Curiosity: Never Stop

Published on May 26, 2019

As I searched the web for pictures of curiosity that spoke to me, I noted that most photos were of kids. That of course makes sense as little ones are the ultimate of curious as everything under the sun is new to them. The practice of Buddhism encourages a quality called, “beginner’s mind“.
