Let’s teach our children how to be awake
Let their natural essence be cultivated,
Let’s not put them in cardboard boxes,
Cookie cutter templates
Of appropriate living.
Let’s teach them to live by their
Hearts longing, their dreams
To explore their hunger,
Their natural gifts.
We who are older and wiser know
That if they are constrained they
Will be left wanting if they
Are not free.
Please let’s turn the page to a new
Era of consciousness,
Even if we ourselves do not understand it
Or could not allow it to manifest
As we lived in our boxes.
Should we not want more for our children
Than we have had for ourselves,
More in the realm of being awake and alive.
Support them, encourage them to
Blaze the trail of consciousness.
