Promise of a new Day

When we are no longer children, we are already dead.
—Konstantin Brancusi—

Children are born into a world whose rules they must learn. As a part of the learning process, children always question rules. For simplicity’s sake, we stop questioning most rules. we’ll walk on sidewalks, eat with forks, talk in sentences, and keep our clothes buttoned. But the children inside us look out with eager eyes and stand ready to question any rule that seems absurd.
Sometimes we bully that interior child into silence, for its questions embarrass us. Sometimes we hide it, sit on it, punish it—but it’s always there. If we put that child to sleep, we lose one of the best parts of ourselves, especially when we’re asked to do something that troubles our conscience. That child needn’t always have its way, but it deserves our love. It was a young child in a crowd of people who said,”But the emperor is naked!”
I will love and nurture the child within me, and I will heed its questions, which may bring me to new answers.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
