Holding Ourselves Open

I have learned that anytime I am introduced to new information or a new idea and it sounds absurd to me, to step back, to allow ambiguity, and to see how this new idea might in fact hold elements of truth or teach me something I had not previously known.

We simply don’t know it all, others have knowledge and understanding about things that we may only now be introduced to. Rushing to close down ambiguity is the surest way to stop learning. Rather, we allow the vulnerability of holding open new ideas for exploration and contemplation.
