It is then up to the child

It is then up to the child and the community to live a life dedicated toward relearning that wisdom.

This beautiful post and the one I've quoted from, “The Midrash of the Angel of Birth,” remind me so much of the stanza in Wordsworth's famous ode that begins: "Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting." I've taken a renewed interest in that poem over the past couple of years, and I love the picture in it as well as in the midrash you refer to.
