If We Want a Better Future, We Need Mindful Kids
The pandemic shook every corner of this planet and took us out of our comfort zone. This is the first time, or at least the first time recorded in history, that an event affects everyone in the same way. It did not differentiate race, power, money, or education level. However, there is something positive and amazing in this situation. It reminds all of us that we are the same. Yes, you and me. The pandemic brings our humanity back. Indeed, sometimes we need these “hard” situations to demonstrate how resilient we are, and, how we love each other. We donated, cooperated, helped, and connected with people, more than ever. We stayed at home and sacrificed our freedom for others. What a beautiful act of love! Hopefully, the next generation would not need to live this again to learn about love, resilience, and compassion. Indeed, there is a way we can help them to understand their humanity: teaching them to meditate.
Meditation is a technique that allows people to connect with the present moment. For almost all adults practicing it is difficult. For kids, embracing meditation can be easier than adults if taught the correct way. Kids, by nature, are more curious and willing to learn new things and are more in tune with their love and caring emotions. They can learn to keep those emotions throughout their lives if encouraged in heart-based meditation. Meditation gives children the tools to not only face, in a positive way, a more competitive world, but also to build the world they want to live in.
This awakening call is the opportunity to transform the world into a better place for the next
generations and should be a turning point to create a real change in our society. It is time to
nurture the people of the future: the kids of now. Indeed, it is our responsibility to raise kids who maintain a sustainable planet and connect with others from their hearts.
More than ever, we are witnessing how people can heal a broken world through love and
empathy. So, let’s take action and teach future generations how to create meaningful lives and bring positivity for a better future through meditation.
