Practical Wisdom for Spiritual Mastery
Safeguarding the purity of our children in a world of escalating materialism requires a deep understanding and wisdom on the part of the parents, grandparents and other caregivers.
They walk among us seemingly as ordinary children. But then we look again, for something in their eyes catches our attention – a certain knowingness, an ancient wisdom coupled with a purity so profound that it stops us in our tracks. Surely the masters throughout the ages, the light-bearers of humanity, looked out at the world with just such clarity.
They may sit in a highchair with egg on their faces, but they wear it with dignity, like a monarch wearing a bejeweled crown. They watch us with a benign tolerance that leaves us wondering whether they view themselves as the parents and us as the children.
Whether they shrink from the abrasive and intrusive presence of the world or reach eagerly for it with dimpled, chubby hands, their courage and determination is evident from their very first faltering step. When finally they can speak, their questions are startling in their probing simplicity and their observations spellbinding in their elegant perceptiveness. These are the exceptional children we are privileged to parent.Click here to visit the Book Library and get a preview of Almine's books
