Happiness, joy, truth, simplicity exists always and lives in children! From them, we derive our faith for life, and the strength for love. 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? And just like that, the greatest relationship that life has given us is 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 and have and will always have the solution, the light, and the truth. We just need to listen. We need to “listen” to the children with all of our senses. It is certain that all those who will listen, feel, understand, and interpret the children, they will eventually restore their balance. They will return to the road of the balanced truth. Children are the nature in its authentic form.
Genuineness and authenticity, are the necessary tools to reorient ourselves. The maintenance of the authenticity, is our main goal. Unfortunately, we all more or less follow the contrary road. We impose and guide children to whatever our reality is, as the truth of life. 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! Who said that the real is the well balanced truth? Unconsciously and fearfully, we still act like humans. We need to respect their originality and bow humbly and with gratitude, before it is too late. 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 the 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 THE 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.
