100 Days of Wisdom…Day 95
Kitaro Nishida said: “If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think that there can probably be no greater happiness than this.”
While I was reading this quote in my little zen companion book on my desk at work, it made me realise the simple truth that as children we become so eager to become adults and when we become adults we become eager to become like children.
I had written this a few days ago and just after I had written this a person I am life coaching came to me and said those exact words, almost word for word in a conversation we were having. It’s something we all realise and yet we repeat those mistakes onto our children by letting them rush into adulthood only to find that they don’t like what they see and want to go back to their childhoods.
