When we were as young as this toddler above, curiosity was something we practiced every day. We were open to learning. It was exciting to discover.
As adults, we have formed opinions, we have built judgements based on what we think is right and what’s wrong, and we have taken on beliefs that have been passed on to us. Our thoughts run the gamut of ways that we have used in the past to keep us safe, to remind us how best to act, and, sometimes, they are self critical. All this thinking keeps us from new possibilities, from new perceptions, and seeing anything creatively.
We have lost the art of curiosity. We are no longer open to learning. We are so satiated with all we’ve experienced and seen that we no longer look to discover.
I’m not saying that we have to start over. The point I want to make is that, maybe, there’s more. Maybe, if we were open to it, we might discover a better way to do something. Maybe, if we were more eager to discover, we would come upon something innovative that would make our lives more meaningful. Surely there must be a better way of being when we realize we’re not as happy with our life anymore.
The world is in a state of flux right now. A lot of us are questioning why there’s so much more tumult in the world today. There is a lot of change going on now.
The only way, in my opinion, to get through all this change is to begin questioning. To begin to be curious about everything that impacts us. To allow ourselves to not take everything so seriously and to open up to possibilities.
We get the choice to focus on what we want to. Choose to focus on something that excites you. Be curious. Open yourself up to discover more. Learn more about yourself and what makes you happy.
You’ll be glad you did. You’ll discover more and be led to more possibilities for your life. You’ll free yourself from the mindless chatter in your mind, and you will be happier.
More about this later. In the meantime, I invite you to ask questions and leave comments. Thank you for visiting my blog.
