QUESTION: I have read your book, How to raise an Exceptional Child. It’s been really helpful in raising our child. We too, try and make our home a little bit of heaven on Earth. Are there any areas of the “outside world” that your daughter Jaylene has found challenging because of the altered reality she has grown up in?
ANSWER: Jaylene has never been blamed, so she doesn’t understand guilt. She has never experienced the “silent treatment” that some people use to convey their displeasure. She finds it very confusing when encountering this and it produces a knot of tension in her.
Because she’s so empathic, the confusing feelings of others are exhausting to her. She craves solitude when she comes out of school. On the plus side however, it helps her see through the facade others hide behind. Her comment to me recently was: “Mom, do you know, I am the only one in my school choir who doesn’t have a double life?” I answered her, “It’s called having integrity.”
The answer to helping a young person cope with the chaotic circumstances of their environment : lots of rest and solitude .

Being around the public creates a deep tension in a master. The only way to appreciate their folly, and to see it in a poetic light, is to observe them from Inner Space: from the outside looking in .
Excellent perspective from Almone ,as always! Special acknowledgement to Mo for his feedback, too.
Such good advice. 🙂

This is poignant for me today, especially with experiencing an attitude change with my inner elder.

I agree Phoebe , the Inner Elder aspect for me also xx
It was and maybe still is one of the greatest challenge that i face to look at public from inner space specially when their actions affect me . Withnesing the hell they have created for themselves full of dysfunctionality . I always wished that i knew a way that i could show them their true self which is full of glory beauty and happiness . Which is empty of all types programming ,which is so pure that only in absolute silence it can be experienced. Tell them that life is not about anything that they crave for . Tell them that what they’ve been searching for , during their whole life; has always been with them.
Later i realized they are in their own process of evolution too and maybe it’s not my duty to show them anything, they will experience it when the time is right .
Many thanks for this question
