Live like a child
Live like a child. A child does not think about death. A child looks forward to life.
A child is always longing to belong, to have friends and to be happy. A child craves to mature. So grow in prosperity and security. Be mature and embrace the meaning of maturity.
Do not live in fear of rejection. Share your happiness, prosperity and abundance. Be nice. Be kind. As you exit this corporeal life, leave something behind of yourself for posterity, for others to grow and learn from.
Since the creation of humans, children have always lived with a positive attitude. All over the world, children start with the same blessings. Children played. Children loved. Most of all they learned. Learning can be for the positive or the negative. The behavior of adults have an impact on the growth of the children. The bitterness and anger of the adults are easily passed on to the children. But the same is true about all the positive and good behavior. Somehow the negatives are always easier to learn. The children learned the material advantages of segregation, prejudice and deprivation. This breeds vanity and greed. The educated adults feed the children’s minds with the idea of “the end of times” or “armageddon”. The child grows up to be an adult, then the cycle continues. Break the cycle of bitterness. Let the cycle be about prosperity, sharing, love and happiness.
The greatest teacher of all said, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.” There will always be good in humanity and there is always hope, because God blesses humanity with the innocence of children. Every generation is born with a clean slate. This is the cycle of life. This is humanity’s perpetual cycle of hope.
Let us not blame solely the new generation for their failures. We the old generation have our hands in the guilty pot. So, let us teach our children how to be nice and for those who have the talent to write or build, leave something good behind as a foundation for them to learn from. Because the future is not preordained and their choices will create their future.
As an adult you will face challenges, defeats, heartaches, betrayal, loneliness, rejection, and bullies who will do their best to deprive, cheat, insult and put you down. But close your eyes, let your mind focus and find that child in you and rise.
