We were all children, perhaps we are grown-up children now, but in the process of growing up, we have almost lost or perhaps some external factors have made us forget or abandon the child in us.
When we talk to people, most of them, I am not saying all, but most say that they have had a wonderful childhood. It doesn’t mean that they had better facilities than what they are using now, or better gadgets, or were in a better financial position, or had better. It doesn’t mean that they travelled more than they do now, or that they are richer now, but it is because of the kind of joyful innocent perspective that children have.
As children we opened our eyes with absolute curiosity, we questioned the obvious, we were curious about this wonderful world, whether it was the moon, a leaf, a flower, a cat, a house, an aeroplane, a kite, or ice-cream. We had lots and lots of questions about them, we kept asking questions, and we were continuously updating ourselves. We were not worried about the future or had regrets about the past when we were children. We didn’t have financial projections to stick to! We had fights with friends but the next day we hugged the same friend, we didn’t keep any grudges, we enjoyed every scoop of ice-cream we had, we loved playing in the mud, walking in the rain and watching cartoons.
When we grow up the influence of external agencies transform us and make us behave in a different manner but ultimately we remain the same child, a biologically and intellectually grown-up child.
Masters say that to make our lives a beautiful, valuable and cherishable one like our childhood, the only way is to awaken the child in ourselves and have fun. When you are chasing tasks and targets, it’s quite okay to drop by an ice-cream shop and have a couple of scoops of ice-creams, it’s okay call your friend with whom you haven’t talked for many years for whatever petty reason.
It’s okay to sing and swing an umbrella while walking around when it rains. It is okay to be like a child and today I am gratefully remembering, appreciating, and acknowledging the child inside me.
