We are rational, creative, but what distinguishes our species in this planet is our ability to learn and share this knowledge throughout generations. This is only possible because we communicate. And communication is not only about speaking, but especially, about listening. An attentive listening.
The result of this communication through an attentive listening leads to learning. Our mind learns when we pay attention. And our evolution only came through learning, as I read lately in an article from Scientific American. This is why I wonder if we are aware of being learning minds.
Being a learning mind means paying attention, always curious, strive for resilience, welcome failure with humility and find courage in vulnerability. Our species will continue to evolve if we learn until that dying breath. The implications of this awareness can be profound, but reduced to nothing unless we live them every hour of every day.
