My Child Is My God!

Experiences That Made Me Believe That God Comes Into Our Life In The Form Of A Child

Imagine you are in a new place,  continuously gaped at like the CCTVs in Big Boss ka ghar. Wherever you look, people want you to smile at you; lying in bed all day, you don’t have control over your poops and pees, whether you will be cleaned, bathed, fed or not pampered. You will be moving around only on someone’s shoulders, lap or a crib with everyone staring and screaming to grab your attention. Your one move and everyone gets startled! You cannot speak,  the only way you can express your discomfort is by crying. You are so fragile, with no communication skills. Basically you are totally at the mercy of others. This is the life of a newborn child.

Can you imagine living such a life? I can’t. Now think about it. Despite of all these issues, a child is happier than an adult. Why so? Don’t you think it should be the other way round? We control our own lives, yet we are highly stressed and unhappy. Yes, we were all born like this and look at what we have become.

While dealing with the day-to-day chores, I often wonder what made me behave the way I do now. Why am I not the way I was in my childhood? Looking at the activities of my fifteen month-old toddler, I too wish for such a majestic and innocent life, and there it strikes me! God himself has taken the avatar of my baby to teach me the falsafa of life! I can learn so much from my kid! All my unattended questions can be answered by someone I gave birth to! Isn’t it amazing? I decided to become my baby’s student and let him teach me the way of life. To my surprise, I was not disappointed with the enlightenment I received. He became my Krishna and I became Arjun… Here is what he taught me-

Wherever a child goes, fun happens. Not vice-versa. Do not expect others to bring fun into your life. Live delightfully and your surroundings will automatically become enjoyable- Just like a child’s giggle makes you  a clown, only wanting to make him laugh!

True love is unconditional. Whether you are out whole day, not in a good mood or busy with household chores, your kid doesn’t judge your momentary behaviour. He simply loves you and waits for you to smile back effortlessly. The moment you do it, your bond becomes unconditional.

Abiding by the rules society has made will make you even more rebellious- If you stop a child from doing something or touching an object that perhaps can be dangerous to him, he will do it even more. He might even attempt it in your absence. We do this too. Here’s the catch- ‘To act according to one’s own taste, inborn and natural, is the only known method of living in peace and joy, in success and satisfaction.‘- The Bhagwad Gita.

We are born divine. Society makes us greedy, selfish and vindictive.  We were born carefree, speechless, observant and content. Society teaches us how to suppress our feelings, never get overwhelmed, conceal our emotions…basically everything but how to be happy and content with what you have in life.

The whole world, is living a fake life- We’re not born egoistic, headache-prone beings, we become that as life thwarts us with different challenges each day. A child forgets the disappointments and always starts afresh. We don’t forget, we forgive, while holding grudges that we fear might harm us again. Converted to experience, this inspires our present and shapes our future. A child doesn’t know about past or future, only the present.

Most parents teach their kids the basics of life, how to deal with people and situations. But as per my analysis, a child is perfect. Adults- imperfect and insecure- teach children how to lead an acceptable social life. How ironical!

But here I am! Learning inexplicable life lessons from my child and this is not a solitary realisation. My child has taught me patience, perseverance and belief in the power of a higher existence! I get answers to my queries about my feelings, what destiny has in store for me, and how this life is meant to be lived…. like a child. Hope you also get your answers from your very own God, your own creation!
