There are certain truths about children that we all seem to hold. Children are our future. They are entrusted to us. They are unique individuals and are not just little versions of ourselves. They are innocence. They are joy. They give reason and purpose to our lives. They keep us young.
In Sahaja Yoga Meditation, we hold all these things as true. And something quite a bit more.
Children are here to teach us, as much as we are here to teach them. What do they teach us? Unbinding love is one thing. They love us without conditions, without reservations. They trust us because they know they are from us and we are with them. We are on their side and they are on ours.
Children are simple, in the present and they are spontaneous. These are all qualities valued in Sahaja Yoga Meditation. It doesn’t mean we should be child-like. We should act our age, but we should also try to imbibe those three qualities exemplified in children: simplicity, spontaneity and the ability to live in the moment.
