Sometimes I want to know because I’m genuinely curious. Sometimes, I want to know because I’m scared. Scared that I should know, or that I need to know. How do I know which is which?
When I’m scared, I often feel tight in my belly. So I decided to observe what my body feels like when I’m genuinely curious. I’ve noticed softness at my forehead, like my brain was opening to new information.
Knowing the difference means I can follow my curiosity with glee (see above kitten), and I can rest and allow my fear-engine to stop spinning.
