Definition: Curious – Eager to learn or know; inquisitive.
As I grow older my level of curiosity seems to be accelerating due to my awareness and acknowledgement that my time on this earth is limited and most of it is probably behind me, not in front of me.
A book I previously read, Primal, by Mark Batterson, has a chapter on Holy Curiosity.
Curiosity has my attention all the time.
A quote by Albert Einstein, from the book Primal, found on page ninety-five.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
I would encourage you today, or when you read this to spend the next twenty four hours working into your conversations the beginning phrase, I am curious, why did you…or how did you…or when did you…?
You will be amazed as to what you can learn.
Be curious, explore, delve deeper, ask others to explain why they did what they did when they did it.
I will leave you with additional words by Albert Einstein, one of the smartest men of our time.
He said, I have no special gift. I am only passionately curious.
