How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?

Only when we’re open can we really hear what’s being said or really see what’s happening or really experience the moment.

Openness demands that we be willing to move to
places we’ve never been before. It asks us to continually challenge the
foundations of our belief systems so we can test out new ideas. And to
do that, we need to accept insecurity.

Be open to seeing things: – from another’s point
of view, – from a higher and more inclusive perspective – with a
beginner’s attitude of wonder.

“The struggle of the mind to keep itself free from
every sort of bondage — to remain curious, open, unsatiated in all its
relations with nature — is tenfold more difficult than the cultivation
of a stable, satisfying point of view, but a thousandfold more
precious.”

— Gardner Murphy

“Remain open. There is something bigger than you know going on here.”

— Iyanla VanZant

  1. sometimes people confuse rejecting an idea as being close minded.the key is to listen to any idea and evaluate it and its possibilities.

  2. Reminds me of a link I sent to people of a propaganda video of Iraqi resistance fighters under the title, “You must open your eyes to truly see.” It was in English, and it really made me think about a lot of things. Like at one part, the narrator says something along the lines of: and lower your weapons (to the occupation forces), and take refuge in our Mosques and Churches, as others have done before you. The “as others have done before you” part still confuses me.
