Letting Go with Guy Finley

Question: What steps can one take to point young children in their right path so they won’t have to face so many problems growing up?

Answer: Children and sponges have a lot in common. They soak up what is around them. Words that are in contrast with conditions are soaked up by children in the form of conflict. Our task is first to learn how to learn ourselves. As we actually begin learning, our very nature becomes our teacher. This is the best we can do for children until they are old enough to begin connecting their aches and pains with the choices made by their “intelligence.”
