Thoughts from Sherron: We Can Learn Much From Children

“It is a happy talent to know how to play” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

Through imagination we can leave our routine everyday existence and fantasize about all the things that make life interesting.  Our imagination provides opportunities to envision new possibilities. It enhances our capacity for deep self-expression and enriches the quality of our most intimate relationships.  —from our upcoming book, Real Self Expression.

Several years ago, a dear friend and colleague of mine, Jodie drove me to Los Angeles to see a family member who was terribly ill.  On the way she asked if I would like to hear “The Velveteen Rabbit” (by Margerie Williams, 1922) read by Meryl Streep, which she had recently purchased.  I found this suggestion to be charmingly playful and spontaneous and said that I would “love to”.   As the CD began to play, a whimsical sort of music pulled me into a place of unfathomable resonance.  The emotions I began experiencing were somewhat perplexing and the best way I could describe what I felt was a profound sense of peace accompanied with unexplainable sadness.  The arrangement of music that had been orchestrated together with this wonderful story of a stuffed rabbit who becomes Real, left me not knowing whether to laugh or cry.

This classic story read by Meryl Streep, combined with its whimsical music,  prompted what became a decade of both serious and playful self-excavation. May you also find many such instances which inspire you to realize and understand the unique and wonderful being you truly are.  (Revised from Letting Go and Taking the Chance to be Real.)

  87. Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    terrific blog!

  88. I have been browsing online more than three hours these days,
    but I never found any attention-grabbing article
    like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for
    me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will
    probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
