Talking To Children Who Talk Their Truth with God – Session Two


“Talking To Children Who Talk Their Truth with God”

The Flowers of the Earth”

As part of the most wondrous of life experiences I integrate my teachings with the ancient wisdom that the children on this planet possess. It never fails to touch me deeply when listening to the little ones whose Souls are still so pristine. The children do not “fear” the “unknown” as the adults do; rather they learn fear FROM the adults. You can derive the greatest enjoyment and the most spontaneous laughter by paying attention to those whose wisdom is so far advanced than your own ..

I have compiled interviews with numerous children regarding every: topic under the sun and then some. As always I will not reveal their actual names nor their geographic locations. If you allow just one tidbit of their views of reality to filter through your own past errors of judgment and i:f you “remember” a small part of all that YOU knew as a child, then YQUR own personal world will be a better place …

***Each child chose their own subject matter


Gary … a 9 year old boy who lives in the eastern u.s. His subject-of choice-“snakes.”

Me-“Well Gary, what is the reason for your interest in talking about snakes?”

Gary- “I like the way they wiggle and how they get real still like a stick when they see an insect they want to eat. Everyone says they’re cold-blooded, but I don’t ‘Understand that”


Me-“What don’t you understand about the term “cold-blooded?”

Gary … “OK, snakes have blood right? If blood gets cold it gets thick like mud and if that happens it won’t be real blood anymore and besides that, everyone knows that REAL blood is warm, right? So, snakes can’t be cold-blooded if they are alive, but they can be if they’re dead. I never heard my dad say a dead snake is cold-blooded but he says all snakes are cold-blooded, you see?”

Me .. “I see.” (I think.)

Gary … “I think he gets confused sometimes cause he thinks my uncle Rudy is a snake. He told my mom that uncle Rudy is the most cold-blooded person he’s ever known, but that doesn’t make any sense cause uncle Rudy is a person and people aren’t snakes and snakes aren’t people either!”

Shana … (she lives in the Mid-east states and is 7 years young) subject-“purses.”

Shana .. “I like purses and think everybody should carry them to keep their stuff in and boys should be allowed to have them because after all some men really want them and get in fights over the right to carry them. ”

Me .. “OK Shana, I think they’re handy to have but people don’t like the idea of boys and men carrying purses too much and I don’t remember any men having arguments about being allowed to carry purses. When did you hear that?”

Shana … “My daddy and my big brother talk about it all the time. They see it on our t. v. My dad likes to watch wrestling with Hulk Hogan and I heard him say that they’re really fighting it out and whoever wins the big one wins the purse. I don’t know if it is as pretty as mine or not, but I know they REALLY want to win it and my brother Eddie keeps reading the newspaper and cheering for some short guy he calls Danny to “bring home the bacon” and get that nag to the line so he can bring in the big purse. I wish grownups would make up their minds, you know.”

Here is “Jim Dandy,” an alluring 10 year old in the south whose subject is “names.”

J.D … “Well, I think that all children should be named “boy” and “girl” and be allowed to pick their own names when they’re 10 years old.”

Me .. “Well don’t you think that would be very confusing?”

J.D … “Nope-you KNOW if you’re a boy or girl don’t cha? If YOU know who you are, who cares if others can’t tell who you are? If people can’t see you’re one or the other, then BOY OH BOY, there’s sure sumpen wrong with them!! See, this way you can get a real neat name instead of all the SAME names over and over the whole wide world. Mr. Bush isn’t REALLY Mr. Bush he’s MR. PRESIDENT. My mom named me CHARLES, uck! It sounds like a name for a squid to me, so I named myself!”

Chasen … she is a delightful 7 going on 50 year old in the western part of the country with the interesting subject “Nuns”

Me … “All right Chasen, what is it that you find so fascinating about nuns?”

Chasen … “Nuns are not real people you know, some of them dress kinda weird, like in space invaders (a movie. I know the ones in my school can’t seem to make up their minds whether they’re supposed to be nice or mean. They think that they’re supposed to pray A-L-L the time and they’re not allowed to have fun and always have to go to bed early.

They always call on their father for help but they think the pope is also their father too!!

So, I know they have 1 mother and 2 fathers for sure. Maybe more, I don’t know. Sister…….is always telling us that God loves us very much and will always be there to help us and comfort us but she ALWAYS makes me stand in the corner for talking in class and says that it isn’t HER that sends me there, that it’s God’s way of punishing me cause He loves me so much. You know what? I think she really doesn’t know God at all cause if she DID, she would know WHO is doing What and WHY! What do YOU think about nuns?”

me .. (Gulp) “Well I think I should go have some milk and cookies now, then maybe stand in the corner and think about this, you just stay here and meditate.”

“Troy-an engaging 11 year old from Europe with his views on animals.”

Troy-“We all know animals are smarter than people are. They have a way of knowing what’s going on outside before adults do; if a dog sits and stares at you long enough, he KNOWS you’re going to feed him because you just can’t handle THE LOOK any longer. The dog knows when to go outside and do his business, people take laxatives; when a dog knows it needs sleep all it does is close its eyes and BINGO, it falls asleep immediately. People take sleeping pills. Animals know when a person is a good person or a really BAD person, they don’t need a therapist to tell them. I was reading about the scientist Pavlov and his experiments with dogs. People have it all wrong, Pavlov didn’t train the dogs, the dogs trained Pavlov and let him THINK he did it. And That’s the way it is.”

And finally, 5 year old Victoria whose perspective on marriage is not at all jaundiced, whatever others in her family may believe.

Me … “I’ve been told you have some very interesting ideas about grownups and marriage Victoria, would you tell me a little bit about them?”

Victoria … “okay, I think no one should get married until they’re 50 years old; they’re gonna die soon anyway by then, so there would be no divorces in the world anymore and no kids living with split parents either. I think about this a lot and I count the people who are divorced and the people who are married and there are more divorced than married, you see? Everybody wants to grow up and get married. But I think it’s really grow up and get divorced. You don’t have to get married to have babies you know, after all the bible teacher says we’re all God’s children but she NEVER said that God got married. My mom and dad are divorced now, just like everybody else, maybe it’s some kind of disease. ”

Me- honey, don’t you think that because your parents are divorced maybe, just maybe it’s making you see things differently than you used to? I’m sure God knows how hurt both your mom and dad are because He sees everything.”

Victoria- “I know about God and what divorce is all about. I know that God sees everything but I know why my parents really got divorced you know .. God DOES see everything but when the time came to help my mom and dad, God musta blinked.”

Enough said.

From one child to another I bid you adieu ….. Celest
