Near the end of the tots & tykes yoga class I teach each week, the kiddos line up against the wall for bubbles. This exercise is, without question, the highlight of the class. Week after week the kiddos wriggle in anticipation and giggle as I approach with the "magic wand."
The littlest yogis watch intently - sometimes reaching for the orbs as they fall from the sky. The older kiddos often scramble up onto their feet and follow me around the room in hopes of catching a stray bubble. What we adults dismiss as a plastic container filled with water and soap is to these little ones pure bliss, and their joy is positively contagious.
While there is great value in gaining knowledge and wisdom along our life path, it often comes at the expense of wonder. How lovely would it be to see magic in a floating bubble or the setting sun? Can you see something today with fresh eyes? Can you allow yourself to be captivated by wonder?
