“Curiously Committed to Seeking”
Is there a proper place where we should be?
There are those who seek knowledge for the purpose of knowing a thing for it’s own sake. The curious ones.
There are those who seek power so they might control the lives of others.
There are those who seek wisdom so they might increase the nature of their own understanding, using this learned knowledge to assist both themselves and others in life’s travails.
There are those who seek to follow others. Their place being to dwell among those who wait to be lead by other seekers.
“Seeking Fearful Refuge”
Seeking has its dangers. It can come with confrontation, disappointments, and betrayal, for there are many who fear seekers. Holding them in the same fearful regard as the unknown.
Curious seekers may fear the unknown, but their desire to discover, understand and explore the unknown is greater than the sum of their fears.
And finally there are those who both seek and follow. Alternating their course of action during their life experience depending on choices made.
For all of us, the seekers, non-seekers and those in between, there is still a sameness of purpose. A single thing desirable to all of us, whether the thought be subconscious or at the forefront of our minds.
We all desire to know of the proper place where we should be, where we belong …
” … but where ever the place may be, no matter our differences
– we do belong together!”

As a child I often felt like I didn’t belong. I now know that I just didn’t belong in the environment in which I found myself. It is liberating to find your own path in life. Excellent post Penny. 🙂
Thank you LuAnn. You and I share much in common when it comes to parts of our experiences in life. It is liberating, I agree with you! 🙂
Very wise thoughts Penny and true. We do belong together. Images are very cute.
Thank you, yes we do. Indira
