Verbal Confirmation

October 2, 2014 Leave a comment

To be, to have, to think, to move – which of these verbs is the one you feel most connected to? Or is there another verb that characterizes you better?

More than all the other verbs I would place ‘To be’ on the top of my list.  The quality of being present of being aware and living in the moment makes life wonderful.  This is an innate quality that we all have as children but somehow we tend  to neglect as we grow up.

A child is a bundle of energy jumping from task to task with effortless ease.  Even after hours of play they do not want to stop.  The reason is they are lost in the present moment and fully enjoy whatever they do.   Children play like there is no tomorrow.

Who  does not love an innocent child?  They have no qualms about the future.  They are always honest and say what is on their mind.  They also do not build walls of discrimination based on colour, caste or creed.  Their love is unconditional.

Have you seen a child cry one moment and burst into laughter the very next moment?  They do not brood over trivial quarrels or misunderstandings.  They are able to forgive and forget.  This is one important lesson that we can learn from children.

Children are known to laugh a great deal more than adults.  Cartoons, comic books, jokes and mimicking are the best part of childhood. This keeps them intrinsically motivated and it also inspires and changes the mood of all around them.

Children do not bring any preconceived notions or prejudices.  So they are always full of wonder and curiosity.   As adults we have to learn to unlearn.  Our false notions and egoistic beliefs stand in the way of our quest for truth.

I would like to be myself and be present in the moment like a child .  I would like to fill my moments  with enthusiasm , love and positive energy and share this love and energy with the world around me.
