Children are great examples of our natural state of abundance. Think about a child learning to walk. At first, she realizes that by standing up, she can get at a whole new world. Pretty soon, standing up isn’t enough to experience that interesting world and she sees something she wants to touch that’s just out of reach. Still unsure about what to do, she reaches out with the top half of her body while her bottom half stays still. She loses balance and falls. Soon, the lure of the unknown beckons and she stands up again. This time when she stretches out her hand, her feet inadvertently move, and she gets closer to her target. With practice (and a few more falls), she keeps inching forward and eventually takes her first steps.
