We never grow weary of discovery. We want to know even when we do not know why.
“All men by nature desire to know,” Aristotle wrote. John O”Donohue puts it sweetly when he offers: ‘This is the secret magic and danger of having a mind. Even though your body is always bound to one place, your mind is a relentless voyager.’*
There’s always another journey, another discovery, and I feel this need to keep moving, not because I am not satisfied but because I am:
‘Knowing calls you out of yourself. Discovery delights the heart.’*
There is something transfiguring in discovery. When I know I am also known. We share with each other our discoveries and we know each other better.
Who are the people of discovery who lead you into more, and who are those you leading?
Whatever these days contain for you, may they be rich and meaningful … and fun.
(From John O”Donohue’s Eternal Echoes.)
