It is all Love

Dear Son,

I don’t talk much about my spirituality.  I believe that how we find meaning in the universe is incredibly private.  I want to be careful as I raise you to help you make up your mind for yourself, rather than teaching you to think as I think.  I hope that you will look at the world with fresh new eyes, and learn the same lessons that I did, but I don’t have all of the answers.  It’s very possible that you will grow up to be much wiser than me.

One of the things I have come to believe after years of searching for meanings and answers is this:  The Universe is a work of Loving Consciousness.  We are not billions of human beings with separate minds, we are all facets of one great and incredible mind, so small that we only remember that we are part of something bigger once in a long while .  We are the many ways it tries to understand itself.  Love and Curiosity are the forces that make reality.

I know that better now that I am awaiting your birth than ever before.  My life seems to move so much faster now that you are on the way.  There is so much growth and change and happiness.  Sometimes it is scary – it is easy to get overwhelmed by what I don’t know, but those doubts and fears are just there to help me stay curious and humble.  They are there to keep me open so that I can do the best job I can.

In Love and Curiosity,

Dad
