Be Firm but Kind with Children

Cybertalk: Bodhinatha gives a wonderful upadesha based on the Living with Siva lesson of the day (178) called "Be Firm but Kind." This is one of the Positive Discipline principles. Children today must be told the reasons why for instructions and directions given to them, and such directions must be given in a kindly manner. The problem of giving directions in the form of questions is also discussed.

Remember, when the seal is broken and clear white light has flooded the mind, there is no more a gap between the inner and the outer. Even uncomplimentary states of consciousness can be dissolved through meditation and seeking again the light.
