Spiritual Parenting

“Your Children are not your children! They are the sons and daughters of Life is longing for itself! They come ‘through’ you but not from you And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you! You may give them our love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts! You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow! Which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams! You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you!” -Kahil Gibran

Children are the physical outcome of the energy of creating – the sexual union of male and female. They are our companions on the path of Enlightenment. They are truly the testing ground of our spiritual awareness. There is nothing much we need to teach them but much we can learn from them.
