What will we do with it?
How will we make a difference?
Everyday I get to play with children.
Everyday I get to see the world through their eyes.
Children are one of the purest reflections of ourselves,
and they show us where and who we really are.
So everyday I get to reconsider my thoughts and beliefs,
my values and how I interact with the world I have created.
If we can tune into what children have to share,
we can find new pathways to engage in a life of joy,
unencumbered by the biases and limitations we have picked up along the way.
Children bring a fresh perspective.
If we can find it within ourselves to stay out of their way,
instead of trying to get them to fit into our already dysfunctional world,
we can gain great insight into new, more empowered and spirit filled ways.
I wrote this series to bring to light the "normal" things we do to children that are all based on "the way things are", and provide some solutions on how we can make change within ourselves that will give rise to a freer, more joyous life for the generations to come. When children arrive on this planet, much of their life's plan is already laid out for them, just by being a part of this culture. We really have no idea what a free child looks like, as they are indoctrinated with the ideas and beliefs of those around them. As there are no pure examples readily available, it's difficult to fathom the possibilities. I believe questioning everything is the only answer so we can tune into more enlightened and empowered perspectives, and that it is our duty and responsibility to put them into action by standing up and being the change.
This is the way I will invest my energy.
This is one way I will make a difference today.

I hope to have inspired you to rethink the unsustainable "normal" life we provide for our children, and to search for the realization that we are the power in making change. Let's lay down our ideas, all the "shoulds", "have-tos" and "musts" we believe in, and observe the children.
Let's set ourselves and the children FREE!
