I am a wisdom curator. To do that I explore wonder and why:
Wonder (curiosity): to wonder is to acknowledge one’s ignorance, not in a state of despair or passivity, but in the pleasurable pursuit of further knowledge.
Wonder (awe): to be the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world. Awe’s gift is that it doesn’t always make us happy, but it renders us more fully alive.
Why (purpose): “We ache to touch intimately what is real, to find the marriage of meaning and matter in our lives and in the world. We ache to feel and express the fire of being fully alive.”
Why (wisdom & understanding): We become wise when we see with understanding through the eyes of ethics, principle, memory of the past and projection into the future.
Or I will sit in my comfy chair by the window and muse with my cup of tea.
