a goose bump moment............


i wrote this as a response to a blog - but then i thought it might be of use here - it was a goose bump moment for me

one day, i meditated with a group of 12 who are part of my energy chain - we met at sunrise - and walked the circle for an hour
chanting the names of those we wish well

in the midst of this - some children who were clearly awake too early for their parents (remember that??) joined the circle - not saying a word, just walking with us. the youngest not more than 18 months with that stiff legged, just learning to walk walk that is so endearing. the oldest perhaps 4 or 5, a little boy with huge dark eyes and the most serious face.

one mother tried to tell her child no, but the child stayed and i smiled that it was okay so mom went back to drinking her coffee and watching - gald for a moment of quiet.

we were nearing the end, not chanting any longer, when the little boy slipped the circle and sat in the middle, his eyes closed. after five more minutes,we slowed and then stopped, turned to the center and as we do, bowed to each other and then to the center -

this little boy, watched carefully and then he stood slowly and bowed as we had done, to each of us. we bowed again, as one, to him. then the circle broke apart.

the kids drifted back to the equipment or to their moms but this little boy just stood there, not moving, and then he lifted his eyes to the sun and bowed one last time

amazing

what comes so easily to children is often so difficult for us as adults - i wonder if it is our sense of shame or being judged that gets in our way

a lesson learned from a little boy with big dark eyes who just did it......cause it felt right

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

Often how we are viewed is one of our biggest hurdles. *sigh* too often we don't speak of how we for fear that someone might not feel as we do. Sometimes ......we worry too much.

I love looking out into the world through the eyes of a child.
Some say, they see through my eyes like that ... I'm still amazed at my surroundings.

Lessons are often taught from a child.

As a teacher of middle school kids from the tough side of life, that is an amazing, beautiful, bizarre story.

We are often regaled to see thorugh the eyes of a child; to free the child within us etc. I think there is good in that as long as we remember that it is we adults who (are supposed to) develop responsibility and wisdom gained from experience and knowledge. I think the trick is not to be overcome by experience or knowledge but to balance those things with sponinaity and play.

I think that child in the center of your circle might be gifted, or perhaps he just had an epiphany and you all were there to support it, but his actions were not the typical actions of a child. Sure would be interesting to see how he progresses through life.

In conclusion, I think we should bless the children and support them and even let them remind us of the good they may bring us. I do not think we should worship them and make them our roll models.

I agree with Panthiest that the child may have a special gift. But children are often more in tune than adults....and they just tend to lose it as they grow older as we do. I love looking at the world through a child's eyes.....it makes me remember that I'm still a child too!


wickedeasy replies on 7/14/2006 6:11 am:
as we mature - we have responsibilities and we need to do things a particular way - sometimes it helps to be reminded tht there are other reasons and other ways

I have learned more from my own children, especially from my 17 year old who is severely disabled and has MRDD than from any college educated adult ever. Children truly know what's really important and what this world is truly about. We tend to forget all too often. A very beautiful story!! -B

why is it that simple joy and acceptance become more difficult as we get older - seems a shame

I love it when children help us to see things in a new way.

My youngest son is an Indigo Child and living with him has taught me so much.

Old soul I'd say...

thanks so much for that story. I needed the reminder that soul will outlast transient bs and that it's beyond noble when you pay attention to it.

Yup...this juiciness is from me....

Wikked I hear you on this I have gotten to the point that I am going to tell how I feel ect no matter how much peopel laugh. I think I would rather have them openly laughing at me than hiding myself for the rest of my life.
But oh its sooooo hard sometimes. Cause I am not very strong you know. I have just enough streangth to keep going it seems. But beauty is beauty and if you think something is pretty ......say so. I find some awful weird things pretty .....but thats ok .....cause they make me smile. *G*
