It is so exciting to read these lines in chapter 1! As a parent who is already on the path of “raising myself first” I can vouch for these lines 100%. My children are my best teachers. I owe my spiritual awakening to them. I don’t look at them as “lesser than” me. I bow to the enlightened spirit inside them and I am always open to learning from them just the same way that I am open to teaching them. This is most likely why I have such a joyful, meaningful, fulfilling relationship with them.
