Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them. Matthew 19:14 (2 min10 sec)

    1. Childlikeness is our true nature.

    Children embody innocence, openness, and trust, just like the "Kingdom of Heaven".  However, our ego blocks us from recognizing our innate state.
    The Kingdom of Heaven is not a place, but a state of mind."
    The Kingdom is a state of perfect love, peace, and oneness and is not somewhere "out there" but within our own minds.
    An experience of The Kingdom requires a shift in perception away from the ego's limited view, filled with judgment and separation, towards recognizing the underlying reality of oneness and love.
    The Kingdom exists here and now, waiting to be experienced as we choose to forgive, release judgments, and open ourselves to the love that already resides within.

    2. The disciples' judgment.

    The disciples' attempt to keep the children away reflects the ego's tendency to judge and separate.
    The ego clings to control and familiarity and fears anything outside its limited perception.
    The disciples, the egoic mind, judged the children as unworthy and unfit, comparing them to themselves.
    Holding onto a limited view of their connection with Jesus, the disciples feared the children disrupting and diluting their access.

    3. Jesus welcomes all, just like our true Self recognizes the oneness of all beings.

    But this only happens when we release our judgments and see everyone as an extension of God.
    "Children" are aspects of our true Self veiled by ego judgments. Allowing these aspects to "come to us" is us releasing our resistance and embracing our love and innocence.
    Children are carefree and joyful and mirror the state of inner peace we strive for. Welcoming these qualities within ourselves fosters the "Kingdom of Heaven" inside.
