A Little Child Learning To Walk With The Help Of His Parents; Resolution of Conflict
We cannot be taught to walk but if given the space and encouragement we will figure it out for ourselves. We cannot be taught how to move in faith, how to live our daily lives in full faith of our vision and what we know of God’s will. The spiritual path is a lifelong process of figuring it out. This “little child” represents the ego, learning to function in service to the ego rather than its own fears and disordered desire.
This symbol represents the work that only we can do. It is said that for every step we take towards God He takes a hundred towards us but we must take that first step to move Him. When we do we are resolving the conflict between comfort and growth.
