Children must be taught
HOW to think not
WHAT to think.
- MARGARET MEAD
WHAT IS A CHILD?
POTENTIALITY MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH
A child (or a mini-human) is nothing more than pure 'Potentiality' (or LIFE) manifested in the flesh. And what we call an "adult" is most likely a conditioned version of this child. As human beings, we are all originally beautiful seeds full of potential, but somewhere along the way we get lost. Good news is though, we can always find our way back home/om.
Inside each and everyone of us, lies a "dormant" power which is waiting for one thing - for you to notice it. If you pause your "adult" life for a moment and start looking inwards instead of outwards, you will see access some amazing & powerful resources lying there, waiting for you to re-grow the strong luminous human being you've always been destined to be!
HOW CAN WE KEEP THEIR LIGHT ALIVE?
BY LEARNING TO LETTING THEM BE
RE-thinking the way we approach "Education" is a good way to start the de-conditioning process of the Mini-Humans. It seems like Society is trapped in a shoe box of thoughts & beliefs about size 3 which is clearly stopping Humanity from wearing some beautiful high heels.
There are plenty of creative ideas out there on how to consciously bring up children into this world. What we were once "taught" as kids, was not necessarily the most appropriate way to approach things. Re-considering our own beliefs & patterns as a parent, is probably a great way to start a conscious parenting way of life.
We may also want to consider this simple yet profound realisation - children are here to teach us the greatest lessons, not the other way around.
