Be like a Child...
"If you open your heart and become like a child, you will always be blissful, always content."
- Dharma Mittra
What image, words, feelings, qualities come to your mind when you think of a child?...
What comes to me is ...Joy, innocence, playfulness, creativity, spontaneity,
curiosity, fearlessness, genius, wonder, lots of energy, unconditional love,
easy to forgive, flexibility, happiness, miracles,
always in the present moment!! wow! Amazing!
And I would assume that more or less you have a similar image of a child.
We, the adults, all need more of that! our world needs more of these qualities,
"Children are happy because they don't have a file in their minds called "All the Things That Could Go Wrong."
- Marianne Williamson
Children ARE our best teachers. They are constantly reminding us not to be so
serious, laugh or cry with all our hearts, be curious, be in the moment,
where everything is a miracle!
"Like a child,
we can be fresh every day,
but we do not allow it because of
the concepts stored inside."
Spend time with children (borrow someone's 4 years old if you need to :), play, listen and be reminded how easy and effortless is to be in this world when you are a
child-like. So, allow yourself to act like a child, view the world with wonder,
be happy for no reason, and you will enter the Kingdom of Heaven
that is already here.
