I thought I fully understood this quote; however, after having a little one my own, I realized there was more to learn. Babies come out genius and are born master teachers. They teach us something new everyday about themselves and our surroundings... such as staying in the present moment and maintaining a state of resilient amusement.
Staying in the present moment is where our power (love energy) resides. When we stay in the present moment, the past dissolves and we are unconcerned about the future, which allows us to let go of stress and needless worry. By taking in what surrounds us, we begin to notice new and exciting perspectives on everyday objects, people and places, therefore, opening us up to receive clearer instant messages from our Higher Self, putting us more in alignment with our Divine nature. (See Laurie's article on Developing Intuition.)
When I am on the floor playing with my daughter, totally engaged and present in what I am doing, I receive ideas and bursts of clarity which really energizes me. This energy increases life force. By increasing my life force, I am beginning to notice my emotional and physical body become more resilient. I mean, think about it, if we believe in the law of attraction, then we know that we attract what we focus on.
Also, it is becoming easier for me to let go of my anger. I may have been angry a minute ago, and now a new minute is here and I desire a different experience. Watching my daughter learn to sit up, she would bump her head periodically (because it weighs a ton and could be mistaken for a weapon of mass destruction - she already given me a black eye!) and cry out in pain for the moment, then get distracted by one of her toys on the floor next to her and start smiling and laughing.
I am glad I got that lesson because it has made my life easier….and anything that makes life easier is genius!
