Do it NOW : A child knew it long before NIKE


0

As we celebrate Children’s Day in India today, let’s salute a precious quality that makes a child a child. Their ability to live in the present moment without any effort! This is one quality which all adults desperately want to emulate.

We tend to postpone while a child wants it NOW

The one who postpones the most is a perfectionist… and a perfectionist worries about others’ opinion

 A child wants it NOW, will do it NOW; It does not worry about failure and cares two hoots about others’ opinion.  Imagine if this child were to carry this attitude as it grows in life. Applying this natural principle in all that it does can contribute enormously to its self growth and achievement as a human being for its family and society.

We were all children once and had this natural quality in us. Where did it disappear?

A child-like intellect, free of stress and inhibitions, doubts all negatives, while a stressed intellect of the adult doubts the positive and readily believes the negative. As long as we had this child-like intellect, we went with the flow – doing everything naturally and in the present moment. It allowed us to forgive and forget and get on with enthusiasm as events came and went in our lives..

How can we get this back now in our adult lives? Simple, by reversing the process of adulteration, moving back to our nature as a child. This adulteration is caused due to stress and getting rid of stress can help us get back to our child-like nature

This is the biggest lesson I learnt from the Art of Living courses and Sri Sri‘s knowledge and guidance over the last decade. As I bring up my two daughters and learn to imbibe these qualities from them, Sri Sri’s wisdom has helped me balance work, family, teaching and serving – in the present moment.

  1. Yes, naturalness is the best. Sri Sri often says He is a child who has not grown up. I guess thatswhy He is the perfect guide to help us get back to our child like nature of being in the present moment, naturally

  2. Nice piece Muraliji. Sri Sri often says that He is a child who has not grown up. I guess that’swhy He is the perfect guide for helping us to get back to living in the present moment
