This video touched me deeply
I got gooseebumps at the end of this video-maybe this generation will be the one to bring us the Temple.

Building Sand Castles
These children are so beautiful, and the palpable joy of this video. There is a sweet innocence to children, and they deserve a far better world. When we were children, we adults all built sand castles and they have a kind of permanence in our minds, as we're still building them, knowing the waves will wash them into the seas. And yet what is permanent is the memory of something magnificent, that was and is still a dream. Could it be for World Peace. Could it be for a Messianic Future in which hatred dissolves and we rejoice and dance together. A world in which we can tell our children, it's good to grow up, and that they can and will actualize their dreams. The child within can thrive, even as we and they age. I believe the temple is within us, and that these children embody this, as do all children, in freeing their imaginations to do what's beautiful. To race against the sun on a hot summer's beach, to kneel and build something that will be demolished by tide and wave. Maybe YES for that temple, but I am saying a far greater yes, to what we can do together, to Create a temple out of the entire world. This means seeing the sacred in all things, great and small. To see the universe that dwells within the everything. And to see that LOVE is the answer and finally make this permanent. A permanent wave! As in Shall OM.

Great for all ages
This is a lovely short video, and the title gives it new meaning. I will be sharing it with my little grandson as an introduction to the idea of the Temple.
