Raise an Angel of Light
Any child may be an angel of light, a being entrusted with a mission to convey the Truth to others, to save people, and to lead them to happiness. There is one key recommended by this author that can encourage any child to attain her or his purpose in life and develop into a deeper human being.
Find out what the key is, here:
It is vital for an angel of light to attain a deep understanding of people. One way to foster this process is to encourage your child to read as much literature as possible that touches the soul.
The minds of these sorts of people need to be nourished. Although they are born with great potential, this cannot be fulfilled unless they receive sufficient nourishment for their souls. Parents and grandparents who study and practice the Truth in their daily lives will naturally provide an ideal environment in which children can develop their true potential for the future.
In China there is a saying, “Virtue exists in a house which has smelled of books for one hundred years.” What this means is that if the parents read a lot it will be easy for children to adopt the same lifestyle.
It is necessary for angels of light to be taught what other angels have achieved in the past. This will become the foundation from which they can take the next step, so they should be encouraged to study the words and writings of great figures in the past. This will serve as a grounding, allowing them to achieve great things once they become members of society. If these children are encouraged while still young to read the words and writings of the angels who preceded them, their development will be straightforward and they will follow a right path.
But it is also important that angels of light be encouraged to play. Play serves to assist a child’s overall intellectual development, providing numerous experiences that are impossible to gain through study alone. Play can teach a child the importance of keeping promises, the roles of leader and follower, and develop creativity.
