A Poem - Speak to us of children by Kahlil Gibran


“Speak To Us Of Children”
by Poet, Philosopher Kahlil Gibran 1883 – 1931
video created by Mary Robinson Reynolds and Craig Reynolds
And a woman who held her babe against her bosom said:
“Speak to us of children!”
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you, but not from you, And though they are with you, Yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love,
But not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls.
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
But seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward, Nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
And He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow which flies,
So He loves also the bow which is stable.

Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it's what they bring to the world that really counts." – Anne of Green Gables
In today's fast-paced world, it can be easy to lose sight of what's important…
No, wait. I take that back. :)
It's not really about our world being fast-paced, is that as we get older, WE become fast-paced.
It seems that as a child we intuitively knew the simple things that made life amazing… and as adults, it sometimes feel like we have so much to do, so much to be, so much to have… so much so that we need reminders of what it is like to live in a more present, aware, conscious, fulfilling way.
We all need reminders to bring us back to our true selves, and today I have a gift to help you do exactly that. It's an insightful, touching, heartwarming and thought-provoking motivational video called "The Seven Wonders."
