In 2014, two teenagers completely blew my mind, they were Willow, 14, and Jaden Smith, 16. I have been amazed at the amount of talent, wisdom, intelligence, beauty and consciousness those kids already have. How amazing to have kids able to express their creativity, make wonderful art and not limit themselves to school’s or society’s boundaries.
They gave an interview this year that a lot of people misunderstood. I actually loved them more after that. Their freedom, thirst for knowledge, and their understanding of life is something we should all inspire to. The young Smiths are definitely having an experimental childhood, and I think that is closer to the truth in terms of personal development. As a child, you are aware of and confident in your true essence, and your environment in which you grow nurture that essence or tames it. Those kids are still experimenting life (like all of us), but are already blessing us with so much good art at such a young age. From physics, spirituality, to the arts, they are covering pretty much all of the domain of life that are essential to the building of an awesome, confident human being in harmony with the universe. They are only teens, so wait for all of that knowledge to mix with more experience!!
I am excited to see these two good souls, grow and share with us what they have in their amazing minds and imagination.
