What is the purpose of education? What do we want for our children? For ourselves? What do we mean by success? What is our goal in life?
We begin life full of eagerness with a sense of wonder. The possibilities are unlimited; yet somewhere along the line we become fearful and skeptical. As we continue into adulthood, we become confined to what we know. This not only causes us to suffer but also presents significant obstacles to our spiritual development.
Our parents, school and environment influence our personality. The stars and the planets influence our development through the different stages of our life. Learning to live by universal principles such as love, truth and wisdom will ensure our success in life, both materially and spiritually.
“We must teach our children to tell the truth and nothing but the truth. We must teach our children the law of love. Love is law, but conscious love. About the age of fourteen we must teach our children the mysteries of sex. Therefore, based upon this triple aspect of sanctity and perfection, our children will grow spiritually. Thus, whosoever guides their children by this triple aspect of perfection will have established a foundation of steel for their happiness.”
Samael Aun Weor
