Wonderful blog, Beth.When reading this: "I didn’t hear what people were saying, but I watched their actions." I was reminded of a book I read (set in ancient times) where a person traveled frequently to foreign cities, and he made it a point to not try to learn the language prior to arriving, nor soon after he arrived, rather, he would sit in the public places and observe people, as he felt he could better understand what the people were like just by watching them and not understanding their words.

Jim, you have experienced the fluidness of words, how they promise this and that and then be recanted.

You have been utterly betrayed by words and set your sails upon words and have landed in a foriegn land.

A land that rides and floats below the truth.

The way the FALC wants us to believe as children, is the way children are so malleable. I had to look up the meaning of malleable..."Able to shape and bent...Easily influenced" This is how they want us all to be.

That is their definiton of "believing like a child"...to be malleable, to shape and bent them out of their natural state.

Little children speak the truth, walk their truth, for they don't know not to.

However, they are greatly influenced and shaped by the adults in their world.

And children who are 'mentally challenged' get a free pass, for the FALC can't shape and bend them for their minds will not follow the unseen pathway, words are meaningless to them.

Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor after her stroke found that the mentally challenged lived in the right side of their brains....where spirit, love, passion, the arts, etc come from.

We need to return to the land of no words...

Amazing Beth! You hit it on the head. I think that is exactly it. To believe like a child is to live in the truth. That is the only thing they know. To believe like a child is not to spin the tales and shut down and not question.

thanks for your article,like your blog very much,well done

Thanks for reading, Red Wing 875, I appreciate it.
