The difference between curiosity and commitment applies to our personal and romantic life as much as to our business ventures, school degrees and it makes all the difference in the world if we are committed or just being curious.
Curiosity is feeling things out and exploring, carefully looking for signs of danger, almost expecting some obstacle to appear and as it is with our minds, what see what we assume. Plus, it’s easier giving up than getting through, easier to hide than being rejected, easier to blame than to respect and easier pointing fingers than having a good look at yourself. When not fully committing to changing yourself (for the better) life will teach us rough lessons, until we get it, or we don’t (just yet).
Swans commit for life
Being committed means to do anything in your power to get the results you are looking for. Being curious is figuring out what those results might look like, meaning you don’t know yet what to go for – in a partnership, your family-life, your professional approach, or in spirituality. It took me ages to find out what the endgame is going to look like. Regretting what we did not do when we are on our deathbeds is not the best feeling, right? Some people might think, who cares? I’ve looked back before as my life was flashing by and I thanked every single moment and being for the blessings I received.
We are all curious and there’s nothing wrong with being curious, but there comes a time when we have to grow up and commit to certain things. Without commitment, success is very difficult. In spirituality, it means to be sincere about our approach. In partnership and marriage, it translates into being committed to one another and working through all the difficulties that might show up. When we are truly committed to succeeding in whatever we do, we get stronger and this is how we evolve. How we do anything is how we do everything! Yes, please stay curious, but commit yourself at the right time to the right thing as well. The results are worth the hard work. With love, Omananda
