Holy Curiosity



It surprised me to read that Albert Einstein spoke of spiritual curiosity. Then I think - how could he not?! He saw the wonders of the world in a profound way. Perhaps his way would be hard for me to understand. And yet, I read this quote and imagine that I do.


“DON’T THINK ABOUT WHY YOU QUESTION, SIMPLY DON’T STOP QUESTIONING. DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN’T ANSWER, AND DON’T TRY TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU CAN’T KNOW. CURIOSITY IS ITS OWN REASON. AREN’T YOU IN AWE WHEN YOU CONTEMPLATE THE MYSTERIES OF ETERNITY, OF LIFE, OF THE MARVELOUS STRUCTURE BEHIND REALITY? AND THIS IS THE MIRACLE OF THE HUMAN MIND—TO USE ITS CONSTRUCTIONS, CONCEPTS, AND FORMULAS AS TOOLS TO EXPLAIN WHAT MAN SEES, FEELS AND TOUCHES. TRY TO COMPREHEND A LITTLE MORE EACH DAY. HAVE HOLY CURIOSITY.”
