Unadulterated wisdom

“But the adult is not the highest stage of development. The end of the cycle is that of the independent, clear-minded, all-seeing Child. That is the level known as wisdom. When the Tao te Ching and other wise books say things like, "Return to the beginning; become a child again" that's what they are referring to. Why do the enlightened seem filled with light and happiness like children? Why do they sometimes even look and talk like children? Because they are. The wise are Children Who Know. Their minds have been emptied of the countless minute somethings of small learning and filled with the great wisdom of the Great Nothing, the Way of the Universe.”

-Benjamin Hoff-

As children,
we are tapped into our intuition,
never knowing or understanding its meaning.

Blank slates, free of judgement;
In a space and time
when our original 5 senses ,
led us to moments of unfiltered

As adults,
we forget how to get back...
back to that which
is pure, innocent,
and OPEN.

There is a path back
to the virgin garden;
a place where we can
embrace and hold
the naked and the unadorned;
without feeling EXPOSED.

It's there,
in the silent moments...
waiting to be freed,
from our protected
self imposed
