Curiosity didn’t kill the cat. Curiosity creates an opening for more knowledge. More knowledge leads to more wisdom. What does “kill the cat”? Closed mindedness. This is what “kills the cat.” The cat, our soul. Not being inquisitive kills our soul.
Curiosity is the tool towards openness, growth and transformation.
Our souls strive to learn more and connect with new lessons. New lessons for our soul’s growth & transformation. Curiosity is an extremely admirable trait. I highly admire my 10-year old niece. Not only do I admire her, at 47 years on this earth, I strive to be more like her. More inquisitive. She is truly one of the most inquisitive soul’s I’ve ever met. Definitely an old soul, yet, she is continually and constantly asking questions. She can “act her age”, however, she really never pretends to know something if she doesn’t know it. She uses the tool of questioning to learn more and to understand. While her younger siblings are off playing, she is listening to the adults, asking questions, participating in the conversation and becoming more intelligent. She is truly growing not only physically, but mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It’s quite a sight. (Yes, I’m quite the proud Auntie/God-Mama!) She has been doing this since she learned to talk. Many children grow out of this stage, and as adults, many of us forget what it felt like to crave knowledge. We think we know everything. Do you? Do you truly know everything? When did you stop asking questions? Why did you stop asking questions? Are you afraid someone may think you un-intelligent? Or perhaps “ignorant”?
There is nothing wrong with being ignorant. Ignorant means you simply do not know. You didn’t learn something. That’s all. The “negative connotation” associated with this word in today’s society needs to be removed from your mind. Removing the attachment to the negativity of a word, such as “ignorant”, “un-educated”, or “un-informed”, creates an open mind. With an open mind, you can become curious and ask questions. By being inquisitive, you will learn more and thus, grow. You will no longer be suffocating the soul…you will be feeding your soul. And, this will lead you to learn more about your true spiritual purpose.
May you feed your soul with curiosity!
