. That’s child’s play.

When I am trying to create peace, security, opportunity, prosperity, happiness, and love, I am in the sandbox, playing with toys. I did not come here for that. I came here to experience my Self as Who I Really Am; to express through me, as me, an aspect of Divinity—and to re-create myself anew in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever I held about Who I Am.

When I do that, all those other things I was trying to produce in my life come to me without effort.

End of Neale Donald Walsch text.


My response to: What Do I Intend to Do About That? I intend to remember that I am Source in a body-suit and that this “reality” is actually a waking dream that I can change. I visualize myself on the Love-Based Earth, without fear, without war, without competition. I remain in my joy and respond to all events with love. I share my joy and love with others. I am eager for the new contrasts and to make my choices based on my preferences, knowing that there is no right or wrong choice. I awaken each day to the new possibilities for extraordinary experiences, laughter, love, and joy. I draw my abundance and all my preferences to me effortlessly. I meet new people, many who quickly become new friends. I share my unique abilities with others, for the mutual benefit of all. My life is joyous, free, and fulfilling. There is nothing I lack or need. This is truly Heaven on Earth.

Some thoughts and concepts we have discussed in previous podcasts that relate to this question:

  • We are ONE as Source. We ARE Source
  • We are Pure Source Energy having a physical experience on Playground Earth, wearing body-suits to gain the full sensation of physicality
  • Our Soul extends out forever, joining with other Souls as the ONE Soul of Source. We are freed from the belief of being separate, isolated, physical beings, apart from Source.
  • We were all “born” with gifts of love, joy, and positive self-attributes. We still have those gifts, which may be buried under other people’s beliefs, opinions, attitudes, and thoughts that we accepted as our own
  • Happiness is within you, you need not search for it elsewhere
  • All people are equal and unique
  • They aren’t “for” us, they aren’t “against” us, They ARE Us
  • Other people are reflections of ourselves
  • We always have choices. We can choose fear, or we can choose love. We have preferences, not judgments. We have preferences, not prejudices. We teach only love as our “go-to” response to all events. We change our viewpoint: We see the world as we want it to be – not as we think it is now.
  • We are in a waking dream, believing what we are seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, and tasting are solid, visible, and real. We are awakening from this dream of believing we are separate physical beings in a separate physical world


Let’s look at this week’s tools, activities, and summary:


  1. Be open to the possibility that your life can change and improve in ways unimaginable now.
  2. We Are All ONE as Source – we are all Pure Energy wearing a body-suit for our adventure in physicality on Playground Earth.
  3. Replace fear with love, knowing that we are all Source.
  4. Visualize yourself living on the new Love-Based Earth. Share your joy and happiness with everyone you meet. Remember that there is nothing to fear here. Experience contrasts, choose your preferred path, and enjoy the manifestations as they come to you easily.
  5. By changing within, we become the change in the world.
  6. We are all part of The Global Shift in Consciousness that is occurring now.



* Completely rearrange your thinking about this place called Earth. Begin to experience life “on earth as it is in heaven.” That is, as if this were a paradise.

* In order to do this, you would have to rearrange your thinking about Who You Are and about How Life Works. You would have to adopt a new perspective—the perspective of the soul, on why things are happening the way they are happening, what the purpose of every event is, and how we can put those events to that purpose in a meaningful way.

* Make a list of conditions, experiences, and circumstances that have existed or now exist in your life that create a context allowing you to experience who you are by presenting you with who and what you are not. Bless those experiences and circumstances and forgive yourself for ever having been them wrong, or not okay with you (if, in fact, you ever did). Embrace them now in your heart as the gifts that each of them were and are.

My Suggested Activities:

  1. Envision the Earth as a giant Playground in which we all play as Pure Energy Beings having a physical experience. See yourself floating easily and calmly along the River of Life.
  2. Imagine no longer living in fear. Imagine seeing everyone AS US. Imagine being calm, knowing we are Source Energy in a body-suit of our own creation, in a love-based Playground Earth of our own creation, within the multiple Universes of Source’s creation.
  3. Think about what changes a love-based world provides. What do you love doing, that brings you joy and is of service to others? How does the world appear, when everything and everyone are viewed from love, instead of fear?



* There are three realms in the Kingdom of God.

* We are now in the Realm of the Physical.

* We are not here to learn anything, or to be tested.

* We are here to experience any aspect of Divinity that we wish. That is what makes this a paradise.

* You cannot experience What You Are except in the presence of What You Are Not.

* God is a process, and you are part of that process right now.

My Summary:

  1. We must awaken from the dream that we are victims of this world. We created this world from love and joy; we can return this world to love and joy when we remember we are all ONE as Source.
  2. To change the world, we change our beliefs, attitudes, thoughts, actions, and reactions from within ourselves, as Pure Source Energy surrounding a body-suit.
  3. Replace fear with love in every situation.
  4. Visualize yourself living on the new Love-Based Earth. Share your joy and happiness with everyone you meet. Remember that there is nothing to fear here. Experience contrasts, choose your preferred path, and enjoy the manifestations as they come to you easily.
  5. The Global Shift to Peace on Earth is occurring now; we are choosing to take part in the Transformation.
