sheltering a child (or anyone – even you) from the world (or other religions, belief systems, countries, cultures, etc.) doesn’t protect them from it. everything is connected, and the truth will seek them out, one way or another.
would you rather experience it through shock and surprise, or being open and learning about fellow adventurers here as you live your life? prejudice, or inherent tolerance? cacophony, or an ever-changing orchestra? you certainly don’t need to agree with everything, or everyone, but playing the cognitive dissonance card only works for so long…
control is egoic, and fear-based. love, however, is like water, and always finds the path of least resistance – and is always coupled with universal (ie. infinite) patience. when it comes to matters of the human, we’re quite permeable… fortunately.
build your shelter, but don’t forget the windows.
