“The most precise reflection of the Human Species is the emotional and physical health of children. When adults are confronted with children of suffering, the adults are observing a reflection of themselves, of the Human Species—acknowledged or not. All Human adversity, especially that experienced by children, is the product of Human—to—Human interactions. Adults instigate the inflicted suffering upon children through religious convictions, the conducts of war, predatory gratification (sexual and psychological), and the refusal to transcend the egoistic Human—to—Human madness that dominates the global society. Adults do not comprehend children as spiritual beings, but more as extensions of themselves (called family), or property, or interference to a preferred lifestyle. Adults do not perceive that small bundle of spiritual energy that needs the guidance of the spiritually capable adult to blossom into a force of love.
Some groups of adults, such as animal or environmental activists, exhaust millions of dollars and enormous Human effort to end animal and environmental abuse. This is an example of the spiritual disconnect that pervades the Human Species. If Human Beings are inclined to impose brutality upon each other, and particularly our children, it is completely implausible that Human Beings will be coerced into treating animals or the environment any better. This is the typical reaction of catering to the symptom and not the disease. Groups such as these are merely choosing the easy fight, albeit an unwinnable fight. The only sustainable way to improve Human—to—Nature relationships is to evolve the force of unconditional love within the Human Species. These challenging circumstances within Creation are spiritual issues and must be addressed accordingly.
Adults, meaning all adults, must activate their collective responsibility to the children. An adult will have one of four levels of awareness of how she or he influences children : (1) aware of all influences, in real time (2) partially aware in real time, but mostly aware after the fact (3) partially aware after the fact, but mostly not aware (4) not aware of the influences. To become aware in the moment, in real time, is a process of spiritual alignment. Through spiritual efforts, the adult exercises a choice to develop into an influence of value to the children…or not.”
