The mind frame of a child is not yet mature, so we must nurture it and guide it. In the grand universe, we humans are still children, needing to find our way. We should not cling too tightly to what we believe. The Mind is like a sponge: when it is soaked with water, even when immersed in the ocean of knowledge, it won’t absorb much more, except on the very surface layer. If your thinking is not opened up, new ideas cannot be received and utilized.
