Bringing a new human being into the world is a wonderful experience.
However, it also comes with a tremendous responsibility.
You have both contributed elements of your respective DNA chains which determined the nature of the physical body “delivered” to you.
However, the essence that inhabits that body is quite another thing!
The newly embodied essence returning to Earth in your family has already had many previous experiences on the physical plane. It is an essence which has chosen you for your qualities and weaknesses because they are precisely those it needs to learn the next lessons on its self-defined “roadmap of experience” that will ultimately lead it to enlightenment.
We are all the fruit of what we have been
and what we have decided to be.
As parents, we have to follow our own “roadmaps” and also provide the frameworks of those that shape our children’s lives. Understanding this can, for example, make it easier to appreciate how two children born of the same parents can be so completely different from one another.
