Being immersed in the moment, releases our minds from the day to day stresses of our life and realigns our mind & body to it’s essential nature – pure bliss consciousness – and watching young children play is one of the best ways to bring this experience of joy/bliss to the heart.
Watch and learn from young children – catch them when they are completely immersed in some activity and try to witness the world through their experience – totally carefree, one-pointed & immersed in the moment. Then take that ‘childlike’ quality into your own activities. * Note; being childlike does not mean ‘immature’ – it means being simple, unbounded and impervious to what others are thinking about you.
