When do we loose our purity of thought as children and loose our spontaneity under layers and layers of over-thinking?

I hope I made myself clear despite my English.

  • Jun 12 2013: It is out internal governor that checks our free and open thought. More than anything the question of "right and wrong" hinders our thinking. Or, and probably more important. "what would others think" is a great hinderance. If we just allow ourselves to think and roll with it, we would be in far better shape. Brainstorming and "rabbit trail" type thinking would allow us to be more open and free in our thought. More child-like as it were. It is still hiding there. We just have to allow it to come out.
