~ Albert Einstein
I love how young children never want to stop exploring. They don’t stay anywhere for very long because there’s always more to see around the corner. And we should let them explore, we should encouraged them to follow their curiosities, and we should be there waiting on the other side, ready to catch them if they fall.
Because we don’t want our children to become frightened. We don’t want them to feel all alone in the world.
Einstein says we should never stop questioning. If we do, we lose the spark. Life is no longer filled with wonder and we sleepwalk through our days, blind to miracles and synchronicities. Why can’t adults be more like innocent children? What happens to the awe? When did we start feeling all alone?
But it’s not a lost cause, because we’re not alone, are we? Can you feel it? There’s an underlying current, an energetic chord connecting all of us, weaving the fabric of creation.
Some adults, the ones with real faith, are free. Free to explore, to make mistakes, to push limits, to ask questions. We know that we’re not alone, that the other side is not a scary place, that although this life may be one mystery after another, it is also perfect.
