"I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief."
-- Gerry Spence
Now we will all like this quote but will we examine in ourselves how much of our own mind is closed because of belief?
Are we really ever willing or able to listen to people with alternate or even opposing points of view? Do we just read, listen and view those who agree with us and validate that everything we think is right? Are we really not afraid to entertain other points of view? Can we truly respect those we disagree with or do we have to mock and belittle them? Do you have a mind opened by wonder or do you have a mind closed by belief? I'm sure your mind is opened. Or is it?
