Otrok novega časa A child of a new time

Gozd je prijatelj, učitelj in vzgojitelj otroka. Brez besed ga uči živega razmišljanja, odzivnega vedenja in prisotnega delovanja. Otrok se skozi soočenje z živim okoljem nauči o sebi vsega skozi doživljanje, čutenje in zaznavanje. Razume, da je narava razširjeno razumevanje samega sebe, saj ga brez narave in atmosfere ne bi bilo. Narava ni nekaj ‘drugega’, to je on sam. Morda je to najbolj zanemarjen vidik narave… čutiti utripanje življenja pod nogami, v vetru, v vremenu, v brstenju je nujnost, ne le sprostitev ali zabava, čeprav je tudi to, kajti edino skozi čutenje in branje življenja lahko z njim sodelujemo tvorno in vzajemno koristno.

Otrok novega časa bo sodeloval z življenjem kot s čutečim bitjem, ki komunicira, sporoča in vodi. Razume rastlino, žival in okolje skozi pozorno opazovanje, ve, kdaj je življenje v stiski in kdaj buhti od obilja, razume, da ga v naravi vse zaznava. Občutljivost do živega tudi njega oživi in tak otrok se zna poslušati v najbolj pristnem, ne da bi se tega učil. Spodbujati otroka k nenačrtovanem preživljanju časa v naravi je gotovo poteza modrega človeka, ki se v prisotnost otroka ne vmešava. Odvrzimo načrte, ne oklepajmo se ciljev, kadar vstopimo v naravo in ne nabirajmo kilometrine in srčnih impulzov, le prisluhnimo še živemu otroku in mu dovolimo biti. To je največ, kar starš lahko naredi za otroka in zase, dovoli biti.

The forest is a friend, teacher and educator of the child. Without words, it teaches him vivid thinking, responsive behaviour, and present action. Through confrontation with the living environment, the child learns everything about himself through experience, feeling and perception. He understands that nature is an extended understanding of himself, for without nature and the atmosphere he would not exist. Nature is not something ‘other’, it is himself. Perhaps this is the most neglected aspect of nature… to feel the pulsation of life underfoot, in the wind, in the weather, in budding… is a necessity, not just relaxation or fun, although it is also that because only through feeling and reading life can we cooperate constructively and mutually beneficial.

The child of the new age will interact with life as with a sentient being who communicates and guides. He understands the plant, the animal and the environment through careful observation, he knows when life is in need and when it swells with abundance, he understands that everything in nature perceives it. Sensitivity to the living also revives him, and such a child knows how to listen in the most authentic way without learning to do so. Encouraging a child to spend unplanned time in nature is certainly a move of a wise man who does not interfere in the presence of a child. Let’s discard plans, don’t cling to goals when we enter nature, and don’t accumulate mileage and heart rate, just listen to a still-living child and allow him to be. This is the most a parent can do for a child and allow both of them to be.
