When my child asked me about God and if God works all the time, I wanted to talk to him all about the soul. But I felt stuck, would he understand? Would if be too hard for him to get the concept? I explained that God never sleeps or takes a vacation or even sleeps and he seemed happy with that.
When he asked me how babies were born, he was almost 6 at the time, I decided to answer in a very simple statement that it takes a mommy and a daddy to make a baby and he also seemed content with that answer. Why are children so content with simple answers? Because they haven't learned all about fear and doubt yet. When I say that the tooth fairy will be able to find him when we are out of town on vacation, he believes me and there is no more discussion. He has faith. He hasn't learned to not trust anything anyone says. Too bad that innocence will be gone someday (soon, I'm afraid) and he will live in a doubting world just like everyone else. The opposite of fear is faith. But unfortunately for many, that has to be re-learned. This is where, Hello, Soul comes in. It's not necessarily a re-learning as it is a re-remembering. To remember where we came from, we are souls, let's say Hello!
