Blessing for today ~ Thirst for Knowledge ~
I have always thirsted for knowledge. I have always been full of questions. ~ Herman Hesse ~
I was THAT kid. Mom would tell me some bit of information. It could be anything. I asked, “Why”? She gave an interesting answer. I asked, “Why”? There was never an end to that conversation. There couldn’t be. There is always another, “Why”? I had to accept that there would be inevitably a time to continue later or a challenge to find out for myself. That’s the demand of a thirst for knowledge. I love the balance of this quotation. One who THIRSTS for knowledge is, at the same time, FULL of questions. That balance always persists. When a question is answered, a thirst is quenched. When a thirst is quenched, a new question arises. The thirst for knowledge is a boundless pool of Yin and Yang that feeds the mind, and, in doing so, feeds the heart with passion and desire, and the soul with fire and tranquility.
