Saraswati Vandana By Pushpanjali Cultural Academy
Updated: Feb 21
The key to LIFE is to remain an Eternal Student... On this day of Learning, filled with Odes to all symbols of knowledge & wisdom, one must unlearn to be ‘Clever’ and strive to SEEK CONSTANTLY.
We don’t have to know it all
We don’t have to be perfect
We don’t have to be maestros
But we MUST be students...
Acknowledge our imperfections
Strive to be Better Than Yesterday.
“Wonder is the beginning of Wisdom” - Socrates.
Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. - Stephen Hawking
It’s only a healthy curious mind that can push boundaries of assimilating knowledge, guidance, and game changing experiences.
What does Curiosity actually DO to your BRAIN?
It Changes your brain chemistry. When the Ventral Tegmental Area and Nucleus Accumbens in the brain became active they both fire up the release of DOPAMINE - the neurotransmitter linked to Reward.
It makes you want to continue and accomplish more. Learn and Win. All your life experiences teach you something when you are open to configure yourself into ‘Eternal Student’. Else, they would have all been for naught.
Let’s trace how this can actually enhance memory. With dopamine your curious Hippocampus becomes more active, sending information to long term memory. When something intrigues you, your brain wires itself to store that info and rewards you for doing so.
Which is why after an Awe experience one’s attention is so charged that the Memory becomes more accurate.
Wonderment is the beginning of your spiritual journey.
Seek and Ye shall find.
In your odyssey to demystify, you will tap into the path of realization.
Realization of ignorance.
This is the flashpoint of your Real Truth.
Again feel like putting off something you don’t want to do or read or study?
This ‘Marvel Superhero’ is the real deal. When your brain is primed to marvel in fascinating info it can simultaneously take in random boring data as well.
That’s why when you need to learn or study and retain memory, just prior to that read or do things that really interest you... that’s all the superpower you need to amp your brain. Marvel!
