Soon after her brother was born, little Sachi
began to ask her parents to leave her alone
with the new baby. They worried that like most
four-year-olds, she might feel jealous and
want to hit or shake him, so they said no.
But she showed no signs of jealousy.
She treated the baby with kindness and her
pleas to be left alone with him became more urgent.
They decided to allow it.

Elated, she went into the baby's room and shut
the door, but it opened a crack-enough for her curious
parents to peek in and listen. They saw little
Sachi walk quietly up to her baby brother, put her face
close to his and say quietly,
"Baby, tell me what God feels like.
I'm starting to forget."

From the book 'Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior'
