So I'm not a very spiritual person.. ok wait... I'm not a very religious person.. spiritual maybe at some level... but not one of those who talks of her beliefs and revelations to the whole world...
And Aadi and I both are like this... so we were pretty sure we wouldn't put any thoughts of God and religion on Siddy when we was young... we want him to find his own story and his own beliefs...
However in his play school they had yoga as a subject which I thought was pretty cute! He would come home and show us all these poses he had learnt... that tiny little body of his (he was 2.5 when he learnt it) twisting and turning in funny ways!
They even taught him to pray, when he reached school, before food at the end of the school day.
Even the new school does the praying bit... so he know of God.. the concept of him may not be clear... but he know of him... Of course his biggest question regarding God is " Why can't he bring the dinosaurs back?"!!!
And then I have to go into the whole, they are extinct explanation... "what is extinct"
they don't exist any more " what is exist "
ok baby they don't live any more "what is live"?!!!
Yikes...I don't think i asked my parents such existential questions at 3.5... heck i don't think I asked at 12 or 15 either... I just took things for granted... people are born and then they grow old and then they die...
"what is grow old?!!!"
And of course they whole
"God made the trees?"
hmmmm yeah sure
"God made the mountain?"
yes yes he did
"God made the road?"
ummmm no the contractor who got the contract did...
yes God did it!!"
Its adorable their concept of the earth and everything in it... of the universe and the planets and the stars... everything that isn't reachable to them it is... and everything that is stable and standard just isn't!
The whole point of this very heavy blog today was because of course he did the cutest thing!
The other day while chilling in jaipur in the midst of rolling around nd jumping and being hawk eye and iron man and hulk and king kong... he suddenly decides he has to meditate.
He tells his Uncle "Now i have to meditate"
and then he sits down crosses his legs, puts his hands on his knees facing upward, closes his eyes and chants Aum three times!!
this little tingly pungly bumling of a baby... decides he must meditate mid playing!
then the opens is eyes and start being hawk eye again!!
As I am curious what kind of a person he will be as he grows up... what kind of friends will he have, what will he study what kind of music he will like... I am just as curious to see what his spiritual journey will be like...
