Our world is usually as big as the task at hand, being stuck on a linear level of thinking. For example, at work we are so buried in the nature of the work we are doing that we cannot seem to think of anything else that may be happening in the world. Another great example is when we are at home doing household chores and/or caring for our young ones, again, our world is as big as the house we are in.
Furthermore, when we have completed our duties and have put our kids down for rest, we most often resort to television or social media and get bogged down to the same linear level of thinking.
In most cases than not, we are unable to set aside the time to explore the possibilities of the universe at a higher level of thinking and thus create curiosity.
Albert Einstein states “The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.”
Set aside some time and give your mind the opportunity to explore new ideas and to contemplate on the greatness of our existence.
To want to change is to be curious and to be curious is to be open to possibilities.
