How to raise our children.

How to raise our children.

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said“Speak to us of children.”
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of life’s 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 your 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.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children.
As living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite.
And he bends you with his might.
That his arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness.
For even as he loves the arrow that flies.
So he loves also the bow that is stable.

Khalil Jibran – beautiful words – every single word of that poem carries the scent of the heavens. 

We should feel lucky that he chose us to carry His genetic codes.

“ He loves the arrows, but he loves the bow too.” 

We are only a vehicle of genetic material, but Shunyata ( nothingness ) is the ultimate creator, thinker, doer, master planner, and executor. 

HE IS EVERYTHING, yet all we have to say is, “ He is my son.” 

Ours is the Ego driven society.

Ego is all we know. 

Even if want to, we don’t know any other way to live or speak or act or behave. 

That shows us that there is ignorance of pandemic proportion. 

That’s why we need meditation, connect with a thoughtless state of nothingness, realize that NOTHINGNESS IS EVERYTHINGNESS , and then maybe, we can take a different path than what we all have been on so far.


Treat children as independent souls.

Love them, but don’t bind them with your expectations.

Respect their freedom to explore in life, rather than just giving haphazard answers to precious questions like,” Where is God?”

Let them explore this mysterious life, rather than just take them to temples and tell them to bow down to statues as their God.

He will believe this because he believes you.

If you haven’t found God, just say, ” I don’t know. “
