Are Children Naturally More Spiritual?

Do you remember any mystical or magical experiences from when you were a kid? I’m certain that I’ve had many more than I do remember, but it does seem to me that as a child we are freer to perceive reality more as it is, before societal conditional has a chance to take hold.

I remember pondering deep questions on the nature of consciousness as early as 4 or 5 years old, asking myself questions such as, “Who am I, how did I come to be here?” In retrospect, I wish I had been taught things such as meditation, so I could have expanded my awareness, and learned to thwart the inevitable conditioning which only limits our experience.

I came across an amazing video today of a very young girl discussing meditation and spirituality. I find it fascinating! It’s quite obvious to anyone who watches this amazing young girl that she is speaking from direct experience, and not from someone’s ideas of spirituality she read about, or was told about. That’s what it’s all about, direct experience, which leads to true wisdom.

Take a look, and let me know what you think!
