  2. 2. One of the best aspects of Total Stress Management; is toexplore and nurture the child within us and thus; livebuoyantly, bubblingly and ecstatically!Why is this so? Isn’t it true that during childhood also thereare pleasures and pains? Isn’t it true that there is STRESSduring childhood also? What is the big advantage of exploringthe child within us; and nurturing it? Even if the childhoodappears charming and pleasant because of nostalgia; aren’tthere problems also?The answer to this brilliant question; is; we do not explore thechild within us; for satisfying the nostalgia!It is because the child is full of vigor, agility and flexibility andmost importantly because of openness, imaginativeness,compliance and receptivity. It is because of the ability of thechild to listen, think and believe in itself; that we explore thechild as a part of Total Stress Management. It is because of thequality of the child to instantly outgrow the physicalrestrictions and limitations; and envision several possibilities;without cynicism and skepticism; and enjoy; the fantasies!Fantasy is possibly the greatest tonic of soul! From timeimmemorial; literature and art has been vitalized by fantasyand this ability of the child is a great source of strength thatdirectly springs from its soul; not yet thwarted by so called
  3. 3. logic, reasoning and rationality (self imposed restriction ofego).Fantasies are tonic to soul in more than one way!

  4. 4. This is also why; those who are shackled by the subjectiveframework of so called logic, reasoning and rationality;trapped in cynicism and skepticism; and are imprisoned in thejails of their restrictive intelligence; cannot; and do not; enjoyfantasies, biographies of saints and also; the freedom ofpracticing NAMASMARAN!
