Some say I was spoiled, bratty at times..., but I was also very imaginative, creative and spiritualy inclined, in a Christian sense. I made friends quite easily because of my high intelligence and good looks, but the story of my early childhood was never boring, as in dodging bullets because of polical unrest, etc. I was also constantly moving, just like my life today. Circle of life? Literally. My early life was filled with intense emotions, and no doubt, it's the reason why I'm a composer, published writer, and spiritual conduit today. Speaking of Dickensian meets Disney...long story. Thank you for asking.
You sound like a very interesting person, I wish you the very best.
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting:
The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting,
And cometh from afar:
Not in entire forgetfulness,
And not in utter nakedness,
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home:
Heaven lies about us in our infancy!
Shades of the prison-house begin to close
Upon the growing Boy,
But He beholds the light, and whence it flows,
He sees it in his joy;
The Youth, who daily farther from the east
Must travel, still is Nature's Priest,
And by the vision splendid
Is on his way attended;
At length the Man perceives it die away,
And fade into the light of common day.
The child-like state that Christ counselled his followers to revert to, in fact he insisted upon it as a necessary requisite to 'enter the kingdom', is really a matter of a return to our 'native' state, before the 'accidents' of happenstance piled up in our lives, both of our individual experiences, and the impress of the cultural millieu we grew up in. This is wholly a work of subtraction, not of accumulation, a reversal of the habit of acquiring that is hard to shake, despite having full knowledge that we will leave the world with nothing material, at least. This is the "system restore" we don't want to do, 'cos we've installed all sorts of stuff we don't want to lose, though we know there is something in there that is slowing the spiritual computer to a crawl.
