Biological and Spiritual Growth (#S337)
Optimal development in children is thwarted by a variety of factors from modern hospital delivery methods to the educational system itself. Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and Magical Child, suggests that current problems with child raising are so immense as to be virtually insolvable. However, parents who are truly concerned must begin by discovering within themselves the spiritual nature of love.
The Guru Principle (#S347)
When the guru teaches, says Joseph Chilton Pearce, he does so not through the intellect but by opening the heart to spiritual experience. Pearce is a devotee of Siddha Yoga as taught by Swami Muktananda and his successor Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. He compares the guru-disciple relationship to the bonding relationship which occurs between parent and child.
|"Now, emotional energy proves to be the most awesome thing in the universe. Emotional energy is the energy that hold all patterns in their pattern form, that relates everything together in our life. Emotional energy pulls everything into its formal relationship and maintains all relationship."|
