When Did You Know?

Me25 When did you know? Great Question. Right? So let’s think about that question. When did you know the world was so big? Probably after you were grown. That’s when you realized it was outside of your boundaries, outside your personal space. Or maybe when you were a child, some inner awakening caused you to grasp the size of the world.

When did you know what love felt like? Ah, there is a good question, because there are many types of love. There’s the love of a child, the love of husband and wife, the love for a friend. All these loves are special. I think a child realizes what love feels like if they have parents and grandparents that love them. It creates a special world for them. If you are a parent, you probably felt the true meaning of love, the first time you looked into your new-born baby’s face. You sure felt it, the first time they grabbed hold of your fingers

When did you know you understood life? That one is a two-sided coin. For when we are children we understand it based on our world. As we grow, that world widens and hopefully as we become adults that understanding is enlightened with humility. It’s good however, if we from time to time, look at it through a child’s eyes.

When did you know the right path to take, what your calling was? This question can only be answered if you heard the calling and received the directions. Did you? It’s easier for a child to hear. They are open to endless possibilities. The ears of adults as we become older don’t hear as well the calling or see the possibilities unless–they keep the child alive in themselves.
