Usually something to learn about.
Curiosity invites me to read about near-death experiences, watch documentaries and take courses on the science of the universe’s evolution, learn to be better at loving and forgiving others, investigate philosophical questions I wrestle with, and to travel.
Maybe you would like to read dreaming books by Robert Moss
There have been a few questions rumbling around lately – not that I have discussed them with anyone. What does it mean to be spiritual? Is a spiritual person a good person? Can good people not be spiritual? Is spirituality in the domain of inner dimensions only or can physical things be spiritual? Is there an absolute perspective or is everything relative? Does being spiritual affect my outward behaviour? And the point of these questions is? They help me walk around this paddock to encourage a broader view of what truly is.
Whether we know it or not, people exist simultaneously on multiple levels of consciousness (i.e.”reality”) – physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and probably a few others we don’t even have access to, yet) Rocks and stuff have a level of consciousness (objects are symbolic), plants. have a level of consciousness, animals occupy. yet, another. I am aware of my spiritual existence but am, by no means, a “good” person.
Do we have consciousness, or are we consciousness? Does a plant have consciousness, or is it an expression of consciousness. If I have consciousness, what makes me know that I am conscious, and who am I ? I f I am consciousness, then body and the psychomental apparatus are appearances in consciousness. If i am different from consciousness what is the relation between consciousness and me. I would be aware of my consciousness. What is it then that makes me aware of my consciousness? It is something that is conscious. The one who is aware of and that of which he is aware of appear in awareness isn‘t it ? So to me , in reality there is no question of spiritual or not spiritual. But on a practical level the concept of discriminating between spiritual and not spiritual will lead us beyond this same concept and give us the experience of this oneness.. but this is only my poor few as a beginner on the spiritual „path“ 🙏
How does ink at various dilutions look when applied to wet and dry paper.
It invites me to be creative and think outside the box.
I don‘t know if it is curiosity alone. But I watch myself more and more tending to follow an inner voice offering a relaxed, peaceful state behind thoughts
My path wherever it takes me and wherever I’m called. Indeed I have ample curiosity but sometimes not enough energy and discernment.
My first thought: “Far too many links and that’s why all those tabs are open waiting for me to read them.” More seriously, with the web at my fingertips if I wonder about something I can learn a bit about it in the moment. What would have been a trip to the basement in my parents’ house to look in the Encyclopedia Britannica when I was a kid becomes a serendipitous path of new facts, ideas, and voices.
I am curious about almost everything, but as of the last couple of years, this has turned inwards and I wonder and ask questions about my own life.
Whatever is pulling me in that moment in my heart or in my head.
I would love, for a very long time, to see a raven in real life. They exist in the Netherlands, but unfortunately my eyes haven’t had the pleasure yet. Now I think that I can of course put more effort into that. Find out and see if they are reported on a bird watching website.
I hope you get to see one soon! I feel the same about the Painted Bunting. I know they’re around; I just haven’t had the fortune to see one myself!
wow, that little birdie should represent LGBT, lol so colorful and beautiful:) Apparently they migrate and arrive to central/south Florida in early October, I’m gonna keep a look out for this beauty:)
They really are so bright and beautiful! One day I’m gonna see one in person, I just know it!
And they are definitely the perfect little birdie for LGBT 🙂
The Painted Bunting…..what a beautiful bird, WOW. I didn’t know it existed. I hope you get to see one, Sunnypatty.🐦
the possibility of satisfying desires
I’m always intrigued by side trails not on a map when I’m hiking. There are so many, and it’s a thrill to not know exactly where I’m going (but I track my hikes so I can find my way home).
It invites me to explore my inner landscape, to see if old trails still bear fruit and to discover new territory that might provide new insights.
I referred to my curiosity the other day in reference to my doubt. My curiosity is rooted in a lack of complacency. It triggers a sense of wonder. Wonder can be magical. It fosters a desire to draw new maps. Much is said about life long learning, all good. I of course concur. The data, the knowledge gained, is useful, invigorating perhaps even life altering. Wonder is the fuel that ignites me. Yes, curiosity invites me to wonder. And occasionally seek to grasp dreams and beckon them into reality.
My dreams. I was too fearful to follow them in the past. And I was raised in a way that you live your life like “this” and get a job with benefits and work for a company until it’s time to retire…. yadda yadda yadda. I know now that there is life outside of a timeclock, despite the fact that I still punch one 5 days a week (6 last week!). The knowledge has led me to get in tune with my inner Self, and that’s why I’m in a Yoga Teacher Training so I can eventually teach and share my love of all things yoga!
I want to mention that there’s nothing wrong with punching a clock for work… some people really enjoy that path, and I appreciate mine even if I plan to change it!
Curiosity invites me to follow the unknown…..full of endless possibilities and opportunities.
To follow wonder and gratitude- and let go with an open mind!
Well, that would depend on what it is that I am curious about. With some things I’m curious about, it’s enough to just be curious and learn a bit more about something and then let it go. Other times, my curiosity has led me into a whole new world that changed my life in profound ways.
Curiosity invites me to learn new things or perhaps explore different places.
