My good friend Emma once said that it takes great courage to be a child. And I couldn’t think of a better way to say how I feel about the issue.
Looking down upon kids is about the dumbest thing I know and shows how unconfident many adults are. By being playful, kids are innocent and show their true color. To be exposed like that takes courage and children who have yet not extinguished that sense of excitement go through the battle of finding their boundaries every day.
Adults have lost this courage and think it means being an adult. Kids have a natural tendency for this because the unconditioned mind acts in a natural way. Moreover an adult that keeps his playfulness is someone who has continued the battle for a natural being through the difficult boundaries of this world.
Be courageous, be a kid!
