During the first several years that our development continues outside the womb we are utterly helpless, decisively dependent on our families for our every need.
From conception to several years, human body development continues outside the womb. This development demands womb like physical and mental environment. Aatma in new human body expects slow and step by step gradually expansion of new body’s universe, in sync with expansion of inner universe.
Being a parent, you are the caretaker of this expansion processes, both the microcosm and macrocosm (Since child will continuously build perceptions about his/her universe outside).
Such a sacred duty! Being a messenger of the God! Helping parallel universes to move towards the goal of self-realization. If you are blessed parent, Good luck!
