Everything starts with a desire, then a vision and a story or belief, followed by a decision and action. Everything created in your life started this way. Maybe it wasn’t conscious. Some of us are better at dreaming, some at taking action, some with deciding. Some of us are good at wanting. I have thought I want to live by the ocean. I want to exercise every day. I want to be a better partner and mother. I haven’t reached all of these goals, yet. But if the desire wasn’t there, would it ever be possible?
LEARNING SOMETHING NEW IMPLIES YOU DON'T YET HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE TO ACHIEVE IT.
I remember a moment years ago when I was attending a Catholic mass and Father Tom, an incredibly talented and wise priest, read Jesus' words, “What do you want me to do for you?” I was startled because I don’t ever remember hearing those words before. “What do you want me to do for you?” Father Tom asked us – "What do you want him to do for you?"
The amazing thing about that moment was that I didn’t really know the answer. Imagine, you can get anything you want if you can just say what it is. My point has nothing to do with Jesus. My point is: are we ready to live the life we want, right now? If someone came up to you and asked, “What are the underlying values that guide your life and your wants?” "When you end your day, are you satisfied that the time you spent fulfilled your values and goals?" Are you living your own life, or the life other people desire for you? Are you living fully in your body, or are you hiding?
As children, we learn everything from our instinctive curiosity. Watching, absorbing, listening, touching, tasting, copying, and trying over and over. We learn language; our curiosity is expressed in questions. How many parents and adults have been frustrated by the 58th “Why?” asked in a high-pitched voice by the toddler and finally answered with an exasperated response: “BECAUSE I SAID SO!”
In a More Beautiful Question, Warren Berger reports on research revealing that a child asks about forty thousand questions between the ages of two and five. The questions range from simple factual questions to requests requiring explanations. As this is happening, there is rapid brain growth -- about a quadrillion connection of neurons firing in a child’s brain. (That is 1,000,000,000,000,000.)
