Happiness, joy, truth, simplicity exists always and lives within children! We derive our faith and the strength for life, for the future and for love, from children. It is not accidental. The children are the first and most worthwhile resource of life. It is the continuation of life and therefore hope. It is the means of happiness for all of us.
As such if all this is true, why aren’t we consulting our children when something goes wrong in our life? Is it because they don’t know? Is it because they don’t have our experiences? Is it because we don’t want to show our weaknesses, our mistakes, our dead ends to them? Why don’t we respond with integrity in this most authentic relationship of our lives, that we must preserve as such, with absolute trust, respect and sincerity? Why are we taught to hide from the most important relationship of our lives? And afterwards to enslave it in a mere continuation? In a cover up?
Just like that, the greatest relationship that life has given us, becomes fake.
Fear, doubt, shape, responsibility. No matter what, no matter what piles up, no matter how we lose ourselves in the passage of life, we need to make a small step back towards the children. We should be willing to see what they have to say, advise us, teach us, through the clarity of their prism, before it blurs from our turbulences and symphonies. The children had, have and will always have the solution, the light, and the truth. We just need to listen. Children are nature in its authentic form.
Genuineness and authenticity, are the necessary tools to reorient ourselves. The maintenance of authenticity is our main goal. Unfortunately, all of us, more or less follow the contrary road. We impose and guide the children to whatever our reality is. As if we have proven to ourselves that we are doing everything right. As if we preserve ourselves happy and safe. We keep ignoring our mistakes and dead ends, trying to empower and save ourselves from the unexplained voices of our heart. Selfishness!
Children have the accumulated consciousness of our whole world with an exception of our misleading awareness. As such we must return back there, without that misleading feeling of reality.
Let’s accept our dead ends. Let’s forgive ourselves since we cannot easily understand, become happy or offer happiness. Let’s listen to the children, let’s learn from them, let’s follow them. Let’s listen to nature, learn from it, follow it. It is the first step for the improvements that our world needs. Give them the opportunity to talk and scream their truth. They know. And if our own foundation is not stable, let them build their own from the beginning. They are in danger if they use us as their foundation.
We are all one. This is the true responsibility and the debt of life.
IF YOU LOSE ALL YOUR HOPES, TURN WITH ALL OF YOUR DIGNITY LEFT, AND AS DEFEATED BUT RESPECTFUL WARRIORS, KNEEL IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN AND THEIR WISDOM! THERE ARE MANY OF THEM AROUND. THEY MAY NOT BE OUR OWN, BIOLOGICALLY, BUT THEY ARE THERE FOR US. BECAUSE WE ARE ALL ONE.
