...our spaceship for discovery...

Posted by 64bowtie on December 4, 2004, at 14:17:48


We can't be curious in the foreground, and be in anxiety/panic at the same time.

We can't be curious in the foreground, and have an OCD event at the same time.

We can't be curious in the foreground, and have a Major Depressive Episode at the same time.

We can't be curious in the foreground, and be grumbling, griping, gossipping and complaining about [nouns] => people, places, things, ideas.

We can, however, use out-of-body guided imagery in the background, and watch ourselves do these things in the foreground. My Mom died at age 72 not knowing this fact!

Curiosity is an emotion. Curiosity is the only emotion that can't be extiguished from the outside, or by other people. Only we can turn off our own curiosity.

Curiosity inevitably leads to discovery and gets stronger with practice.

Since what we don't even know, that we don't even know, and can't even guess at, is almost everything in the universe, being curious can be our "spaceship" for discovery of the new [nouns].

What we need to use to fix ourselves, is out there somewhere, if, and only if, we remain curious...


PS: Denial-and-indecision-together are sins against the self, portrayed as certainty. Caution: certainty does not always mean denial and indecision caused it. Denial-and-indecision-together, do seem always to be veiled in an air of certainty, though. Additional caution: Certainty..... isn't! ...and certainty flys in the face of our curiosity
