Curiosity, exploration and self-esteem… #journal exercise #MSL and @neiltyson

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?

From Brainpickings:

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Curiosity, exploration and self-esteem…

What do these terms have in common?  In your journal, write down their definitions.  Research, explore.  Find quotes.  Contemplate.

From Gloria Steinem’s A Book of Self-Esteem, Revolution from Within:

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

My father’s current research journals at his care facility

… exploring the reaches and mysteries of inner space…” – Assemblyman Vasconcellos
