Awakening to Your Inner Child
Deep in your heart dwells the Miracle Child.
When you were first born, you were that Child. Everyone was
your friend. You knew no enemies. The natural state of the child
is love. We are taught to hate, to divide, to own.
It is quite possible that you were carefully
trained to think like others. In school you have studied books
of history, memorized "important dates" of wars and
treaties, battles and victories. All this to pass a test and
to move to the next grade and then to the next. And there probably
was no question in your mind. Oh, you may not have appreciated
the homework and the days of study and toil, but you most likely
accepted the way. And when it was time to graduate, you wore
the hat of graduation. People clapped and shook your hand and
wished you success.
What are the possibilities when children do
not believe in the history books and find no reason to memorize
dates of wars and rebellions? What happens to our carefully
thought out system of education and plans for survival?
What are the answers when children find the
present mode of education boring and even not true?
As teachers and parents, what can we do about
The Indigo Children, Children of the New World
(or new system!) have come to earth to realize with us that
the present system in which we find ourselves must be changed.
The questions the children ask are challenging the very roots
of our way of life.
"What use is it to me to know the dates
of world conflicts?" "Why is it important for me to
memorize and memorize when I have so much knowledge in me?" "Why do you insist on teaching me what is good and what
is bad, when I know myself that we are all a family made in
goodness and in love?" "Why can't I, the Indigo Child,
teach you, for I have much to give and much to share."
When we can approach the New Child in our classroom,
home and community in the knowledge that they do have much to
give, the wonders of true education will be experienced between
child and teacher, child and parent.
By awakening to your Inner Child, and permitting
your Magical Child to fill your awareness, you will draw the
New Children to you. They will trust you, and through this trust
that they have in you will be born a living school of intelligence
and creative genius. A school born of the Inner Child.
