It doesn’t take much to make a human body but it takes a tremendous courage to grow a human being. We have outgrown our ability to be with our need to do through our fear to experience. Yes, you can read this again one more time…
The child is the be-ist, the adult is the do-er and in between lies the experiencer. Humanity, caught in its need to master Life, has forgotten that true mastery isn’t about finding the right recipe for life, but more so knowing that the right ingredients are always provided at the right moment and right time to make the most delicate version of a slice of Life.
Childhood is such an essential time to create a chef, not because the child will know the ingredients but because the child dares to try. Her nature is curious and the only way for her to connect with her environment is by experimenting how things work, mix, break, stick, spill, smell, touch, feel and so on…
A child isn’t an ignorant being that has everything to learn. She is a fearless genius of creativity.
To give a child a space to experiment life is to guide a soul to realize her greatest potential and grow an adult whose vision of possibility will go beyond the given boundaries.
The space the child needs is founded on unconditional love. Its walls are made of respect and non-judgment. It takes a lifetime to reveal one’s gift but when the discovery begins at birth then the revelation becomes a path.
Everyone holds a child within, an explorer with a vivid imagination or a adventurer with a taste for laughter and dreams. Childhood isn’t a space between 0 and 12 years old. Childhood is a space within the heart.
Let your heart remind you how to access the book of recipes to your Life and give yourself permission to cook something new with the blessings with which Life has granted you.
