"Just like Christopher Columbus or Marco Polo, I believe each of us came to this planet hardwired to explore, to push out, to grow and to evolve -- to discover new parts of ourselves and our world we have not seen before...
... Sometimes the greatest discoveries are made by exploring inner space, in the cracks and crevices of our belief system, which has everything to do with how we perceive ourselves and our world.
In other words, new discovery is also an inside job that invites us to see our lives and our world, right where we are, from a new perspective...
... As Thoreau wrote, "It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see."
Given this perspective, what you see when you look at your life and your world truly is a work of art.
You really don't have to go all that far on your voyage of discovery to find something new.
You just need to have new eyes.... "
