God, in the news on TV last night, there was a segment about children and divorce. Earlier you said, “Your divorce rates are so high, it would be better for all of you to get divorced first before getting married.” Actually, I still don’t get that.
It’s sarcasm, child. I was being sarcastic.
Oh. Right. Anyway. There are major concerns now about how children are affected by separation and divorce of couples. There were proposals suggested where committees or support groups which families in trouble can turn to before, during or even after divorce. And these will be centred mostly on the welfare of the children. I myself am divorced. And I believe that this happened for a purpose. In order for me to be able to relate to others who are in the same position. You know, like I’m a guinea pig.
So what is your question, child?
So my question is–if getting divorced is the agenda of a soul then…um…then wouldn’t that be the agenda of other souls as well if they happen to get divorced?
Well, then…then…argh! I don’t know what I’m talking about! Help!
Don’t worry. I know what you’re talking about. Tell Me-how are your children?
My children? They’re fine. In fact, they’re great. These days I will look at them (sometimes when they’re asleep or doing their own thing) and wonder what I did to deserve them. I love them so much I’m bursting with it. And it is definitely reciprocated. Lots of hugs and kisses and joy.
I Am very happy for you, dear one.
Have they always been that way?
Oh no. Not at all. Thinking about it now, I like to believe they’re happy now because I’m happy now. Not all the time, of course. There are episodes of fear here and there but nowadays they are few and far between. My OS (Operating System) is joy and I guess that sort of rubs off on them.
Why are you happy?
Because of You, of course!
No, child, it’s because of you. It is your Power Within. You found you. You know who you really are. Therefore, you also know who your children are. Who are they?
They are God. They too have You within. They have the Power Within.
Yes. Although, they do not know it yet. But rest assured, their souls already do. Your souls are one. What your soul knows, your children’s souls know as well. What they are lacking right now, is the awareness of it. Not full awareness yet. Children are meant to enjoy life without the burdens of the world upon their shoulders. That is what full awareness is all about. Awareness of the problems of your world as well as the joy. But do not worry, I will know exactly when their full awareness will kick in. I know when they will be ready. Your children have now experienced the ups and downs of a relationship between a husband and a wife. It has its advantages as well as disadvantages. Your children may observe and say, “I won’t do that when I have a relationship,” which is also known as The Law of Retraction which applies to ongoing relationships or after a relationship has ended. Are you and your ex-husband on good terms?
Oh yes. He and his partner. I am blessed to have such an understanding couple. In fact, my kids stay with them at least a month during the school/festive holidays every other year. And my ex-in laws and their large families and relatives are very loving and affectionate. My kids enjoy their stay with them every time (while I miss them like crazy and get depressed from boredom).
That when relationships are on the up and up, it rubs off on the children. Once a couple are not on good terms, as in the problems they have are not resolved and do not have an amicable agreement, there will be unrest as well with those who are involved or somehow related to that couple. Good feelings all round will rub off on everyone. So, to get back to your unclear question about children and divorce, the key to the well being of the children is in the well-being of the relationship of their parents. If it is the agenda of two souls to go their separate ways then it is their agenda. No one has the power to keep them together except the couple themselves. But there is something the couple can do which is in their power. And that is to end the relationship on good terms. To end the relationship amicably. To have peace in their hearts when they finally decide to go their separate ways. Because the children will never be separated from them as long as the family is still in this realm. The children are the couples’ (as you call it) flesh and blood. Always keep that in mind. The two partners are going their separate ways because now their souls wish to seek their truths in different paths. But the soul is still one with the children. And when one partner is not coming from his or her soul then the physical body would wish to cut off ties permanently. Which will of course affect the children. You are what you create. The only thing to do is to wish this soul well which is probably not going to happen. Be well, I mean. Now, all these advice I Am giving are on the spiritual aspect of a relationship. There are more complex issues when it comes to the matters of your material world which I know you would rather not get into because–
Because I’m clueless about them. Let’s leave that to the lawyers and mediators or whoever.
Yes. Let’s do that. Let Me just say this–once a couple is coming from their souls when it comes to ending or repairing a relationship then everything else will fall into place. And it will not only benefit the children but everyone who knows them.
A happy ending.
There is no end, dear one.
That’s not what I–oh never mind.
