    How to find your very own Light is something that is not taught to our young that well anymore
    Never finding it soon enough can be the cause of the world destruction's core
    Your true identity will be found if you search out this fact
    Don’t wait any longer, now it is the time to act
    If you don’t your life can be filled by the many woes
    By following someone else’s carrot in front of your nose
    You will be a slave to another’s prosperity
    And in a city you only will see your future success
    You’ll be subjected to famine, disease, war and insanity all at its best
    See if you can put down the artificial light and life everyone else has embraced
    If not our societies destruction will come about and slavery for the human race
    The spirit of the moment will use you as its very own tool
    The violence and destruction infecting most with the spirit of a fool
    And even though conscience won’t see what they are doing is not right
    Their subconscious follows the universal law for all that don’t serve their proper Light
    The payment is required when the toll line is reached its goal
    Compounding in the loss of life, light and soul.

    Only when a human being found a true spiritual teacher can She/He finds what you call the light :) Not that the answer is not there before the teacher come along, but the guidance to how one realize the answer are needed for most people, and that is what the teacher give. Guidance to look within our own being. or should i say within our own spiritual being.

    I started reading him when I was in my twenties. I really wasn't ready for it then. However, forty years later and it all makes sense. I have read the entire series.

    Most Christians not only do not comprehend the idea of God inside you, they outright reject it as impossible, almost a blasphemy to consider it. God is wholly external to them. So that's not a good starting place to teach children to find that Light in themselves. :(

    It would sound like we teach opposites. I personally am careful how and what I teach. There is the law of karma, or what you sow so shall you reap....but there is also a much worst warning given for teachers for teaching incorrectly.

    And if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around his neck.

    Error is always more busy than ignorance. Ignorance is a blank sheet on which we can write; but error is a scribbled one, from which we must first erase. Ignorance is content to stand still with it's back to the truth, but error is more presumptuous, and proceeds in the wrong direction. Ignorance has no light, but error follows a false one. The consequences are, that error, when its steps are retraced, has further to go before it can arrive at the truth, than ignorance.

    If your not a biblical person then I would show you wisdom about teaching from even Nostradamus's name:
    "No Star (no guiding light) dam us" can teach the same true. Its all in how you light inside you translates it in truth or error.

    I use to live in a big city but moved to the county to find out how hard it is to come away from the city life. I live on the outskirts in a small town of 400 - 500 people. I go into the nearest city 2 times a month usually to get groceries. I study nature. I feed a troop of chickadees everyday peanut butter that they really love and are always competing for. Deer turkeys and sometimes bears and skunks walk through the property regularly. You can know who has your back covered and lives close. Above all I found my identity here which I understand is my own light that is within me, who I really want to be. Something I lost in the city. I work with youth to find their own light then they don't need me so much. They in turn teach others the same skills. One candle can light many and not one second of its life would be lost. Its not how much time we have.....it's what you do with time that counts. Most teachers today teach money and how to serve the system of the cities.....they forget who feeds them, and they forget who gave them their life and light.

    I'm not sure what any of this has to do with what I said. Are you saying that to teach a child that God can be found within themselves, is teaching an error and that God will punish you for teaching that? I thought you said you should teach a child to find God within. Now you say I teach the opposite of that, and that is an error against God?

    What do you mean by saying the Light, with a capital L, which is divine Light, is inside the child? How is that opposite to what I said?

    Yes I see it is more about finding the potential of the light that comes from within, it is from the heart with Love.

    To me that is the image we are created in, it is the potential we all can find, it is a connection with the light.

    Regards Tony

    I very much doubt they forget farmers are producing their food and it is their parents who gave them life.
    So, you moved to live what is, in my opinion, a dull life dedicated to things we have been doing for ages rather than living in such a way as most of those things are taken care of and you can dedicate more time towards reaching your potential and fulfillment.
    And lots of people move from the city to the country, and even to self-sustaining communes. That doesn't really make your goals or life or passions any different than so many people throughout the history of our species, probably even before our species in other species of homo.
    And that is still no way to access you claims. I moved from the country to the city and things have never been better for me.

    And know you can't rely on them for much when you don't fit in. It is my opinion and experience that many in such a setting have let their Light be snuffed out by giving it to invisible men in the sky and false hope and promises, throwing their lives away to appease a zombie and allowing themselves to live a dogma that is spoonfed to them.

    I believe a lot of people are afraid to be alone. I am not. I walk with My God ever day through that I am who I am and the source of what inspires me. I see so much loneliness in cities now where people live alone surrounded by people yet so lonely. It shows in the twisted beings they become as time hardens them.

    If we were to isolate you, you would break down. The human psyche cannot handle actual isolation from others.

    I have been isolated too....but take the time to know this about me. I accepted you as you are. As a Christian I did not see you as my enemy. I reached out to you as a friend.Everybody should never be placed as being the same in a group. Some will rise higher than others.I sensed loneliness from the very beginning and wanted you to know that when I'm online you can contact me anytime. I try and be there for you. Take care for now.

    Out of curiosity, to what extent? Isolation and loneliness (as in, actually having extremely limited to no contact with other humans) are well documented to reek havoc upon the mind and body. Even those with disorders and conditions that leave them needing more isolation than average still do require human contact to properly function. In more extreme examples, we can even see where "feral children" do not learn how to behave and socialize as encultured humans do, and even the way they walk is entirely different from how you or I would.

    I learned from so many what I would consider good teachers. One I had the chance when I was much younger to studied from was Joseph Campbell which allowed me to comprehend mythology like I never could before.

    I understand this is why we have our Internet, cell phones and artificial life and have become so attracted to it.
