“Curiosity killed the cat, but the satisfaction brought him back.” -Eugene O’Neil
Wisdom is born out of our willingness to make love to the tension that accompanies our unanswered questions.
The initial sense of disorientation that results when our pre-existing beliefs and pre-packaged ideologies fail us is the precursor to an awareness of new paradigms and fresh possibilities.
When we put mystery out of misery by gunning it down with an “any answer will do” attitude, we achieve superficial peace at the expense of a deeper understanding of what it means to be human.
Here’s today’s two cents:
Unanswered questions are not your enemy and the security that comes from a rash answer is the furthest thing from your friend.
Do not be threatened by mystery. It is the maker of sages and the molder of saints alike.
Questions are angels of light. “Be not afraid!”
Follow them. Speak to them. Listen to them. Nourish them.
They will usher you to vast realms within your own mind.
Inquiry is the path to illumination.
Walk it, and you will see the light, and you will be forever free.
That’s today’s two cents.
