Shine like children do

This cannot be true. It must be from a horror movie. And still no.. not even in a movie people would treat children like this.

Now there’s a lot of crazy movies out there but reality often is more crazy. It’s so crazy we all need to shut off emotions and feelings. Feeling every day becomes too hard. So therefore we shut down. That’s why the police can come to school and teach children on how to be arrested properly.

Oh my. This is for real.

I wonder if the kids are allowed to role-play and what would happen – ouch, veeery dangerous. “I wanna be good when I grow up and I wanna be a police officer.” That’s a nice thought if the situation was normal but in this perspective – teaching young kids how to be arrested on one hand and teaching children how to handle fire-arms on the other is so wrong (I saw a documentary on that a couple of years ago – have no reference at the moment). That’s a recipe for creating monsters. In fact, it’s creating exactly the future that the police wants to avoid. It’s so narrow minded I can’t find words to describe it.

The forgotten children

All these so called grown-ups are forgotten children that has lost the capacity of proper feeling-good emotions and they have stopped living (the true sense) when they left school. And still they haven’t recovered.

Look at psycho Breivik. He died as a child but grew up becoming a monster. About the same level of saneness as Adolf Hitler. We cannot let any child die mentally – in this age it will have enormous consequences. It had in the 1930s and 1940s and how the world is working today one single person can create global disaster(s).

Taking care of resources

Today we are in a transition phase globally – we are leaving the industrial age entering the era of humanity. The era of humanity in symbiosis with planet Earth. We need to become grateful of what we have, and what we have achieved. And we need to take care of those left out. And most of all we need to take care of everyone new to this world and teach them how to learn comprehensively for themselves, for their fellow humans and for the future of our planet. Everyone is a valuable, awesome resource that should be enabled to help out. A child cannot be a problem or an issue. It’s like an uncut diamond.

New times

In an industrial society it’s ok with some loss in the process. Ok, we graduated 70%, 25% became ok robot-like people and only 5% became homeless or criminals that we need to be protected from (the numbers are just numbers). That’s some pretty good numbers. Homeless children (grown-up children) are not OK. Children ending up as drug addicts are not ok. Children ending up in prison is NOT ok. Children sent to wars are not ok. We are all children and children with dreams. There are today millions of unhappy children placed in prisons. Former children who had their dreams as young, died on the way growing up and ended up completely wasted by society. Human waste. This tears me up everyday. Not to mention those 1000 children dieing EVERY hour according to UNICEF. We need to start dealing with this. It should be a duty dealing with it every day instead of sitting bored in school on Ritalin or some other Governance drug. Use the energy and awesomeness of young people instead of killing them – see your own frigging potential. WAKE UP!!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
