Like Little Children
When Jesus said whoever does not receive the Kingdom of God as a little child cannot enter it, what did he mean?
Think about little children --- innocence, non judgment of themselves and others, an intrinsic joy, seeing the world through eyes of wonder and amazement, staying in the moment, enjoying the very simple things like playing pretend games, no worry or fear, loving unconditionally.
This is how each of us is born until we are "indoctrinated" by our parents beliefs and fears and those of the world. We learn that we cannot love unconditionally, that we cannot trust everyone, that the world is to be feared in some way, that life is not this magical existence --- how very sad for each of us.
But life is this magical existence, because behind all appearances of hate, evil, an greed, lies Love, lies wonder, lies the joy that you have and are by virtue of your Oneness with God and the Kingdom He/She has given you. For it is only your perception and beliefs, your self judgment, that blocks your recognition that He is expressing through you and that your joy is His joy.
