i'm growing up just to be a child again.

Besides the fact that i have not blogged here in a while, i have been thinking a lot about what living really means.

i was thinking back to adam and eve. before they messed up, and afterwards.
i pondered about what it would be like in the perfect world - how they were with each other, how they behaved, walked, talked, loved...

i mean, God created adam and eve perfectly. and i just can't seem to grasp what that means...
...but i may understand a little better (just a tad) now...

it came to me while listening to a song on the "Where The Wild Things Are" soundtrack...

they were like children.

living without shame, careless, in love with every little thing, easily amazed, and completely trusting God. i mean, they could physically see God...walking side by side with him...


only the spirit of a child can be so trusting...the kind of spirit undamaged and unhurt...

and the deeper i thought, the more amazed and shocked and speechless i became.
so, if i get it correctly, as deception creeped in, doubt entered in, and as the sin became existent...
adam and eve "ate" knowledge.

this is where it all became clear...

they became adult-like.

all of a sudden, they realized they were naked, were ashamed, and afraid.
it is then, that God was no longer so tangible...

i'm not saying that being an adult is a sin, ha - of course not.
but i do believe that the heart was and is created to be a child, always.

that's the way God intended us - to be a child, perfectly.

and that's the way we are to be...

in this conversation, God revealed to me a piece of Jesus i didn't know before -
his sacrifice was to reconciliate his brothers and sisters (us) to Daddy God.
i didn't really understand "reconciliation"...until now.

he became the bridge to the child spirit.
he became the bridge to true freedom. to dance. to sing. to be joyful always. to trust fully.
...and to walk once again, side by side.

i've now realized the goal to living; the new way of being human: be a child.
be courageous! dream big. don't fear. live freely. live in love and amazed by all.
live...side by side with Your Daddy.

after all, Jesus did say, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." Luke 18:16-17
i'm growing up just to be a child again...

ps. ...the song i mentioned:
Karen O and the Kids "All Is Love"
