“Teach by example. Children look over their shoulders. Set up your lessons by your actions—those guided by your heart, guided by Divine.
“Give up your despair and spend your energy working on your connection to Divine, and share that with them. If you give them an example of despair, that is what they will learn. This is not about hype, and it is not what you say to them.
“There’s a divine game going on. Open yourself to learning what is being provided by this divine game. There is method to this madness. You’re learning that there’s something to work out—a lesson about Heart. This is not about hope, it is about acceptance: accepting events, accepting life, accepting them. This is the best gift that you can pass on to your children.”
