Great Stuff! Jesus said one had to become as a child to enter The

Kingdom of God. One of the main reasons for my acceptance and

admiration of Jesus was his love of children, even holding them up

as spiritual role models. I've heard that during Jesus' time children

were regarded as property, especially the girls.

 

As far as anyone knows did any other teacher of the ancient world

hold children in such high regard ? I was just wondering.

I've absorbed a lot of information concerning the major, and some minor, religions over the years and, no, I cannot think of any other seer-master-leader that stresses such a heavy emphasis on children in the materials that they presented.

 

There are two perspectives to the issue that are , I believe, equally important. First, if we approach the world as a child, we are at risk and are vulnerable. We automatically open ourselves to exploitation and abuse by those who recognize the postures and attitudes inherent in these behavior patterns. I am not talking about assuming the role of a child, but disciplining oneself to look at the world in innocence as much as possible. Of course as adults this is often impossible to do. But with practice and discipline it can be attained to a degree. When these skills are acquired, then the world begins to show us things that we don't expect and sometimes do not like. But it all has the attribute of enabling us to "live in the moment" and see things around us for what they really are. It all enables us to string together new "patterns" of belief about the world around us. Sometimes this knowledge is unwanted and traumatizing, but one always learns from the process.

 

Second, children are inherently creative. If left alone, or if they are "only" children, they have the ability to create new realities around themselves that cement their meaning and place in the environments around them over time. This is an "inside" - "out" process, and involves the free flow of information and images, back and forth, between their environment and their brain. A sort of dance of creation as it were. And through this "dance" new futures are created moment to moment by them and for them. It is self-sufficiency at a basic level. I know it's not patriotic to say this, but a French educator, Piaget, first noticed the elements of all this quite some time ago when he defined the basics of the learning process to be "freedom, play,and choice".

 

I believe that Jesus was the ultimate futurist and rebel. That is why he was considered to be so dangerous to the "empire" people. But it is clear to me that He knew what the future would need from us for it to be made, and He advised us, accordingly, about 2,000 years ago.
