In shamanism, we believe that your inner child is God. By loving that child, you end up loving yourself and realizing the component of all creation stems from the idea of creation. Just imagine that the child inside of you, the one that most people push away, is the creator. And every time you tell yourself something like, I'm not good enough, the creation creates it immediately. And so, the world is the way it is because human beings don't know how to use their power correctly. They think incorrectly. They…operate in fear or they play small. Creation is a childlike spirit, but it's very powerful and wise and has limitless knowledge.
My whole thing is, if you really want to be enlightened, you don't need to go to the top of the mountain in India and get food poisoning or go on a big fast one day and just do green juices for the whole summer. You don't need to do these extreme things. All you need to do is laugh. If you just laugh and just keep looking at life and laugh, you will see everything revealed.
Being a kid allows you to stay in that place of innocence where you can just see the truth without trying to add some kind of idea of genius. The whole purpose of life is to know you know nothing. That’s why I always tell people, don’t make your life so hard. It’s supposed to be easy. That's when you see the magic unfold. But people overthink…because you have filters that were programmed by the world, and the school system you went through, etc., that set up this mental, masculine way of looking at life through logic.
