September 12, 2021: The Enlightened One

The Enlightened One

“I want everything to be as good as possible. Nothing else.”

“If I can be nice, I think all of us can be nice, too.”

“I want everyone to smile.”

From the mouths of babes. Don’t ever believe someone when they say toddlers don’t understand what is going on around them. This is a time when I am grateful for YouTube. Early one morning when I viewed the video link below about a toddler urging her divorced parents to get along with each other, I teared up. ALL adults should heed her wise words, I thought to myself. I’m also thankful for her mother who was quick to record her child’s astounding words midstream…

Then I shared the video with a young woman I highly respect. Her response?

“She is an enlightened being, possibly the next Dalai Lama. Incredible. She speaks of finding the middle way, not too high, not too low. What a gift this child is.”

More words from the little Wise One:

“I’m not trying to be mean. I just want everyone to be friends.”

“If we live in a world where everyone’s being mean, everyone will be a monster in the future…”



Thank you Athena. I've watched this video before. It never gets old and it's always inspiring.

Thank you, Maria. If she is an example of our next generation, we should all be inspired!
