Is your current life a natural progression of the six year old you?
Most of us are tamed, subdued, pale version of our childhood selves. Somewhere down the line, willingly or unwillingly, we conformed to what was expected of us. We also began to have crazy ideas of trading our individuality for fitting in with those that seemed fit and powerful. We have succeeded in perpetuating a legacy that has nothing to do with the ideals and ideas of our inner child and our inner voice. Where we are is probably not where we belong but we do find ourselves here - uneasy and troubled.
Sure, its easy to say that the six year old you had not seen the world and had no idea of the true meaning of living in this world; that the six year old you did not have responsibilities and did not had to fend for herself; that she was not expected to comply with the collective consciousness of the society. But its worth contemplating: has the six year old you been on the path of evolution and growth to get to where you are - or has it been bluntly flailing and swaying to the notions of the world to become the "functional" adult that you are. What kind of habits, experiences, and reactions have led you to your adult self? And, would the six year old you cringe or admire you?
