1000 ways, really? Yes, a thousand ways and many more based on this: there is no one way to explore.
What is the right method for becoming a true explorer? Let’s be very clear on this: THERE IS NO METHOD. Or, if you prefer, there are thousands of different methods. There is no “authority” that can tell you what you have to do or what you don’t. That’s totally up to YOU!
You ought to explore everything. It’s your nature to explore things. The method you use, the way you choose is completely up to you. No one can tell you how to explore things because there isn’t an exclusive method.
Think about the implications. Some of them are actually bad news because we (humans) want to be told what to do. The truth is that we are scared to dead of having too many options.
One the other hand, not having to meet any process requirements gives us the freedom to start exploring everything we want, right here, right now
All you need is to keep your eyes open and question everything. You should also take notes or pictures, and preferable both.
In a filmed conference, Jiddu Krishnamurti held that “only a mind that is in a state of inquiry is capable of learning” and thus “asking for a method is the same as asking –please, tell me what to do”
If you decide to give it a try, there are some very good benefits you could get by exploring (independently from the object of exploration): You’ll beat boredom for good; discover new things; find inspiration everywhere; learn to see things in a different way; improve your social skills and many more.
So, don’t be afraid of exploring new things and don’t use the lack of method as an excuse for not becoming a true explorer.
Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover – as Mark Twain would have said.
