Week Ahead : The Wonder Fool

The whimsical Fools Wisdom Oracle comes out to join us and reminds us that we should always retain the sense of wonder we’re given when we’re kids.

When was the last time you looked at the world with a sense of wonder, curiosity and discovery? I forget, being a busy mum that my children have this question of “why” at least once a day from the two that can talk. They’re curious, they ask questions, even if it’s not a why it’s a “Daddy, how does” type question.

I forget that there’s more to discover in this realm of life, but we take things for granted when we’re adults. When life of raising kids, the job, commuting, working the system and in general, being alive in this modern age, we forget that life is magical and wonderful.

We forget to discover the magic that surrounds us. At the worst, we’ve lost the curiosity, closed our minds off. When we get depressed, it can manifest in this way, that we get bored. Basically, we’ve lost the curiosity from our hearts, shut our minds off from the wonders that are happening all around us.

I’ve been busy in the garden recently, side by side with the boys helping. We’ve observed that the plants are budding, the snow drops are dying back and the daffodils and tulips are starting to come out.

The key with this card and with us all I feel is this: Keep your mind open and never assume you know it all. (p19 from the book). Which makes me think of this song to Free Your Mind. I hope the rest of it flows for you and that your curiosity is at full strength.

I’ve used the Fools Oracle by Sonia Choquette for this post, so enjoy!

    Hi Louise I am so happy you can get that sense of wonder in your garden together with your boys. Children are a great channel to experience the wonder of the changing seasons. It is that cycle what makes me sometimes look through childlike eyes too

      I forget to take stock, to sit and just be. Hard with the kids but sometimes I manage it 🙂
