What Families Are All About


What Families Are All About

Living in a family
is like being one of the spokes of a wheel.
We are all busily immersed
in our various activities during the day
but at day's end our consciousness
once again returns to the hub
the hub of family life
to complete the whole.


In healthy family life, each member gives (babies give us laughs) and takes. In this way each has the opportunity to give and receive, everyone receiving the benefits of both. Family provides a strong support unit in times of stress and illness. Family support helps us work through life's ups and downs.

As parents, our children's dependency ties us to responsibilities, giving us the opportunity to grow out of our self-serving ways. Children have us as a role model to emulate and as someone to guide and support them till independence day. And when our parents become children again through old age or illness, we have the responsibility to care for them.

On the world scale
all the peoples of earth
are our extended family.
Our individual family
the example of this on a small scale.


Spare time can be spent improving the environment for all and serving those where their needs may lie. We need to feel and show the same concern for others that we feel for ourselves and our families by attitude and by action, to the extent our responsibilities allow.

Families give us a chance to grow in consciousness as individuals, by broadening our concept of what it means to be part of the world family.

When we feel at One with all
we begin to realize
the same oneness in all
the One Spirit that powers
and guides
everyone and everything.
