A recent quote I read:

“A closed person lives on a ‘flat earth’.  The open-minded person lives in an ever-expanding mystery.”
 From Margaret Silf’s Compass Points.
It makes me think.  Am I a closed person who lives on a flat earth?  Am I a person who is not willing to see the potential beyond the horizon?  Or am I an open person who is willing to accept the ever-expanding mystery in my life?  Am I a person who is willing to trust that there is something amazing beyond the horizon I can currently see?  
Which are you?
