August 2014: Charity

In looking up the definition of “Charity” in the online Oxford Dictionary, I found two of the four options rather interesting. Of course they had the two obvious ones:

Help or money given voluntarily to those in need
An organization set up to provide help and raise money for those in need

Both valid and both important in our society. However, options 3 and 4 touched my heart/soul deeply and I knew that these options are to be the focus of this month’s mandala of the month.

June 2014: Curiosity

Curiosity may be deadly for cats but for us humans it’s a necessity…otherwise we remain stuck where we are.

On Merriam-Webster’s site, they define curiosity as:

the desire to learn or know
more about something or someone

When we stop being curious, we stop growing. When we stop growing, we start dying. That seems a bit harsh and yet it is the truth.
