wonder why

Hi, Im new here so thank you for the opportunity to learn. Wonder why I understood myself so much better as a child. I didnt question mystical experiences and it seemed that "knowing" was easy. When I was a kid I just knew that wealth was not all I wanted. It was clear that giving was the true source of my happiness. Why must I be taught as an adult? Curious!
Later, it would occur to me it's the emptiness we mistakenly call Innocence.

Hello vanuatu, welcome.
Yes, it's curious. I have the impression that children are more near to the dharmic realm. They come from a peaceful place, often, and they have more space for wisdom. On babyfotos i look much more wise than now. :smile:
So in this life we collect a lot of "crap" and it seems to be the duty to loose it all again. :tongue:

Have a good time here,
