Spirituality teaches us to be open, if possible from the very beginning, so that what our Master wants to do, or Nature wants to do, can be done when we are in an open condition. This is, to my mind, a very important thing, that we should cultivate the habit of being open from the first day if it is possible.
Children are wonderful agents for family harmony, peace and blessedness. Children bring light and laughter, two essential ingredients for happiness, into our lives. They represent the future, not merely of the family into which they are born, but of the human race as a whole. In contributing to their growth and development, we therefore participate in a very definite manner in molding the future of the human race.
