Learn to keep your eye not upon the world that men create, but upon the world that permits men their creations.

Question: How can we parents, who are just beginning to obtain the least bit of understanding of the Truth, best instill in our children the will to seek and understand the Truth for themselves?

We live in a world that is far greater in its invisible influences than what we experience with our eyes and ears. This means that any real effort to put the Truth first with your children means that they will experience your wish and receive the right encouragement from your attempts. We must all increasingly learn to stop believing in pictures we have of ourselves and opt for what Reality reveals to us. This is our healing… and eventually, everyone else’s.
