Curiosity for Living

Is it a dangerous thing to have a sense of curiosity? To be curious about life, and spiritual things? Some say yes. 

After all, curiosity killed the cat. Poor kitty. 

Then there's the story of Pandora, whose irresistible curiosity to open the box unleashed all kinds of evil into the world.

Have you believed these warnings? Are you afraid of venturing into the unknown in your spiritual journey? I'm here to tell you that the voice of fear is not of God. 

Truth and courage are calling you to investigate. To wonder. To ask questions.

Curiosity won't kill you. (But it will kill apathy. It won't let you stay the same.)

Be alive. Be curious.

"Respond to every call that excites your spirit." --Rumi
