INTUITIVE BABY

Source:Babies Happiness

A baby’s brain can notice beauty and experience delight wherever it wanders-being fully appreciative of the new, and present in the now. You’ve heard of the Buddhist concept of “beginner’s mind?” Well, a baby is blessed with the ultimate beginner’s mind!

The quieting of self-awareness during appreciation of art, nature and music-which may explain why people often say they lose themselves in a beautiful painting or scenery. A similar affect occurs during our experiences of romance and charity-the reason we feel selflessness when we’re sharin’ the lovin’.

A baby’s expanded consciousness is very similar to a meditating adult’s expanded consciousness. After all, a baby is a being who is highly open and in the now, aware of all kinds of surrounding detail and fully receptive to seeing the beauty everywhere and connecting with everyone!

When scientists tested the brain of a Tibetan lama who was known for meditating many hours daily, they discovered this lama had an extreme left-to-right ratio in his prefrontal cortex-the MRI sign of a happy, relaxed mind.

Repeated research studies have shown how folks who meditate regularly have an extreme “left-to-right ratio” in their prefrontal cortex-and are happier! It makes sense that a baby’s expanded consciousness is very similar to a meditating adult’s expanded consciousness. After all, a baby is known for smiling and laughing far more than the average adult. Studies show that a baby smiles 400 times a day. And children up to preschool age laugh about 300 times a day. As adults, we laugh just an average of 15 times a day.
