Being ever curious is not the same feeling as being restless.
One is open-ended expectancy, an ease with the possibility of surprise.
The other is impatience, a tension with the likelihood of disappointment.
These are not simply different definitions or descriptions of hypotheticals. These are two completely different life experiences. These are two different emotional events. One is not a more effective response or efficient reaction or morally superior in any way over the other.
They most definitely feel quite differently though.
I can learn from both types of experiences. I can even learn the same lesson from two different approaches.
What I can’t deny is that I have a choice, lots of them actually.
What I’m asking us to try
is to make more of our choices in the direction of what would make our heart feel better about itself . . .
which would make the next heart feel better about itself . . . and so on . . .
. . . in our return to our own genuine decency . . .
We cannot think our way there. That has led only to lies and debate.
Each of us has to be willing to try . . . every time we remember . . . to make a choice from the goodness of our hearts and not from the clamor in our heads.
