I was so moved last night by the NASA’s successful landing of Curiosity on Mars. Many of us were pulled out of our navel-gazing and looked outward in unison and celebration. But to look inward and to look outward is the human dance. An important one.
What do my self-explorations in journals mean? Is it all part of the big picture?
Curiosity, exploration and self-esteem…
What do these terms have in common? In your journal, write down their definitions. Research, explore. Find quotes. Contemplate.
We literally plug into an inner energy that it ours alone, yet connects us to everything else. To put it another way: I began to understand that self-esteem isn’t everything; it’s just that there’s nothing without it.
The real which is at the heart of the universe is reflected in the infinite depths of the self. – Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan
Curiosity is insubordination in its purest form. Vladimir Nabokov
… exploring the reaches and mysteries of inner space…” – Assemblyman Vasconcellos
