There is so much polarization in our world today. Views and ideas about groups of “other” people are becoming more and more solidified. The world sometimes feels heavy and stuck.
Dharma offers us the practice of curiosity. Curiosity allows us to be with whatever is arising, even if it’s difficult or uncomfortable. This practice creates the space that is needed to be with people who share even the most polar views to our own. Curiosity can produce a sense of light-heartedness and joy which then creates wonder. When wonder is generated, we can be with whomever is there and begin to understand from perspective, even if we don’t agree.
