Use Your Curiosity to Discover Your Unique Place Among the Stars – Daily Quote

Is your destiny written in the stars? Your daily horoscope can offer insight on whether you will meet your soul mate today or if your best option is hiding under the covers. Interpretations from the heavenly bodies influence many, offering guidance with their decisions. Others scoff at relying on unproven theories.

Our society places great value on truth, science, and a preponderance of evidence to support our tradition of enlightenment and to explain our world. A sensible person believes in the well explained. They disregard the existence of wonder, dismiss awe, question the possibility of miracles, and discount the surprise of serendipity. We satisfy our interests with a quick internet search. Studies show the individuals who are the most innovative are also eager to explore, accept risks, and dig deeper into “why.”

They say curiosity drives creativity, and creativity takes us on non-linear paths through sometimes embarrassing happenstance. Tapping into our creative side means allowing ourselves to be vulnerable to get messy, to move things around, and experiment. We must develop a willingness to laugh, play, and flirt with genius. The inspiration is within your reach. You only need to look at the stars.

What questions will you explore today?

  1. Your paragraph on creativity is terrific. Creativity is messy; I think it has to be.

    Well, now I’m thinking about the Great Junction (in response to your question about questions). The stars are inspiring, as Hawking and you note. I wonder if there is a closer relationship possible as well (though inspiration’s pretty good).
