Sometimes we spend our time going places, seeing things not for the sake of experiencing it; instead for the desire to be seen on some form of Social Media.
The quote above is so fitting for the time we are in right now. Climb not so you can tell the world you made the climb, rather so you can see the world from an entirely different perspective.
A star filled sky on a summer night far away from the city can cause you to lose track of time just looking up at it's beauty and wondering, what is out there. Lightening flashes across the sky followed by thunder can send our hearts racing. The sky painted with color to close out a day or welcome a new one can make us pause and just become the witness.
There is a quote by E.C. Cummings, "Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight, or any experience that reveals the human spirit."
When I acknowledged I am a students of life, constantly learning, adjusting and growing I am able tear down my need to defend my position and instead become truly curious.
There is a quote by someone which states there is either "NO POINT OF VIEW" or "ALL POINTS OF VIEW"
We could all be curious together. Seek to listen to understand, look for the goodness in others and experience all the beauty that still surrounds us. Even in the chaos.
Every day take time to witness your day, your life. Seek to hear to listen to understand. Be curious about different points of view.
Are you still curious? How do you show your curiosity?
