In Nature Kids Naturally Live the Peace of Being
As adults most of us are aware of the life serving worth and inner joy gifted to us by observing regular moments of silence and stillness; yet still today my personal observations show me that the majority of parents, grandparents and child carers alike are overlooking undeniable fact in the upbringing of children.
I still see it being far more common more for parents and other carers by way of reward, and the accompanied suggestion of pleasure predominantly taking children to busy noisy place rather than into the still wonder of nature and the self.
How many adults today because of the mind made conditioned beliefs of joy and pleasures outer reality struggle to find their God Gifted Inner Peace, – I believe far too many!
If I had been given 10 cents every an adult asked me how to still there, mind, or to meditate, or to find joy in nature, or feel at peace in the midst of our outwardly troubled world I would have a very substantial bank account by now.
Our present struggles become our children’s future struggles – It’s up to us to help ease that burden not created and even larger one.
Peace is a personal pathway. No-one can create a pathway of personal peace for any other but everyone can help make another aware of the presence of inner presence of peace which resides at the centered core of every living being – especially our children included.
Have you ever noticed a still baby silently gazing at the wonder of life? Have you ever noticed its peaceful cooing sounds that accompany these special moments together with the added light of amazement that shines from its eyes? I believe that the light and sound in these moments is born from what a baby feels within – not from that which it observes outside of itself.
We adults one and all are all children’s role models; some of us more directly that others – I am simply asking in these words, what lifestyle are we as role models exemplifying and teaching our children our children.
Maybe, just maybe the nest time any of us consider a day at the movies devoid of sunlight, or crowned indoor café under fluorescent lighting, or a noisy fun park as being the most beneficial reward our children, maybe we should think again!
Those who meet silence converse with the voice of eternity.
Those who are still feel life purposefully move them.
Those who know nature believe in life’s natural magic.
