I have a three and half year old grand daughter. She is just learning the process of story telling. Many times I feel she is getting into wrong habit! I have yet to learn how to stop her from getting into habit of story telling. She is in terrible mess when she gets up from the sleep in the afternoon. I can see that she does not know how how to stop. Her tantrums gets very wild some times and my wife will help her divert her mind into her favorite food or song. She becomes normal after a while! After reading J. Krishnamurty and his views of being passionate about being free from thoughts which crowd our consciousness all the time and does not allow us to learn to be pure observation. I find it difficult after lots of learning, to be patiently and aimlessly waiting for the unknown to appear and be in truth, peace and love!

...sometimes the purest among us, our children, are nothing more than sleepy and crabby when waking. Separate yourself and your own issues from your sweet baby girl. Recognize your sensitivity in possibly needing more sleep and truly nothing more. I know little of your situation but caution, that keeping things simple is always best.

Thank you for your comment, I was happy to see that what is being shared is also read! I wanted to add to the Nipun's point that unlearning is very difficult process. My focus was that like my grand daughter, I have (we all have) formed the habit of story telling. Unlearning it is very difficult, even after reading and understanding for so many years, we are being hijacked all the time by our stories. Habit which was formed at earlier age and onwards are difficult to get rid off. I am learning to be passionate selflessly about the challenge of being free from any kind of beliefs and binding looking forward to that state of mind when love and peace prevails in it without expectations.
