Someone posted a video on FB of a 6 year old girl explaining to her divorced mother how she would like the energy around her to be. It was truly amazing and the girl's chosen words were insightful.
From listening to the calmly worded request of the child and from reading the video's description, I inferred that the divorced mom and dad must be fighting a lot and, am guessing, that the wise speech from her daughter inspired the mom to have her repeat while being recorded. I hope the words she says to her mom travel across the world and touch the ears of everyone.
Referring, it seems, to the fighting and agitated energy the parents are putting forth, the girl says "don't be that high up...be low...be in a place that's settled."
To me, she's describing being grounded and centered. This also touches on the Buddhist idea of non-attachment; of being level with all situations, good and bad.
She says to her mom, "I'm not trying to be mean" mom, I want all my friends to smile. Even me, she says wisely, I'm trying to be the best in my heart. I want everyone smiling; I think you can do it.
Get ready for what I thought was the best part!
"Settle mean heights down to low heights." Not as low as the floor, she clarifies. "I'm trying to be steady, straight from the middle where my heart is."
"My heart is something - to me. Everybody's hearts are something."
If people aren't nice, the world will turn into all mean people in the future; "Only monsters will remain in our place."
"I want everyone to be settled down, good as possible, nothing else."
