Learning to Learn

Natural inquisitiveness is being eager to learn and eager to explore. It is not learning in the sense of collecting information; rather, it is absorbing what is happening around us, constantly relating to it. In this kind of learning, we do not learn things so that we can use them at some point to defend ourselves. In this case, we learn things because they are pleasurable to learn, fantastic to learn. 
- from Crazy Wisdom by Chögyam Trungpa

How do you unfurl with inquisitiveness to permit your curiosity to lead into explorations?

Consider the times you have learned from an experience. 

Write about the difficult lessons and where they led.  

Scribble the pleasures and enjoyment that flowed from an event.

Move from a tight bud into the unfolding petals of a rose in your writing. 

Develop additional metaphors to expand the possibilities of ways you learned to learn.

Move into full bloom.
