In the quest for truth, curiosity is a valuable trait to have. A spirit of interest and inquiry, a willingness to delve into something new, can open the way to progress and fresh ideas—especially when it pertains to the nature of what is true.
I like to think of the example of Moses in the Bible. Early in the book of Exodus, Moses observed that a bush was burning, yet it remained intact (see chapter 3). His curiosity led him closer to get a better look. At that point he perceived God revealing to him God’s own nature as the great “I AM.” As a result, Moses’ curiosity contributed to our better understanding of the truth about the Divine.
