Curiosity is one of the most useful and important virtues in these worlds.
It is endowed within beings, but depends upon on how one is making use of it. There is no need to go to school or have prestige education to be curious.
People ask many questions about many things, but what is different here is the type and strength, which matters on the level of education one possesses.
Our search towards any reality is dependent up on the degree of our curiosity in nature. Curiosity is a key that unlocks the door of the city of search, for in it many virtues are hidden.
It is a portal to know new realities and leads us to use our potentialities on the process of investigation of many matters we do not know.
People say curiosity kills the cat, which may not apply to human beings for it gives life to our mind, and it is an essential attribute to acquire if we really want to know mysteries in life.
Saint Augustine said, … a free curiosity has more force in our learning these things than a frightful enforcement. It is indeed one way of learning new realities from the things we do not know.
Unless and otherwise we are not curious towards any reality in this objective world, we cannot learn and know much.
In a very fact there are two types of curiosity, one is a noble one and the other one is the idle one.
The noble type of curiosity always directs to the noble way, where it assists us to reach a higher level of thinking and reality, so that we can enter a new level of mentality and station.
The idle curiosity is something that leads one to be in a state of confusion in the reality one is trying to govern. Instead of directing us to the desired and correct path, it may lead us to the way we have never thought and sought, due to failures and errors people are constantly committing. Probably, this kind of curiosity kills that cat.
Our curiosity should be to know a reality higher and greater than what one knows. It should have a noble purpose. One may need to exert energy and thoughts for valuable objectives. Otherwise our curiosity would be futile.
It should lead to realize a reality, which was not revealed before. It may not be important to know in which restaurant one’s friend has drunk coffee last night.
One needs to be able to identify one’s priority in life and try to apply to know a reality by the useful means, for the type of things one knows in life affects, in one way or the other, our thinking.
Albert Einstein said, Great people discuss ideas, middle people discuss events and small people discuss people, which may serve us a wonderful guidance on prioritizing our need in life.
In fact some times one may need to know about people who may affect one’s life in that case the knowledge of people may be important. The other times one may need to know an event, which has a crucial role to play in one’s life, and in this case one may need to know those events.
In general, one may not be at all times in need of events and people, which may lead to bad habits.
In general, curiosity is a useful instrument to know and understand any reality. The best means for acquiring curiosity is through asking question, which needs inquisitive and investigative mind set.
To question is the very nature of our intellectual reality as far as our reality as a human being is concerned.
One of the effective instruments and ways one can acquire curiosity is through questions. The more one asks, the better curious one becomes.
Although it is dependent up on the type of society one is living and trained in, questions are a powerful means for acquiring and developing curiosity and knowledge.
One may not find suitable answers for the many of subtle questions one have in mind; and one may incline to be tired of having questions in mind. However, never give up asking!
In reality, questions give birth to answers, and answers do in turn give birth to questions, they are always in a vicious circle, nothing is outside the other and lives in isolation, and both are interconnected.
We should not feel tired in asking questions, for it is like breathing for our intellect.
If we cannot question, our intellectual life is in danger, and we need to maintain our mind very strong, which is sustained by the world of questions at every time and in every condition.
