A Blessed Acknowledgement

Credit: Barkha Dhar
Its my child's first attempt at coloring. My post is an acknowledgement so I feel his coloring picture is best suited to my post.

Our children’s serenity has an invisible power. To amplify such power we need to be conscious to team up with our little ones to be positive change agents for the community and the society.

My toddler boy’s ethereal psyche as my chariot of change each day pulls me inward to spiritual spunk. Listening to his innocent and enigmatic expressions often seems like divine recital. Such platonic relationship between a mother and her child is a route to bliss and benign emotions. My first born, whose plush gazes and fervent heart that has uniform feelings for birds, animals and all living beings, is my pioneer retreat to a conscious state. His playful and magical enchantments is realization that children as god’s cherubs are the hymns of nature. Their eternal kindle illuminates our life with love, hope, care and courage.

At a nascent age children have the capacity to sense parent’s changing colors. They are the midget stars of a celestial empire. They show us that enthusiasm and excitement are unique ways to subsist. Nurturing a child is like rearing an angel. Their magnificent innocence instills that surrendering to god is a mode of attuning to self. With their wish lists to celebrate life our children signify the ‘power of now’ as a distinctive hallmark of living mindfully. Their glee as the adornment of our joy and a veil for sorrow helps us steer through transitions in life. As our significant couplers they are a mirror to our solemn state. They are the best cohorts one can have. With their mesmerizing ways they help expound on the fact that God resides in all, irrespective of abilities. As parents honoring these angelic protégés is respecting righteousness to commune with god.

Our children’s serenity has an invisible power to incapacitate any negativity or prejudice that could impair the aura of our home and the peace in familial relationships. As parents fostering devotion and karma through the principles of good and bad actions, early on, in our children can make their lives more meaningful as they grow older and independent. We parents are a child’s harbinger to this world. Through our spiritual chalk talk we can share chaste lessons that God is omnipresent and one. Among the poor, he is a destitute; among the rich he is opulent. Such teachings help imbibe transparency in faith and equal respect for all religion. Giving a boon to children’s apostolic self also advances their spontaneity and theological desires later in life.

As parents, especially a mother who is a child’s first guide, such discourses with our children not only incite them to a new way of life but also awaken us to a new state of mind. Such precepts for our children become conscious alerts for us in turn. Charting a child’s life with honesty, truth and wisdom hence becomes a mother’s poise. Any deterrence of self from such tranquility and serenity that we want to blossom in our children hinders the opportunity to set ourselves as model of transcendental values and religious beliefs. Recognizing this altruism in a parent-child relationship is an inspiration to learn from a child’s immaculateness and clear conscience. As parents internalizing a child’s superego through these moral principles helps them to be positive change agents in community and society. Such incorporeal narrations between us and our children enable us to control our own ego and maintain a balance between our material and spiritual self. As revered Osho once said, “The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The women existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.” Thanks indeed to my son who made me one.

Thank you Cher for your stimulating comment. I find my child's innocence to be a profound memoir. And as you rightly said May all mothers have similar benevolence. It's truly a blessed feeling!

Thanks

Great article here. A philosopher said that a child is not a small man but a young of man, that a child is the father of man. Once given a complete and satisfacory education, a child grows into a complete man. So we have to give them positive assistance to help them grow well. As I can see the graffiti of your child, I feel really happy. From darkness, we reach the light. Children have lots of things we should help the develop. Mothers like you know more and even better the joy a child brings to the parents; for this reason we should not hinder them from freedom of learning but rather push them to learn a lot, based on a positive culture.

Hey Devin,

I simply love the way you have compared a youth's and a child's perspective on playground. That's is so true. And yes children certainly are an inspiration and can be mighty change agents. Its for the parent to understand such spark in a child.

With Best

What can I say Mugisho. It seems you have read my mind. Children are like plants that need nourishment and nurturing. With such guidance they become navigators of their own life one day. This is a fact that your comment so intelligently illuminates. Thanks for your time and patience.

Aw melody...that's an angelic experience. Our children do have a glorified presence and aura. Your experience is an evidence to that. For us mothers our children are the greatest blessing on earth and that's what inspired me to write an acknowledgement for my toddler son.

Thanks
