Jesus said, "Except You Be Converted and Become As A Little Child You Shall not Enter The Kingdom of Heaven". Matthew 18:3.
This is a teaching that is found in most of the spiritual traditions. Here we will examine how this principle plays itself out in Christian Mystic perspective. [But here, speaking in the context of being Christian does not create an exclusive set of doctrines. These principles are useful in all spiritual philosophies or would be spiritual disciplines.]
The spiritual person is moving in his mystical journey to be not childish but rather more and more child like. The end that you desire can not be attained in the contrasting adult mentality. If you try that, you will be stunted in your pursuits. This includes not only your peaceful state of mind, but also in your achieving of all your earthly goals.
So, what does it mean to become as a child?
And, once we know what it means to be this child, how do you convert yourself into the child like traveler through this physical world?
How do you escape a world of unfulfilled dreams and desires?
We will discover the answers to these and many more questions that are found in the knowledge of becoming as a little child. When you align your choices to the little child, you will find the answer to many if not, all the knotty questions that disquiet your daily life. In this you will move toward a peace full [two words] life.
There is a connection between the hidden [forgotten] child and the physical world. When you uncover the unseen child, you are in view of what it means to be converted and are in view of entering the spiritual kingdom of heaven.
You will find yourself with a whole new world because the eyes of your forgotten child will have been opened.
Come now into this course and start becoming as a little child.
