The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein ~
Following up on the last post here this quote by Albert Einstein above (as well as the marvelous picture!) takes us into contemplation of the juiciness of curiosity. Is curiosity not a vehicle for being in the moment?
Our lives often contrive to squish us down into survival mentality, yet what miracles there are all around us to be curious about! Einstein exemplified what he calls “holy curiosity” and never stopped learning, growing, and sharing his thoughts, reflections and wisdom with the world.
Perhaps you cry out, “there is not time to explore or be curious”. But what if you took this exact moment and looked around you. Expanded out of the tight thoughts of the mind, looked with a soft gaze, fell into your next inhale and exhale and became curious about the interconnectedness of yourself with your surroundings.
Curious about the expansiveness of this one very moment and everything that is contained within it. Allow the questions to arise and let them seduce you into exploring ever more deeply. Interact with others within this curiosity, not having to be the one to “have the right answer”. What if there isn’t a “right answer”?
What if the true journey is to arrive and arrive and arrive and arrive…at a new awareness through this holy curiosity and expansion delighting in the mystery of it all.
Since everything is always moving and changing this gives us a virtual playground of curiosity to explore! It is almost like being on that roller coaster with the monks in the last post or riding the crest of a wave! Every ride is different…… an unlimited territory to reflect upon and experience.
Are you finding your life dull and repetitive? Try on just a tad of Einstein’s “holy curiosity”!
