Watering The Seeds of Light

Written by Gede Prama

Everything is energy, that has been written by many friends in the spiritual world. And this energy will help the soul to grow if someone can process it properly and appropriately. When organic trash is placed under a flower tree, it will turn into a beautiful flower. The same thing also happens with negative energies.

As often seen on the highways, a number of older men still ride a large Harley Davidson motorcycle when their age is no longer young. This happens because they generally did not ride motorcycles when they were young. That’s the reason why the energy of riding a motorcycle reappears in old age. Some friends who never dated when they were young, their energy for dating comes after they have a number of grandchildren.

The story will be different if someone is tired of riding motorcycles when they were young. As a result, when the body is weakened because of old age they can feel safe, comfortable and quiet in silence and solitude. At the same time it becomes an important sign of where the soul will go after passing through the death gate.

The remaining material of growth then, for those who want a life which is full of meaning and full of light, learns to express the progressive energies at a young age. Especially because when the age is still under 35 years, the human body is generally still strong and sturdy. With that strong young body, the progressive energies such as motorcycles, courtship, wander very far, join this race, etc., then the possibility of life failing is much smaller.

Moreover, once the progressive energies are satisfactorily expressed when they are young, later when a person enters the old age (over 40 years), the energy that remains is only the subtle and the gentle energies. With a little touch of deep spiritual teachings, then the soul very easily becomes mature as well as a luminous soul.

This is exactly what is meant by glowing in young age and shining in old age. To put it simply, when children are under 20 years of age in particular, allow them to grow in all their styles and unique ways of expression. Learn not to force children to be mature when their biological age is still adolescence and very young.

As material of contemplation, when creations are allowed to grow naturally in their natural place, all creations were born to beautify life. Dolphins were born to beautify the ocean. Flowers bloom to beautify the garden. Consequently, the most important task of the parents is to find the natural calling of the children, and encourage them to grow beautifully there.

Children’s natural callings are often hidden behind the dreams of the moms during pregnancy, the toys that children love when they are toddlers, the dreams of children as a child, school lessons which are easily understood, how children spend most of their spare time, peers who surround them for decades.

The point is simple, learn to be sensitive, to read the children’s unique signs, never force them to follow the unfulfilled wishes of the parent. For example, parents fail to become doctors and the children are forced to become doctors. This kind of action is easy to make children end up like frangipani trees planted on a cold mountain. The children suffer, the parents are miserable.

On the path to guide children to grow up, always remember that children are friends of laughter at a young age as well as a source of light in old age. In this way, not only will the children survive, the soul of the parents also grows in a very healthy way. At the same time, the family grows into a light-filled soul garden. Always keep in your heart, those who take good care of the seeds of light in their children will find their old age to be full of light also.

About the author

Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
