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 marvellous 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
Never lose curiosity. I think being curious keeps our mind active and our horizons open.
Having an open, active, curious mind helps us to have a generous loving heart.
The week ahead that lies ahead of me is packed to the brim with activity, to-do lists and obligations. My eldest son graduates high school this week and this means things such as speech night, valedictory dinner and last assembly… on top of the rest of my life.
I have decided to approach the week, not with worry and stress, but with curiosity.
I ask myself:
How can this week be really great?
How can I mark the significance of this occasion, for us all?
How can I ensure I don’t fall in a shattered heap at the end of the week?
As this chapter of Captain Scarlett’s life comes to end, I am really curious about where he goes from here. It is appropriate to mark the occasion, to celebrate, and also to feel a little nostalgic for my little boy that’s all grow’d up now.
I am trying to comprehend mysteries, and can only do this by being open to the experience. By not being fearful of what the future may hold.
As he looks onward and upward, I’ll hold the curiosity about his life for him. Who knows when he may need it?
Where do you need a little curiosity in your life?
