I have always been mesmerized by poetic song lyrics. I relate to the learning that helps us know "less about before" as follows: the more we learn, the more we become aware of how little we know. In learning, we must shed our misconceptions of the past. This process is both humbling and exhilarating.
I am motivated to dig deep for clues on higher ground every time I am confronted with new insights that challenge my previous constructs. What helps me empty myself is to immerse myself in the process of learning, whether it be through observation, listening, reading, playing (e.g. a musical instrument), etc. I find that once I immerse myself, the process becomes the habit, and the insights that emerge spark a natural curiosity for this higher ground.
