Reawaken Your Curiosity
It is interesting to note the contrast between the radiant intelligence of the child and the stifled mentality of the average adult
Why is this so?
Young children it seems possess what Zen calls ‘beginner’s mind.’ They are awed and fascinated with the wonder of the world, open to discovering and experiencing new things. Anything is possible. Life is a great adventure.
For almost all of us, the systems that ‘educate’ us to be adults stifle our natural joy and curiosity. We lose touch with our innate appreciation of life. We forget how to dream.
The blessing is that with attention, patience and love, we can reawaken our sense of wonder. We can again dance with life. So let the mind once again be free, or it will die, and you with it.
