It has been said that the only teachers we need are the ones we live with. Our children are no exception. A little poke here and a little jab there and they soon bring us to our senses. Remember when words sting, or feelings are hurt, it is an indication that there is something within which needs to be changed.
Life is all about love, for that is who we are in truth, created in love, born of love and love incarnate. Babies are the perfect example of this as they come forth in their pristine state, filled with that emotion. And if we return that love, they will grow up to be healthy, happy human beings, ready to share that love with the world at large.
Confusion is created by fear and when fear enters the equation, there is no telling what a human will resort to. It has been said that fear is the opposite to love. But love has no opposites, it can only be what it is. We always have the power to choose and despite fear entering the equation, it is only a feeling of being separated from the whole of who we are. We can still turn this around and restore ourselves to ourself.
