Your Way, Our Way, Their Way

Show them not your way

 but our way

and they’ll find their way.

An explanation of the aphorism.

Your way
We often try to influence people to adopt our perspectives or our truths or even our desires. Particularly our children. All in well-meaning.

Our way
We lose sight of the community. We forget that we survive together or not at all. Humanity’s way is our way. If we can educate each other and the next generation about the dignity of life and the necessity of community, we will build the foundation upon which humanity can thrive.

Their way
The holy force of life and love lives within us all. Trust the youth to find their place in the struggle of the community. They want nothing more than to do their part in the common good. The basic pursuit of happiness stems from a desire to protect and nourish a healthy and secure family. Humanity is our family. Our particular family cell is just that, a cell in the body.

Epilogue
A few cancerous cells in the body of humanity try to convince us that we must pursuit money to get to happiness. That’s the perspective of greed. It’s ridiculous, but it is no easy task to strengthen the forces of compassion to defeat the small but powerful forces spreading this deadly lie. We should not forget that we struggle—together with our great family and the holy force of life—on the side of love, beauty, justice, truth and mercy.
