Oftentimes I have written about the cosmic importance of families and homes and many take this as opposition to the seeming greater importance of worldly concerns. The reality lists toward the impossible harnessing of worldly affairs by adults with hungers left unfed as children when they could have been directed toward good, toward universal harmony. Those hungers are fed when they arise in children by adults who understand the importance of parenting.
The obvious spiritual wounds are evident in today’s world by behavior which should be mature in adult bodies. It is childish in no uncertain terms but now called boyish or youthful or darling or cute or even charismatic. Once we were called brats with no apology.
The universe, both visible and invisible, suffers when babies continue to make babies. And the scars are eternal. It takes a long time for undesirable behavior to be weeded out of the gene fields of humanity. It will be done sooner if we make a concerted effort to grow up.
In The Quiet Of This Night. . .
In the quiet of this night,
come to me and we will hold hands
and talk and I will show you
from high up you jumped.
The night will love you
and envelop you and you will find
that in the cold moon,
there is a heat that sustains
to show you where your home is.
Within the skirts of who you are,
you will gather
the children around you
and we will love each other.
The heart knows its own Amen. . . . .
