If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...
Did you know that curiosity creates opportunity and solutions? It is true that when you are curious, you cannot be afraid or negative. You literally disengage from limited thinking by engaging a curious mind.
Ask yourself - how curious am I? When faced with a conflict, or problem, financial, emotional, or health - do you get curious or do you react with fear? When you replace concerns and fears with curiosity, something physical happens in your brain - you re-engage your open potential where there is a solution to every problem and condition.
You have a magnificent brain with different levels of brain waves that reflect different states of consciousness. In your ordinary daily thinking activity, your fastest brain wave - beta (logical thinking mind) - operates 90% of the time for a 1% return. Our beta mind thinks in duality of this or that, maybe, maybe not, and uncertainty. It also pulls from the past and projects to the future so it can only analyze old data - not much help there.
It is hard to find a solution or go in the right direction with conflicting thoughts based on past mistakes and experiences. Most folks try to think their way into a new solution and find it hard and difficult - often forcing a result that turns out badly.
Curiosity brings you into a state of your greater intelligence that you may not even know you have - your slower brain wave of theta that only operates in the now of a potential.
Being curious brings you into investigating possibilities without knowing an answer and simultaneously reduces your negative, concerned fearful emotions. This is powerful because now you have the space for something other than your fear to arrive.
Try it for yourself. Think of a fear or a problem, close your eyes and mentally say to yourself - I am curious - I am just curious about this situation. Notice how your mind quiets. Each time your fear arises repeat the process - I am curious.
Stay away from "trying for the solution for awhile" because if you are in fear, you don't have it anyway. As you get curious, it arrives. Test it and see what happens.
I often say, "Living a natural easy life is your birthright - and all you have to do is give up everything you think you know in this moment to have it. Of course we laugh about that ridiculous notion - right! However you absolutely have a great intelligence within you waiting to arrive wherein you can live easily and naturally achieving all that you desire, solving any problem and doing it all in joy and satisfaction. Your birthright is waiting. I call this the next great adventure of your life - discovering the power of who you truly are. Join me on the journey."

By Sandra Beck. One of the things I tried was yoga to get through the aftermath of my divorce. So many people told me...
Remember, perspective can cause two people to look at the same thing and see two totally different things.

Focus on the 'WHY' and not the 'HOW'. Remember... where focus goes, energy flows.
