A Child’s Spirit!
Faith is one of the most powerful forces that exists, and I condone it whole hardheartedly.
However, Religion on the other hand, I abhor completely.
Religion is nothing more than rules and regulations used to restrict and choke the true potential of faith.
Religion is control.
Children, (may they be blessed by ALL the gods), are vastly more susceptible to these “myths” and “suggestions” because they are infinitely more creative and imaginative than adults.
We routinely squelch a child’s own personality in an effort to “train” them into becoming what WE have decided is considered “appropriate” and “acceptable”.
We effectively destroy their pure spirituality so that we can infuse them with our own.
How many people truly allow their children to choose their OWN path?
How many parents are willing to admit that their own opinion may not be the right one?
How often do you ask your child what they WANT, instead of telling them what they need to do?
Religion simplifies the process of subjugating a child, controlling their personality, and forcing their submission.
All in an effort to make them “behave”.
Since we have allowed fear to regulate OUR lives, so in turn do we do to them as well.
It is Religion that enslaves us, and it is only Faith that can set you free.
Instead of asking what it is that you must teach your child.
Maybe next time you should consider what it is that you can learn from them.
Instead of telling, listen instead.
There is no more honest and free expression than from that of a child.
