“To learn to play, seriously, is one of the great secrets of spiritual exploration.”~ Rachel Pollack
Children are natural explorers. They see things with fresh, uninhibited eyes that savor and revisit their experiences often. Working with these little adventurers reminds me that even though I have lived a while, I am not always living. As an adult, I often forget what it means to just be in the moment and especially, how to re-visit those moments of sheer joy.
The little ones I work with and others who are in my life, remind me that life is a quest, but not one which the final destination is most important. This voyage is more about the steps, the inventing and reinventing yourself as you connect with others on similar paths.
So push yourself with open eyes. Smile at the gifts around you and enjoy the view as you climb the mountains of life.
