“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” ~ Jesus.
“Being the valley of the world, eternal virtue will never desert you, and you become like a little child anew.” ~ Lao Tzu.
The adult loses empathy and creativity, harmony and innocence, as he grows up. He loses the child-like mind. Why…??
Because, sometimes unconsciously so, everything he/she thinks is allowed to be egoistical and selfish. And The Bible’s nonsense gets into the growing mind. And the domination of politics forms the character of the adult.
And the likes and dislikes become a part of his delusion and influence from society. All due to knowledge, the content of the adult’s mind is polluted, his brain not working properly but obeying a new structure.
Due to the adult’s habits the chemistry of the brain is different, intelligence is overpowered by absurd intellect, no compassion exists unless it brings self-satisfaction. And what about obsessions and fears?? They are now the whole life of the unconscious ones.
So, to go back to the child state is to choose empathy over ego, and to choose freedom over beliefs and knowledge, and to choose health over selfish desires. When you do this, the adult brain transforms and a miracle happens. To find out what this miracle is, whether you understand it or not, is why you are here.
