Adults often forget how children see the world. They often loose the hope children have for a better future. Children see this as another world. The world of adults. The two worlds are far apart. The kingdom of god includes both at the same time.
Children do not se base reality. Neither do adults, but they are in a boring world of their own creation. Adults call this reality. Children see stories. They do not see the difference between things. Adults only see the difference between things.
Play your adult role in life while fostering your inner child. The inner child is the source of creativity and the backbone of a long vigorous life.
