DID CURIOSITY REALLY KILL THE CAT?
I don't know about you but if not for curiosity this would be a much more drab and unexciting life as far as I'm concerned. I think most of us are curious by nature but oft times we tend to hide that curiosity for fear that we may "look" silly or uninformed. When I was a child just about everything raised my curiosity but I know that even then I was fearful of expressing that to others lest it made me look ignorant.But thankfully I have manage to hang on to that curiosity thur adulthood and at long last Im no longer "afraid" to show my "ignorance" by asking why. Dont expect me to just blindly accept anything as "true" until I have satisified my curiosity as to why it is true.I think I may at last know what Jesus meant when he said that for one to enter the Kingdom of Heaven they must first become again as little children. I hope you can recall all those things that ignited your own curiosity when you were a child.And even more so I hope you still have that "childlike" curiosity when it comes to everything.I would like to share with you the following statement from Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev: "If you destroy "I do not know" you destroy all possibilities of knowing." I love that statement dont you? I truly believe that in order for me or anyone else to comprehend the meaning of this life it is utterly important to always ask yourself questions as to "why" instead of just believing anything just because someone else says it is so. In closing I want to share another quote which comes from the Science of Mind Textbook:Peace is the power at the heart of God. It is through the revelation of the self, to the self, that one understands life. Please reread that once again and just let it soak in til you realize exactly what it says to you. I now leave you in peace, in love, in joy, in friendship, and in curiosity.
