    WHAT DO OUR CHILDREN LEARN AT SCHOOL?
    That two and two make four;
    And that Paris is the Capital of France.
    But, where and when are they going to learn
    Who and what they and we all truly are?
    Why don’t we ourselves ask them: ‘Do you know who you are?’
    And then tell them: ‘You are a unique marvel; each one of us is.
    There is no other being, in the whole of Creation,
    Who is exactly like you and me.
    What’s more, during all the millions of years
    That have come and gone, since humankind’s evolution and that of the Earth began,
    And however many more are still to come,
    There has never been another being like you and me;
    And there never will be.

    Humankind eagerly searches for miracles and into all kinds of mysteries.
    Why then is it so hard for us to recognise
    That we are the greatest mystery of all and
    That the physical bodies each one of us is living in
    Is one of the greatest miracles that can be found in our world?
    That means everybody is being born into their own private miracle.
    Just look at your whole body, then your arms, hands and fingers; legs, feet and toes;
    See how cleverly everything moves and works together!
    It’s nothing short of a magnificent work of art and a masterpiece of engineering!
    Don’t you think that’s worthy of being called a miracle, my child?

    And while I’m about it, if you want our world to become a better place
    For all to share, my child, you need to know that we humans
    Have been given freedom of choice
    And that behaviour, yours, the same as mine and everybody else’s,
    Is not accidental, but it is always chosen.
    You need to know that even making no choice is a choice.
    It is up to us to choose which way we wish to react to those around us
    And which way we behave, in all situations.
    When finally everybody knows this and acts on their knowledge,
    When everybody’s behaviour is always a conscious choice,
    We will have freed ourselves and our world
    From the chains and shackles of many lifetimes of the ignorance
    That helped us – all together – to create the state our world is in, now.

    It’s not going to be easy.
    We brought many of our behaviour patterns with us,
    From previous lifetimes.
    That’s why they are now so deeply ingrained that they can be difficult to change.
    But rejoice, my child, each new lifetime presents everybody
    With fresh opportunities for doing their share
    Of creating a world that will come ever closer to the one we
    Can now only see in our dreams:
    A world where all live together in peace and harmony,
    Where cruelty and unkindness are no longer known.

    Freedom of choice is the only true freedom human beings have
    And everybody is always being presented with choices.
    That is why it is of the greatest importance that you, my child,
    Learn to choose wisely.
    Our Divine Mother/Father wants us to grow and evolve;
    Everybody’s potential is unlimited and
    It is within your reach, as well as everybody else’s, to strive to live like
    One of your ideals, maybe
    Mother Theresa, Saint Joan of Arc,
    Shakespeare, Michelangelo, or Beethoven.

    Everybody is wandering about in a body of their own;
    This creates the illusion that we are all separate from each other.
    Let that not fool you, my child.
    Know that nothing could be further from the truth,
    Because inside we are all one and all life is one big family;
    And in spirit we are all one.
    That is why when we hurt one, we hurt everybody, including ourselves.
    Knowing that and also that each is a miracle and a marvel,
    Just like you are, my child, could you ever hurt or harm another?

    You have come into this lifetime to learn that we are all here together,
    To help us learn individually and as a race,
    To love wisely, to cherish one another,
    And to help and support each other.
    We are all responsible for ourselves and our world;
    And we all need to work together and everybody do own their bit
    Of making our world a better place for everything that shares it with us;
    A world that is worthy of all its children, including humankind.
    For we are all the children of the One.
