Little children recognize that they do not understand what they perceive, and so they ask what it means. – acim
Children are innocent. They don’t assume that they already know. In fact they’re clear that they do not know. And therefore they stay curious. We, adults, lose that natural curiosity and innocence. We just know the answers and think we know how to run our life. Nothing could be farther from the truth. And that’s because everywhere we look adults have made a mess of the world and their lives. If we really knew how to run the world and our lives everything would be peachy-keen, but it’s not. So what’s missing? We refuse to ask and seek help from our divine parent.
