THE UNIVERSAL CHILD

“Unless we become as a little child we would not see nor enter the kingdom of God… and a little child shall lead them.”~Bible

We all can remember the joy of childhood when everything was fresh and new…but this awareness continues in the background of the subconscious buried behind all our socially conditioned adult expectations and goals…but at times when we are able to suspend this continues preoccupation, our Universal child has a chance to express itself.

This concept of a Universal Child has been a part of the world for a very long time. Carl Jung called it the “Divine Child”.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. ~Pablo Picasso

What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult. ~Sigmund Freud

There are children playing in the streets who could solve some of my top problems in physics, because they have modes of sensory perception that I lost long ago. ~J. Robert Oppenheimer

Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do. ~Jean de la Bruyere

Creativity represents a miraculous coming together of the uninhibited energy of the child with its apparent opposite and enemy, the sense of order imposed on the disciplined adult intelligence. ~Norman Podhoretz

The reluctance to put away childish things may be a requirement of genius. ~Rebecca Pepper Sinkler

A grownup is a child with layers on. ~Woody Harrelson
