Children, in a very real sense, have beginners’ minds, open to wider possibilities. They see the world with fresh eyes, are less burdened with preconception and past experience, and are less guided by what they know to be true. They are likely to pick up details that adults might discard as irrelevant.*
May the Angel of Awakening stir your heart
To come alive to the eternal within you,
To all the invitations that quietly surround you.**
So many things in this day are familiar, there are so many things on my mind, and I have so many things to do – and it isn’t 8am yet.
But this day is a wonderful thing, full of new delight and hope and possibility.
