What I learned from reading: Little Lord Fauntleroy by F. H. Burnett

Review and analysis of the move, Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson with the moral and lessons of the story.
Little Lord Fauntleroy 
By Frances Hodgson Burnett

Continuing with the Collection of Christmas Stories I’m reading, I found Little Lord Fauntleroy by Frances Hodgson Burnet next in line, and I got the chills, because I read “The secret Garden” from her a couple of years ago and I loved that book so much that I couldn’t help to get my expectations high with another of her novels. 

And I am very glad to say that my expectations were met and that I enjoyed reading this book so much, despite being a little bit disappointed in the beginning, because it took me a while to adapt to the narrative style of it, but after that I enjoyed and loved each and every word of this book. 

Although, I really don’t know why Little Lord Fauntleroy was in this Christmas Collection, because it doesn’t have a Christmas related theme, but I’m really glad it was there, and now I that looked at the Wikipedia article of this book, I found out that it was published before The Secret Garden, and if we compare both books we can notice that Frances grew as a writer and occultist and improved her art and teachings thru the years. 

But what did I learn from Little Lord Fauntleroy? 

Well, despite many could say that the main lesson of this book it’s all about love and how it can help us  change to become a better person (and I do agree with this), I rather think that this book teachings go beyond love and touches the grounds of how important and how our behavior can be affected by the perspectives others have of us. Therefore I learned from this book that’s it’s the perception other people have of us that it’s going to define our way to act towards them. 

In the book Cedric (Lord Fauntleroy) managed to change the old nasty ways his grandfather used to have, just by believing he was a good person and by having a innocent pure perception of the man that everyone disliked. So to match the boys believes and don’t disappoint him, Cedric’s Grandfather becomes a good person, thanks to the love and good perception his grandchildren had of him. 

Because sometimes all it takes for you to actually start acting and getting better, it’s to have someone believe that you are better than what you think you are. Since we humans care too much about what other people think of us and the perspectives and expectation they have for us and that can influence our life really drastically, because it’s the mind that create and construct reality, so others people mind can transform our own reality. 

Since we act accordingly to those perception or expectations other people has for us, therefore if someone thinks that you are a nasty person and you know that they think like that about you, you won’t act nicely to prove them wrong, no, you’d probably reject that person because of what it believes of you and act your naughtiest so they really know how nasty you can be. 

So the power of others people perception or thoughts about us can really define our behavior and that’s why it’s important for us to surround ourselves with people that think high of us, so we can keep up acting accordingly to these believes and actually improve our life to match the perception or expectations they have of us. And if this good perceptions come along with love, their power over us exponentially increase and can magically transform us entirely. 

Although nothing of that is expressed directly on the book, I’m pretty sure that it was what Frances wanted to teach us with Little Lord Fauntleroy, so if you’d like to get the whole lesson, you should really give it a try and read it, because it is a beautiful children book with a lot of occult knowledge.
