Being a child

What a glorious day it's been today! I spent the day with a lovely friend who came up on the train from Edinburgh, we chatted and laughed, and laughed and chatted! We also had a few poignant moments as we empathised with each other over the sadder times of our lives.
I love being able to have days with friends when everything and anything can be discussed!
There's something very childlike about the kind of frankness one can share with a friend - but why do we restrict it to our nearest and dearest? Children don't!
Just once in the day surprise yourself by being completely frank to someone you know but are not that close to. This is not about you being offensive of course...I wouldn't want you to put your safety in jeopardy, but say something that is honest and true to what you're feeling at that moment. Notice what you feel when you do that - I find it liberating and fun, I hope you do too! :)

" A child can be a great teacher in your journey toward higher consciousness. A young child can give you a continuous demonstration of what it is like to live in the here and now before the rational mind affects the stream of consciousness." - Ken Keyes, Jr.
