I was 15 minutes early picking up my kid from school today.
during the time of waiting, I was chatting with someone who carried a baby.
For some reason, the baby keep smiling back to me.
If I looked away, she would stop. If I looked at her, she would keep laughing...
(For some reason, I found that the baby under six months old seems to like me, but baby over 9 months usually find me quite scary.)
When I looked at her smiles,
It remind me that...
when my kis was young, she could easily make friend with other kids in the park and played for hours.
Usually, when I got close to them, I was amazed to realize the friend she had been playing with speaks no English at all. (nor Chinese)
Two of her best friends when they first encountered each others,
one can only speak swedish, and the other can only speak Japanese.
But they have NEVER seems to have problem communicating with each others disregards that they speaks TOTALLY different language.
Then, I brought back my attention to the baby in front of me,
She is quite a cute baby... (fair skin, big blue eyes, and golden blonde hair)
In her point of view, I am no different from others,
There's no skin colors difference,
No religion difference,
No nationalities difference,
No Language difference,
No cultures difference,
No good or bad, right or wrong difference,
No any difference that is created by any background...
All I am to her is just a simple soul.
All the sudden, I start to realize that...
How soul communicate with each other, I see it in babies!
This make me wonder...
What happened during the process of growing?
How did we educate our kids,
So they are trying so hard to prove that they are different from others? Or they are just the same as others?
They try so hard to fight for their culture, their religion,
They learn to point their finger on others and use up all the language they ever learned just to show they are the "right one".
I just cannot help thinking...
How should I educate my own kids,
So they learn to communicate with their heart, to record with words, to use their body as tool to fulfil their purpose of life, and use their soul to experience the universe?
It's the very first time,
I notice the wisdom which I have never paid attention to, come from a baby who is less than 6 months old.
Maybe, This is some task that I will need to search for answer, too.
才有辦法讓她用心去溝通, 用語言去記錄, 用身體去實踐課題,用靈魂去體驗這個世界呢?
