In the child to mother or father relationship you know
yourself to be young, not as powerful or as knowledgeable as the higher consciousness
itself but at the same time beloved of it and intimately sharing in its nature and
purposes. Certainly its fine for a seeker to imagine or strive to develop
this mood without actually being in the achieved state. The ideals of this
relationship are lofty and comforting. The mood
itself, however, becomes established usually
only after considerable purification through the awe, servant, and friend relationships.
Most scriptures strongly advocate that you accept you are a son or
daughter, a child of the Lord. Its fine, certainly, to start your mood of love with
this child relationship as long as
you grow in the other attributes which will help you be a loyal and constantly loving
Its wonderful to think in a religious sense that the Lord is like a
father or mother who is deeply concerned about the welfare and happiness of his or her
child, and who will accept and love that child as part of its own being forever.
Indeed, the higher consciousness will guide and raise you up into the fullness of life.
Youll find it most precious to have an ongoing mood, a momentum in your heart, which
continually affirms such an intimate relationship with the higher consciousness. Love
