Happiness is Mystery & Discovery

Happiness is Mystery & Discovery

01The real voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but seeing with new eyes ~ Marcel Proust

Since I was a little kid the world has always fascinated me.  I’m someone who believes there is magic in the world, most of that magic is just the amazing diversity of creatures that exist.  Part of that magic is the way physics shines a light on how our world works.  Some of that is of course the utterly and insanely bizarre way that our universe works.  Some of that magic is in the things we cannot explain with physics, at least not yet.

There are constant and amazing stories in this world of things that defy our explanation.  I admit freely that a very high percentage of these can be or will eventually be explained by science.  But there is that small fraction of things that truly seem like they may never be explained by normal methods, perhaps they will, but isn’t it just a little more fun to believe that some of those are just plain magic?  It amazes me how many people don’t even know why the sky is blue.

IMGP9909I’m an insanely curious person and it is part of what makes me happy.  It leads to happiness because it pushes me to learn things I don’t know, to visit places and experience things outside of my normal range of experience.

So my friends, be curious, ask why, dig for answers, there’s a satisfaction in discovery that will lead to many happy days ~ Rev Kane
