What do you see when you look at yourself in a mirror? A gruesome, worn-out adult or someone filled with exuberance and innocence of a child? In reality, we’re all still a child from inside but we keep putting on layers of etiquettes, hypocrisy, hassle, worries etc. as we grow up. Didn’t we all fancy growing up as a child? But has that sheen remained unadulterated even now? If your answer is ‘No’, do not worry, there’s a chance to become childlike once again.
Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan says- A child does things without any understanding. Doesn’t the worldly life continue for a child even though he has no worldly understanding? The child’s life runs very well. In fact, his worldly life gets worse as he begins to understand.
Along with growing up in age, our ego also starts becoming bigger and bigger. That ego says, I don’t want to be straight and I want to do things in my own way. Unfortunately, this becomes the reason for forming the layers over our childlike self. It all begins with the wrong understanding of, ‘I am Peter’ or ‘I am Daisy’ which gradually keeps expanding to include things like, ‘I am a father’, ‘I am a doctor’, ‘I am a daughter’ etc.
On this Children’s Day, let us all take the first step to remove the veils of ignorance of being someone that you aren’t and know our true Self once again.
Happy Children’s Day to all!
