Human Life Hack Number 2- Being Inquisitive
Start your day with an intention to be inquisitive/curious. This action sounds simple and yet is not so easy as we are hard-wired to see familiar patterns throughout our day. This is how we have been programmed to navigate and it takes conscious effort to see, hear and experience life outside of our conditioned reality.
If any of you have ever moved to a new city or traveled to a foreign country then chances are you have an idea about what I am speaking. You initially brought a lot more conscious awareness to your surroundings. In fact your environment might even have had a surreal quality to it. Brighter colors, richer sounds, connecting with people and places on a more synchronistic level. This is an open inquisitive/curious mind interacting with the world.
You experienced what may have felt like an altered state of consciousness and I beg to differ. Crazy as it sounds, this is our natural way of being and to live there we need only remind ourselves that we have strayed from home. Use your inquisitive nature to cease clinging to conditioned states of consciousness and the filters will soon drop off and give you a glimpse of what is. We may actually visit this place more often than we realized and next time you do remember to celebrate your return.
