Destination

My father always said:
 

I held your hand
and taught you to walk;
One day
when you’ll become a father
you too will do the same

But remember always
to simply emulate
not to replicate,
for my guidance
is merely a path
not the destination

With the
changing times
paths also change
and if you discover
a different and progressive path
to reach the destination
simply discard mine

Impose not on your children
your footprints, rules and criterion
simply lend them
a helping hand
that’s full of true love and motivation
so that they experience Freedom
to walk on a path
that will lead them
to the destination

Parenting is nothing
but a path
which changes
generation after generation
but never the destination.
 
The destination
always is emancipation
of the Self.

Comment "If you want to experience God, become a parent. That is closest you will ever get to shaping someone else' destiny who puts complete and unconditional trust in you."
