Return To Innocence!!!

Children are beautiful because they possess something that we have all lost – the quality of innocence.

Kyaraa Doll house

When I watch my 3 year old daughter, Kyaraa, playing for an hour with her Barbie singing to herself, I know I see it… that’s innocence.
Innocence goes deeper than ignorance. It is some mysterious operation of the imagination, the part that can enter mental universes from which one is soon to be forever excluded.

A child can teach adult a lot:

  • To be happy for no reason
  • To be always be curious
  • To fight tirelessly for something
  • To be focused
  • To be imaginative

The innocence of children is their wisdom. It makes them stand out. There is magic of creativity and curiosity in their innocence. There is joy of freedom and happiness in childhood. In their innocent eyes, dreams are born. Let’s learn from children and return to innocence.

I love this song Return To Innocence… It reminds me how this world needs to learn art of innocence. How we need to return to our self.

Thank you for reading ❤️

    As an educator for over 20 years, I brought board games, origami, and taught plays in class. As kids, we didn’t have computers, and the television only had 4 or 5 stations, Saturday Cartoons and the odd movie being the only reason to stay indoors, then out we went. I talk about that a lot on my site, and enjoy the creativity of so many people here, like you. I remember wandering outdoors, with friends, looking for bugs and putting some in jars with holes in the lids. I remember watching caterpillars for a long time, discovering some making cocoons, then going inside to read about them in the children’s encyclopedias. I remember selling baked goods. I remember tree tag, tree forts, creating bikes out of dumpster parts, then using the wood found for those tree forts. The games we would invent. The endless hours on bicycles, skateboards, and playing basketball or other backyard games. Origami. Popsicle boats, floating them down gutters in the rain. Mud pies. Jumping in puddles, then hearing about it when we got home (I don’t remember ever being punished for this.). Climbing trees, tree tag, and finding fruits in some (This is how I discovered I was alergic to mango. Oh, I could eat one or two, but three brought a serious rash. So I eat one or two.). Frisbee golf before there was such a game. Backyard golf with baseball bats. Digging the bark of some trees to see what’s underneath, then learning not to strip too much of the bark. Looking under rocks. Digging a tunnel to China, because we thought we could. Play acting. Pretend War, which is no longer pc. And in our younger times, the sprinkler was great in the summer. It goes on and on. And all without electronics. Have fun with your kids. Realize there’s so much fun waiting to be had, you don’t need the time off we’ve been taught to have. Actually, if you enjoy, the time with your children will actually energize you, and bake time becomes fun time.

    I don’t know who John Lydon is but I think he meant ‘childlike’ rather than ‘childish’ – there is a definite difference between those two words. From The Grammarist – “Childish and childlike (each one word, unhyphenated) have roughly the same definition—of, like, or related to a child or childhood—but childish has negative connotations, and childlike usually does not. Childish is often synonymous with words like infantile, immature, silly, juvenile, and foolish, all of which are usually negative. Childlike is closer to words like innocent, trusting, unfeigned, and pure, which are not negative.” (https://grammarist.com/usage/childish-childlike/)

    In the gospel of Mathew it’s said:

    Matthew 18:2-4 King James

    2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

    3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    Very nice post, we enjoyed. ::-)
