A MOMENT IN LIFE FROM A CHILD'S PERSPECTIVE...

A child's mind is extremely creative, for it is free from the insult and scrutiny of the adult world. While children can be cruel amongst themselves, and prone to bearing the sting of other children making fun of them, they are not pressured to dwell in that, nor do they let that stop them. They may run to a parent crying when someone bullies them, or makes fun of them, but, the anguish, usually exaggerated is gone in an instant, as if the very action of telling someone made it go away. I find this extremely interesting, and, feel that, hey, I can do that too. I might not have a parent to run to, but, I can find instant release if I want to. The difference is in the mentality; adults analyze, deliberate, take it to heart, which keeps it in mind, and find then that they cannot get it out of their system. A child just makes a face, cries a few tears, tells someone, and moves on to the next moment. Something which all adults should take notice of for sure...

Living in the moment is all about letting the moment behind go, and not worrying about the moment yet to come. It is about letting the negative of each moment disappear with the moment in which it appeared. It sounds easy doesn't it? Of course, we all know that it is not, yet, if we could train ourselves to live like this, we could face each present moment so much more fully, and we would not have all the excess baggage to haul around, which would mean more freedom of movement or action, or thought, or being able to fully enjoy the time at hand...

In times such as we are living, when there is unrest, insecurity, lack of stability, and great stress, we could benefit greatly from watching a child as they handle their situations. Of course, they do not have the reasoning powers we do, still, they are pretty good at fulfilling that which occurs to them, and that which they want or need. They are fascinating little people, always finding a solution for their dilemmas, even if it means that someone might make fun of them, or that ultimately, that solution is not going to work, for the moment at hand, it does, and that is all a child is concerned with, which is actually, how it should be....
