Why are parents so keen to introduce kids to “their” God? Children in themselves are God…

And sooner than later…

An entity that is thrust onto the child..an entity, the child has absolutely no clue about.. no idea about.. and instructed…believe in HIM…and to top it up…the parents themselves have no clue about God … Ain’t we funny?

And there in starts a process whereby children intrinsically stop “trusting” themselves and start “believing” in God… and beliefs can always be punctured by… doubts…doubt comes free along with belief…packaged along with belief…and the tussle begins… turmoil begins… orthodoxy begins…and the business of religion begins…

Trust arises out of acceptance…an acceptance of oneself…A child is himself.. totally himself… complete… he hasn’t the faintest shadow of doubt that he needs to be somebody else… he rejoices in himself…he is wholly him…

If the above quality is nurtured… then one is “Godly”…else there is no God…
