Weekly Newsletter: What if?
As a parent we often know what’s best for our children, even if they don’t. There are times when they ask for things we know they are not old enough or wise enough to handle. So, we say “no.” At other times we restrict their freedom — not to be cruel, but to protect them. We watch over them, guide them, and love them. Good parents always want what is best for their children, and they try to provide everything for the child’s needs.
Good parents also distinguish between what a child needs and what a child wants. If we give children everything they want, we risk spoiling them. So, we provide their needs, and try to find a balance in giving them the things they want. Parenting also involves knowing what a child really wants — not merely things, but relationships.
What if the Divine Parent treated us the same way? What if the Parent provided our needs and also a measure of our desires? But, what if the Divine Parent knows all along what are true wants are? There is so much we do not know, but The Divine thoroughly knows us. Our Divine Parent gives us exactly what we need at just the right time and in the right place, because the Divine Parent knows us better than we know ourselves. The Divine’s answer is the one we truly want.
