On my way to the Creatrix Transformations Healing Centre I always pass two churches as I approach Sharon, Ontario. Both of these churches have the traditional billboards, and both of these churches always have *something* written on them. Interestingly enough, one I always ignore, and one I can't wait to see.
As I was explaining this to my husband he suggested that I blog about it, and it really got me to thinking...why do I ignore one of the billboards and gauge traffic to appropriately be able to peruse the second? And it came to me; the second billboard always changes, and it's always something metaphorical and interesting.
Could enlightenment be that simple? Keep me curious. Keep me engaged. And I'll keep coming back for more.
Well as I began to look at it, I heard the NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) axiom that "How you do anything, is how you do everything?", and I realized that for me it IS true! In order for me to stay engaged in anything, I need to be *grabbed*. Intellectually or emotionally.
Hmmph!!! What to make of that? Is that a failing? Is that something to alter? And perhaps paradoxically (some might say), I came to the conclusion that *curiousity* is one of the most endearing traits of human beings, and that it is completely necessary for our human development.
Our need to evolve, to see *what's next* is directly linked to our curiousity and the wonder-full question of "What if...?". This is a trait that led to Einstein's discoveries about relativity, and recently, Bruce Lipton's work on epigentics; the study of how environment and belief alter our DNA.
Nope, says I, to the nay-sayers. I'll keep and nourish my curiousity. It has served the great minds of our time, and as I was reminded by a minister friend of mine, it served the Wise Men too :)
Curiousity may 'kill the cat', but 'satisfaction' brought him back eight more times :)
Yup, that's me...the curious one poking at the box of spiritual secrets...and yes, that's me too; the one very satisfied to have explored the territory and had all sorts of wonderous adventures.
Happy adventures on this holiday season everyone. May your curiousity bring you many wonder-full discoveries. I'll be the curious one waiting to meet you under the bright, shining star!
In Love & Light-
