A lady was travelling in a train with an 8 year old kid. They both were reading books.
This seemed unbelievable to most of the fellow passengers. Then one of them got up and asked…”ma’am, in today world the kids who were born yesterday are playing with smartphones and this kid is reading. How come he is not playing with a phone or a tablet? How come he listens to you and how did you make him do that?”
To this the woman calmly replied “Sir, kids do not listen to us , they only copy us.”
A small sentence… a deep meaning.
Live Law Of Existence
From the day your baby is born, you are a teacher of spirit. Look upon spirituality as a skill in living, since that is what it is. Imparting these skills as early as possible by whatever means a child can understand.
Every child has a spiritual life already. This is because every child is born into the field of infinite creativity and pure awareness that is spirit. But not every child knows that this is true. Spirit must be cultivated; it must be nourished and encouraged. A child raised with spiritual skills will be able to answer the most basic questions about how the universe works; he or she will understand the source of creativity both within and outside of us; he or she will be able to practice non-judgment, acceptance, and truth, which will be free from fear and anxiety about the meaning of life.
Real spiritual growth changes a person in a paradoxical way, bringing both understanding and preserving innocence. Deeper than love, the one thing you can’t do without is innocence. Innocence is the source of love. It is openness.
Easiest way to teach children law of existence – practice following 7 laws child will copy you.
1. Everything is possible. We all have the gift of creating absolutely anything. There’s no limit to what we can do or be.
2. If you want to get something, give it. Always give with a happy heart. The greatest gift is feeling good.
3. When you make a choice, you change the future (karma). Your choices bring about changes. To make good choices, follow your heart. How do your choices make you feel?
4. Don’t say no—go with the flow. Create peace within by learning acceptance of what is outside our control.
5. Every time you wish or want, you plant a seed. Making your wish is like planting a seed and believing that it will grow. Let nature do the rest.
6. Be open to life and enjoy the journey. New ways and new ideas can lead to more happiness.
7. You are here for a reason. Your dharma is your purpose, path, or vision, the unique talent that you are here on Earth to share. Your dharma is your happiness.
As parents, we are not teaching our children hard-and-fast rules that must be heeded. We are inviting them into our own journey, into our sense of purpose, which never ends. It is a journey of ever-expanding meaning. Although very young children may not be able to understand what this means in words, your child can easily sense whether you find life exciting and wondrous. Your sense of purpose in the universe speaks far louder than any words.

Everything is possible – how? Stop Comparing Yourself to Others.
Joy is found when you stop comparing yourself to other people.
Be joyful – Joy does not come from what you do; it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you.
When you say, I enjoy doing this or that, it is really a misperception. It makes it appear that the joy comes from what you do, but that is not the case. Joy does not come from what you do, it flows into what you do and thus into this world from deep within you. The misperception that joy comes from what you do is normal, and it is also dangerous, because it creates the belief that joy is something that can be derived from something else, such as an activity or thing. You then look to the world to bring you joy, happiness. But it cannot do that. This is why many people live in constant frustration. The world is not giving them what they think they need.
Joy doesn’t come from the activities you do. Joy comes from within you. That’s the misperception of joy. The world won’t bring joy to you, you’ll need to bring joy it with you.
Here is a practice that will bring empowerment and creative expansion into your life. Make a list of a number of everyday routine activities that you perform frequently. Include activities that you may consider uninteresting, boring, tedious, irritating, or stressful. But don’t include anything that you hate or detest doing. That’s a case either for acceptance or for stopping what you do. The list may include traveling to and from work, buying groceries, doing your laundry, or anything that you find tedious or stressful in your daily work.
Then, whenever you are engaged in those activities, let them be a vehicle for alertness. Be absolutely present in what you do and sense the alert, alive stillness within you in the background of the activity.
You will soon find that what you do in such a state of heightened awareness, instead of being stressful, tedious, or irritating, is actually becoming enjoyable. To be more precise, what you are enjoying is not really the outward action but the inner dimension of consciousness that flows into the action. This is finding the joy of Being in what you are doing. If you feel your life lacks significance or is too stressful or tedious, it is because you haven’t brought that dimension into your life yet. Being conscious in what you do has not yet become your main aim.
The joy of Being is the joy of being conscious.
You don’t have to wait for something ‘meaningful’ to come into your life so that you can finally enjoy what you do. There is more meaning in joy than you will ever need. The ‘waiting to start living’ syndrome is one of the most common delusions of the unconscious state. Expansion and positive change on the outer level is much more likely to come into your life if you can enjoy what you are doing already, instead of waiting for some change so that you can start enjoying what you do.
