Basic human nature!

“Infants, even before they can talk, show a preference for examples of helpful behaviour and turn away from illustrations of harm. The conclusion is that basic human nature is positive and kind. Therefore, cultivating warm-heartedness and compassion is something we can all do.”

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

  1. Oh that is beautifully true. I was an infant and I am knew all my family and they were all fighting because my father absconded and my mother needed help in spite of marrying the wrong man. I wanted to say stop fighting. Everything is going to be fine, but then I couldn’t speak. I was surprised I could not speak. LoL. Needless to say I made up for it as an adult.

    1. I also am able to remember sitting in my high chair, actually chuckling to myself because, since I couldn’t talk yet, my parents figured I didn’t understand what they were saying and I knew they were talking about things in front of me that they wouldn’t be once they figured it out.

      Babies are much wiser than most of us suppose…

  2. 💜 Conditioned UpBringing Creates Harmful Behaviours EveryOne; especially when these Behaviours are not Admitted, Acknowledged and Addressed because MMHI (Multiple Mental Health Issues) ARE Stigmatised…this a Consequence of a Parental Philosophy of ‘Do as I Say NOT!!! as I Do’ but “infants” are mimics; so I Suggest YOU!!! keep a keen eye on YOUR!!! Behaviours if YOU!!! desire “infants” to Continue to Behave Naturally…

      1. 💜 Then that means your “best” isn’t Good Enough EveryOne; so I Suggest take YOURSELF!!! to YOUR!!! Next Level of Consciousness EveryBody…it’s Incredibly UnComfortable but worth it; this from a Sir, a Man NOT!!! a “Mam”

      2. I humbly beg your pardon, Sir, HOWEVER, I take your point, but I am was a higher level of consciousness and understood all that, but the Sir in my children’s faces lives was very low vibration consciouness, and I did my best, but I love you your forthright admonishing. I am in agreement. Do hit me with sticks (honest words) call us all out. My African self did not think you were a Sir. Very few Sirs are as forthright as yourself. A nice surprise.
