As humans, we are curious by nature. A simple doorway in front of us, opens our imagination; and questions us, “what lies beyond?” In straightforward cases, the answer is given to us. However, that does not happen very often.
Thus, our imagination takes over. We may spend minutes, hours or days in our minds deciphering. In fact, we may never learn the truth. We may never know ‘what lies beyond’. Yet when we have found what we are looking for, the truth can either break us, make us become a better person or eventually set us free. As the proverb says: “curiosity killed the cat, satisfaction brought it back.” Besides, does our curiosity ever stop? Or do we only stop questioning once we have learnt the truth? Perhaps after we have learnt the truth, there are many more doors to unlock. On the other hand, maybe it is more safe to leave the door locked. To move on with our life, never knowing the truth; but always curious.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.
So my question for you today is:
“What lies beyond?”
