Meditation Thought: “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 19:14)
To such… looking with wonder, delighted in all the variety they find around them, excited to discover something new, open to knowledge, seeking to understand the world around them, seeking to understand themselves.
Come – come like a child to explore the kingdom – see it as a child sees the physical world: eager for every detail, rushing to learn about the latest discovery, pondering as to how it fits with the knowledge already stored away.
Look to each moment with enthusiasm, knowing it holds a key to unlock a new secret of the kingdom, as it fits together with all that is in your spirit, your mind, your emotions, your body.
“Seek ye first the kingdom” – for it is in the kingdom that the total truth lies: the truth that will make you free – not in bondage to your own self, not in bondage to another, not in bondage to the world. No, but free to peace, free to seek your purpose, free to pursue knowledge reserved for those who believe that in the kingdom is the fulfillment for which they long.
