See the world like a child

Have you ever thought about the difference between how a child — before he or she knows any language — and an adult, sees the world and learns? The major difference is that the infant cannot think in words. Their awareness is pristine.

Try this for fun:
Go for a walk by yourself, and make a commitment that you won’t think in words at all. Of course you will have worded thoughts entering your mind, but just let them go, then get back to how an infant sees the world. Just be aware of your surroundings; the sights, sounds, and smells. Take it all in without labeling any of it.

Now it may sound impossible but it develops quickly with practice. You will be amazed at how this simple exercise will change how you feel. Such a simple thing really, but it can change your life.
