I am is in a constant state and in a permanent change. I am here, I am living in the moment and I am aware. This is not a condition that changes overnight, though: our being constantly undergoing changes from one moment to another. What defined me yesterday is no longer quite what defines me today and what will define me in just a few seconds. Besides, what defines me? Set involves putting limits on what I am and to determine a precise and definitive description. In perpetual motion, is it really possible to define a being in its entirety? Just like a child, a human being, regardless of age, is in a constant stage of learning and evolution. Man’s school is none other than life itself. And if life is a school, whose is his master? The Universe. By observing the Universe, the human being learns about himself and about the world and takes the time to learn and understand that it is not so different from the Universe, as could the or pretend to believe if it takes into account only what his eyes see.
In general, we could say that what defines a being is its accumulation of experiences, actions undertaken and thoughts he has expressed throughout his life. Finally … in theory, it could well be, but we all know that very few people really care about the thoughts that we emit, preferring to associate ourselves with the debts we have accumulated or not!
Nowadays, many are still to be interested and to define you by the richness of your bank account rather than the richness of your thinking, kindness and imagination! This way of thinking is more attached to the past beings that at present; it takes no account of the change and development of men and situations; and it condemns any human being to be defined by all of its past actions. But we all know we’re not limited to what we experienced! This does absolutely not define us entirely, it only defines a situation at a time T that spawned action and reaction of our being. We are much more than all the mistakes we have committed and will continue to commit because they are an integral part of our teaching and help us to be each day more our true identity. All actions can be defined at the moment they were made. These actions are more attached to our being, but that we were on time. And these actions will be designed to continually repeat itself as we will operate no real change of our being. Change that will transform our lives and leave room for evolution and annihilating these recurring situations which have no purpose that reflect us what you think. As long as we will not accept a new vision of ourselves and the world, as we do not embrace change: we will remain rooted in the limits of time and space and all our old demons will re eventually surface.
To me, the only true definition of what we are is that we are all children of the Universe. It is a constant of the Universe whose space and time have no influence: We are eternal children, regardless of our age, we will always be children in the eyes of the Universe.
When suggested that I take a particular nationality, I usually respond: “How important? I am an inhabitant of the Earth. The origins, nationalities, cultural differences… I see no barriers, no boundaries. I consider myself primarily as a world citizen, as a child of the universe.” Let now the question: “Who are you?” to anyone. What will he respond? It certainly begin to announce their name and surname, date and place of birth, etc. From the moment we do not see that through this flow of ephemeral and trivial information, we impose limits and define our being through futile descriptions that will never reveal exactly what we really are. The way of thinking and act now reveal much more about a person than anything she could have lived before. Thus, we remain open to the field of all possibilities and we can perceive beings as they are in that moment. Tomorrow, they will perhaps longer the same. But what remains constant is that we are all involved in a constant process of learning about ourselves and the world around us.
Our only limits are those we create. We are our own limit. We could also consider boundary or envelope of protection that borrowed body that constantly filter the information so that we can live our human experience by exploring new directions and new dimensions, adapted to our vision and reach of children.
At the school of life
Life is the school of being who learns to become human or the human who learns to be – what it always was: a representation of the universe materialized for the best return. This is not so surprising to see so many disoriented beings by space, time and dimension so dense that they forget their origin. The challenges they face throughout their lives do not happen to destabilize or go against their will, they take place because they go against themselves and refuse to be in the image of the Universe: unlimited beings, creative and full of love.
A child is in the age of innocence. It is simply, without thinking about all the ideas and values we have acquired through our education, environment and personal experiences. They are the purest beings that we can meet here on earth. They feel no malice and when they smiled, they happily refer you a smile in return. A child is the universe at its purest: a concentration of energy and love that gracefully spreads light around. Children have so much to teach us! Do not forget that every experienced this state of innocence (and goodwill). Some lose growing up, but it is ingrained in us forever. When I see suffering beings, I see their inner child lovesick. We keep all our child’s soul, there are only our changing body physically. Growing up, we obviously aware of many things, but our inner child remains in us and follows us like a shadow. And if we neglect its importance, it can not act positively on our lives. We need to listen and provide light, hence the interest to realize his dreams. Our real evolution is to return to basics. This essence represented through the eyes of a child who does not judge and reflects unconditional love.
Human beings are in a constant learning process. And all stages of his life inevitably lead him to better respond to the question “Who am I?” I really find meaning at the end of our existence. Whatever the circumstances are, high energy drives the human being and encourages him to live his experiences and to surpass themselves, to push back its own limits. Whatever he may live, he will never be alone, because the universe is constantly watching over him and guide.
All events that we live help us to grow, to mature and have opportunities to evolve. We can decide to go against life and therefore against yourself or we can decide to follow the example of our great mother or father figure: the Universe. The universe will never bear judgments against the choices we decide to do, we are our own judge, altering, or allowing slowing our progress in this instructive cycle. Our fear of greatness, the other, the outside world prevents us to grow as we could if our fear does not govern our heart. Is not our creative power we fear? A child with too much power in the hands and a great responsibility, would not he afraid? It certainly deny this power, preferring to remain a little longer in the innocence of childhood. Is it not the case for the majority of people? Our conscience knows much more than we could pretend, but we want to stay a little longer unconscious of our true origin. Yet mindfulness delivers us from all our suffering. And man, in full consciousness, understand that it is nothing but a child of the universe and that the whole Universe is reflected in his eyes.
We all hang childhood injuries and our whole life is built according to the love that we have received or not as a child. How many of us secretly keep these wounds heal thinking they forgetting? The only remedy that can heal our open wounds is definitely love. It is not necessary that this love comes from the other, it must first come from himself. Who better than oneself is able to overcome this lack that makes us believe that we are incomplete beings? We have within us all necessary resources since we are in the image of the universe. Like a child learning to walk in the right direction and in the best conditions, everything we need to be aware in the right direction is to be trusted. Everything is perfect in the order of things in the universe. Let us trust Him and live every experience knowing they are always full of good sense. Love in all circumstances: this is probably the best explanation of what we have come to learn! As long as love does not surpass all the suffering and the differences of men, they remain eternal growing children and live Repeatedly phase of the crisis of adolescence!
Like every child, man, conscious or unconscious, do what he thinks is right and just. We all do our best on Earth. Each evolves at its own pace and needs time to recognize. Do not judge us too harshly and accept us as we are: beings evolving, free to choose who we want to be. Our deepest being, he will always remain the same: an integral part of the universe, a child who needs love and light to grow and become the best version of himself.
