Much can be achieved if adults learn from the openness and spontaneity of children. Seeing life through a child’s eyes – marvelling at every new experience, living immersed in what’s happening in that moment, quickly regaining balance after emotional upsets – is a useful tool for jaded adults. Children can be as much teachers to adults as adults are to children. This recognition brings renewed respect for the dignity of children. Being child-like (as opposed to childish) can be a great release from the rational mind, especially if it’s coupled with the wisdom of “soul-consciousness”. People with “soul-consciousness” could be defined as humans with a heightened sense of love, altruism, compassion and interconnectedness. This outer expression is demonstrative of an inner evolution: the movement beyond the rational mind into the realm of the transrational.
