To keep a childlike heart 2015-06-01 23:54:29
The class that I took in STUST(Southern Taiwan University of Science and Technology) on May 28th was 「Reading experience that I most impressed.」 And the lecturer Mr. Chang was a professor in National Taiwan Normal University. This class was held by Tainan City Government and National Academy of Civil Service. At the beginning the lecturer shared with us about his reading experiences. And he told us that he liked traditional literature more than modern literature in the past. But on the contrary, he like modern than traditional now. He said because the traditional literature would keep within bounds. And suggested us that we could read 「The Little Prince」 the famous literature in France. This short story will show us what is the really important in our life. And explore the world in different ways

To keep the childlike heart. This topic seems not very difficult, but very little part of people can keep with it. For example, we will satisfied by something very simple when we were children. And treasured something that we don’t think important now. But now we want more and more even we have a lot. It seems that we will not satisfy always. And kids will always keep curious with everything. Although, someone said curious can kill a cat. But when a baby came to this world without any socialization, I think the curious was the first present given from God. And when we are children, we will share our candy or toys with another partner directly without any feedback. But when we are adults. It seems sharing is not so simple. Adults decided to share or not depended on benefits. There is a famous movies called 天外奇蹟. In this movie, it describe an boy was very shy and one day a girl came into his life. And they decided to make their traveling dream come true, so they worked very hard day by day to earn the money. And they become older and older. But one day the bad news happened into their life, that is his wife was dead from sick. And the man was very sad, but he never forgot the committee with his wife. So he decided to travel with his house with balloons and his wife’s pictures. Accidently, there is a 8 years old boy take into this special house for collecting a badge. There are many things happened and result to the small kid was kidnapped by bad guy. He was confused whether he still traveling or to saving the boy. When the man reviews his wife’s diary, and he understood they had already finished their adventures. It time for starting a new journey. So he decided to save the boy. When back to home the man give the badge to the boy by himself.

On contrary, when we has been adults. It seems harder and harder for us to realize the kindness, curious and share. On this generation, the distance between people has been longer than the past. I think that contribute to busy and the life style was changed. For example, we would talk to our neighborhoods almost every day, but it seems seldom now. And the second reason was the methods of education from parents. Our parents would teach us be more polite, but now it seems very strange to relatives. And the final reason was the methods of communicate has been changed a lot. For instance, if we want to chat with friends, we had to talk by ourselves. But now we can chat by many kinds of apps, for example LINE, Facebook and Chat etc. You don’t need to chat by yourself instead of just moving your fingers. Maybe these can short your distance between you and your friends in body but also add yours distance in psychology. Pull away, it results to sense of unbelievable and more mature for protecting themselves. To keep the childlike heart. It can prove the relationships between parents and children. It helps parents to know what their kids think about. More communication with each other. Just like the story 天外奇蹟,everyone must have a kindness heart and accept anything new. And just like entrepreneur, arrogance and king in the little prince story. Egocentric and blind to run for fame and wealth but ignore the things simple and important. It’s never too old to run for your dream. The most important wed can find when we find our childlike heart. And find that it is more important is whom you be with and what memory you leave. Finally you will find it is different from what you think about this beautiful worlds. Just let us keep “the little prince” in our heart to appreciate something simple and beauty.
