Just the other day, I escaped the company of my everyday life and sought refuge on the water front here in Montreal in an attempt to recharge my energies. Taking advantage of a gorgeous day, I walked across the long stretch of the Saint Lawrence River, as a means of my meditation routine.
Keep in mind
Whilst observing the birds enjoying their new spring my eyes fell upon the sight of a child and his grandma playing. They were along together, appreciating that spring afternoon. They had been together with no attachment between. That was the experience of the moment together. I sat awhile watching and keeping up the notion of these in mind when a flash struck me.
How beautiful the sight, looking at both spirits at the way that they were together with one another. The simplicity of the innocent child, with no awareness of any effect on his emotion, those may come as a result of life’s hurdles that await him. Then I looked in the grandmother at exactly the exact same time. She was completely at peace with herself and the innocence of her inner child, which still prevails in her old age, was sufficient proof to me to realize.
Let’s understand it
Our era has no significance upon being happy inside. For me, that experience was really overwhelming! Normally, I don’t have the ability to see the air which exists about people; however, I can feel it through my religious healing work. It had been clear, the connection that existed and the transfer of energies. I gazed through that experience until a thought happened in my mind, just where did we go wrong as human beings, in between those phases in life between youth and old age? Why did we give up our innocence whilst growing up? We do not get this habit through our own life; no matter how tough our adventures were when growing up.
It appears, somehow during our period when growing up, we misplaced awareness of the important basis of our journey during this life and what it is all about. Yes, it is unquestionable; we’re here for all these experiences, both good and bad so as to acquire the lessons, however, where comes the requirement to disregard or conceal the child within us. We don’t have to wait until we’re elderly and preparing for our new travel in returning to soul. Why wait to re-introduce the kid once we presume nothing really matters at this stage? It’s never too late, whatever age we are at present, to present or bring back that innocent child within us.
I teach in my meditation courses the value of being familiar with the child inside, especially between age 6 and 9 years old. I think by bringing that inner child into our surroundings from time to time allows us the chance to’let loose’ for some time and it does not hurt! Also it’s extremely important to get to know a lot of things about yourself also. I am not suggesting that you live your life as a child would, just manifest and bring some joy to you when want to laugh and discharge some weight you carry throughout the journey of life.
The child and the grandmother looked at me and had a grin on their faces and somehow the ball from the kid came towards me in a means of an invitation to join them. I had the liberty to do so and had a fantastic fun with all the experience. We didn’t talk much at first if like words won’t matter anyhow just enjoy the ride with a happy smile and have some innocent fun. This experience added several questions into my thoughts later on while I continued my walk.
One important question kept coming to my head was that why don’t we have a tiny break from all our hectic schedules, our difficulties, work, daily routine or whatever is occupying us in reality and have some innocent fun with no string attached. I feel that pleasure can be shared between any two people together who enjoy one another’s company. It may bring them in a different level of understanding of one another. I will leave you with that idea for the time being for one to try it on your own. I’ll keep you posted on my progress in this experience because I do have lots of questions which happened in my mind and do not have the answers for. Why not try to have some innocent fun whatsoever? It may be what you must have at the present time.
