The inquisitive mind wants to know

The inquisitive mind is that part of us that is curious and open to learning. It has no preconceptions about the experience in front of it. Its only intention is to know what is there. It is the mind of a child. It is born of innocence.

It is the inquisitive mind that gets into things. It is full of passion. It creates the sparkle in your eye. It is playful and mischievous. It is truly interested in what people are saying. It asks questions when someone is explaining something and really wants to understand what they mean. It wants to know what life feels like to that person. It is pure discovery.

When the inquisitive is present, people feel heard. They experience that you care about them and what they are saying. By genuinely wanting to know about them, you are demonstrating that you care.

The inquisitive mind is teachable. It helps us learn from every experience that we have. It is the spirit of exploration. It helps "empty our cup" (see previous blog)- so we can experience what is there. It is non-attachment of Buddhism. It is the mother of invention- and innovation. It always creates excellence.

So do what ever it takes to awaken the inquisitive mind that resides in you. Some people play with their kids. Some meditate. Others create things. I say, "I am nothing; I know nothing" (see other previous blog) when entering an experience. Your inquisitive mind will help you find the awe and splendor in things. It will help you feel alive.

Besides... the inquisitive mind creates the only truly pure intention- the intention of: "I want to know." It has no agenda. It could be: I want to know...what is there. Or: I want to know...what it is like. Or it could be: I want to know...who you are.

I do believe that a home foreclosure can have a major effect on the borrower's life. Mortgage foreclosures can have a Seven to ten years negative relation to a applicant's credit report. The borrower having applied for a mortgage or virtually any loans for example, knows that a worse credit rating is, the more hard it is to have a decent financial loan. In addition, it could possibly affect the borrower's capability to find a reasonable place to lease or hire, if that gets the alternative houses solution. Thanks for your blog post.
