Space and Time

It has been a while since I have scribbled. As I sat locked up in my own thoughts, I had this wonderful insight.They say a child chooses its parents. I tell you, it is true. Try and imagine this with respect to the concept of space and time. A mother is space and a father is time. It is the other way round for a girl.

Extending like the two axes in each dimension, they overlook your progress in this world. They are the very frames of reference from your origin, nee arrival in this world.

The mother’s love is boundless, vast and welcoming like space. She provides the gospel and an enclave around your life.

A father teaches you to be punctual, meticulous, consistent like time. Gives you what you need, as does time.Every sentinel being chooses it’s space and time ahead of it’s birth.

To be a like a child … and not childish!

” There is a great difference between being like a child, and being childish”

A child is often used as an example by many spiritual leaders, self-management advocates in their books and speeches. We often hear them say “be like a child” or “do not let the child within you die” and so on. What does it mean?Before we attempt to question the meaning of the metaphor, let us first analyze the need of such a statement. A child is closer to the beginning of life, it is a simpler version, less thought crowded and more observant version of a grown up. It is also very submissive to life The use of this example prompts us to be simpler in life.

Most children try to do or actually do the things they are told not to. So does this mean “be like a child”. Yes! and No!

Most children act without a prior thought to the consequence of the action. Does this mean “be like a child”. Yes! and No!
