Dear XXXX -- The concept that we are one is a difficult one for a
child to grasp. Model your beliefs for him -- that is, try in every
situation to follow your highest beliefs. The integrity of your life
will teach him. If you do this, you, yourself, will be constantly
growing and stretching and changing and your child will see your
effort. He will come to understand that changing his understanding
of "God" is okay, that we all learn as we grow and it's unending.
Also, please know that your child comes into this life with his own
path to follow and lessons to learn. It may be that no matter how you
model your beliefs, he will resist learning that we are all one.
Speaking from experience, this can be very hard for a parent to
accept and you might feel you have "failed." When you look at
yourself and realize you lived with integrity, hopefully you will be
content and happy with your own life regardless of what your child
Peace and blessings Kathleen
