I woke up thinking that in order to be curious, I must be absolutely, totally, in the present moment. To be real, to have its natural power, curiosity must be utterly innocent, without agenda, in timeless space.
After I had these first thoughts about curiosity, I asked myself if they felt true. I thought about it. I decided that I cannot be truly curious if I am in any way distracted: if I'm anxious about whether you will be willing to hear what I have to say — if I'm determined to make you listen to me — if I feel any time press — if I'm sending any covert message in my question — if I have any agenda about the outcome of our conversation.
