    no.. not the bodly cahnges of puberty, but the one where we stop beliveing in fariy tales. where we cant sit throught a childs movie without getting bored.

    Sorry. I can't help you there. I have not lost it yet. I guess I am just not old enough. Perhaps in three years when I am sixty it may have gone. I'll let you know.

    I still enjoy kids movies, at least the ones that are well done. The Never Ending Story was a great movie as well as My Dog Spot. I'll never stop liking those movies that kids enjoy for I'm still a kid at heart. If you don't like them then you've lost that part of you that was your child in you. Sorry to hear that for that's something terrible to lose. You don't have to watch them by the way.

    Pretty much everything bores me, and I can tare down just about anything I see into it's elements and find it's flaws. I was born that way, and am actually pretty happy overall. I still have my moments from time to time when nonsense is good, most of the time I just want order and logic to prevail.

    Beer helps the above "problem".

    Remember, always add " while in bed" to the end of every fortune you read from a fortune cookie.

    Sorry to hear about your loss.Read this:


    THE INNER CHILD OF THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

    When we talk about the inner child, we’re referring to an image of your child self. This image may be one that you access by looking at a photograph of yourself as a child, or simply by closing your eyes and picturing yourself as a child. The child can be of any age, however it is useful to be able to visualize yourself at different ages in order to access different memories and emotions. Let’s look at some of the different aspects of the child within:

    The inner child of the past. This is an image of yourself that matches with a certain time in your own past. This child can help you find and access memories and feelings that will help with your healing. S/he may appear sad, lonely, lost, afraid or deeply hurt. In some cases, to give you information about your emotional state your brain might give you a surprising image that is confusing at first. Years ago, when I was doing some of my own healing work, I saw an image of myself as a child that was both surprising and very helpful. I saw myself at the age of about four or five years, walking around looking kind of lost under a glass floor in my family’s home. This image of my child self represented the part of me that never felt seen, heard or recognized. This spontaneous image was very helpful to me in my healing and self-understanding. Trust your mind to provide you with the images of your child self that will inform you about the inner work you need to do.


    The inner child of the present. While the inner child of the past helps you with your healing, the inner child of the present helps you with your self-care on a current and ongoing basis. In order to get clear readings from the present child, the child of the past must have some degree of healing already accomplished. In other words you won’t get accurate readings about your present emotional state from the child image until the inner child of the past is relatively nourished and healed. The work you have to do with the past child will fade over time, and the relationship with your inner child of the present will grow stronger, deeper and more enjoyable. Use this aspect of the child within by checking in on a regular basis to see how you’re doing emotionally. Just close your eyes and picture yourself as a child. Depending on your inner clarity and where you are on your healing journey, this image will tell you something about how you are faring emotionally, right now.


    The inner child of the future. Some of the images of your inner child can be a kind of bellwether for you, indicating future possibilities for your development and self-expression. Here are some child images to consider about your inner child of the future:
    The divine child. Carl Jung refers to the divine child as one of the archetypes in some of his writings (C. Jung and C. Kerenyi, 1969). One of the definitions of the word “divine” is simply “from God.” If you believe we come from God, or the Creator of the Universe, then you can accept this idea. The divine child is radiant, pure, innocent, open and vulnerable. The divine child remembers where s/he came from, and never loses the connection. This is an image of our inner spiritual nature. This reconnection with the divine is the reward for your inner journey of healing, and can be seen as a doorway to a deeper and more fulfilling connection with your Creator.


    The magical child. This image of the child suggests a wellspring of energy. From this wellspring emerge your humor, spontaneity, creativity, joy and capacity for unconditional love. This is in some ways just another way of looking at the divine child, as these qualities too are the reward for your journey of self-discovery and healing. The magical child also provides a doorway to wisdom and undeveloped powers, suggesting a connection between the child and the wise elder that also lives inside each of us.


    The playful child. Think of exuberance, light, energy and unabashed self-expression. This image can be seen as the magical child in action, bringing varieties of physical playfulness into everyday behavior. Since most of you had some opportunity to play as a child, accessing this part of yourself is a matter of remembering. For others of you who never had the safety in your home to play, you may have to learn how to play for the first time. Children and animals are your best teachers. Also, some adults may actually be able to help you!



    The integrated child. As you heal, grow, expand and develop into the magnificent, brilliant being you were meant to be, all of the wonderful aspects of the child become diffuse throughout your mind, body and self-expression. In other words, the wonderful child aspects and qualities we are discussing here are available to you as an adult at any given moment on any given day in any given situation.
    So how does this relate to anger? Simple. The child is vulnerable in her/his beautiful, exuberant and creative expression, and therefore must have the protection of mature, healthy anger. In the integrated adult context, it could also be said that in order to be creative, spontaneous, playful, open and emotionally expressive, you definitely need to know how to take care of yourself.

    learning that there is a dark side in life and that things aren't, perfect shit happens, things don't always go your way and that the people that we place our unconditional love and trust in aren't perfect and all knowing is what i attribute to the proccess of growing up.

    we learn that in a dog eat dog world we got to take care of ourselves or else...so we grow up.

    thats just my theory.

    Probably cause it´s been the same story over and over... we get pretty bored of watching always the same models of behaviour the same code of values... nothing new, no good food for the brain anymore... nothing out of the ordinary... I liked Chihiro's journey though... during a time nothing seemed to be interesting enough... I think it is just the fact we are changing...

    perhaps sociaty forces us to lose what we once loved so much :P . AND TO THINK about what you lose. Little boys don't fear girls , why do some grown men do?
    going further on that last thingy: Men play videogames(or something with violance) -> control over emotions: FEAR
    WHILE(and what i find very unfair xD)
    Girls go schopping -> creates selfcontrol of emotions: LUST

    Life is unfair in teaching too , just wanted to prove that :wink:

    I'd say wretched has got it about right. Cliches are boring.

    Knowing what is going to happen next is initially appealing because it can make the watcher feel clever, but the tenth/twetieth/fifitieth (delete according to personal experience) time you see Jean Claude Van Damme/Sylvester Stallone or whoever lose for 95 % per cent of the film before mircalously recovering for a "thrilling" voctory gets to be rather dull.

    One of the most popluar series on TV at the momment is Lost , which as far as I can figure seems to be a random series of losely connected events, and so is unpredictable.

    I suspect the same is true for hide-and-seek. After a while you've explored all the possibilties, then (for some) an interest in sport takes over with a clearer goal and universal rules, but even then the same teams don't endlessly pay each other.
