Attachment becomes obstacles in life or darkness in life or makes you ignorant.

It doesn't mean that you should not love your children, siblings, and parents. You can love them but you must never have attachment to them. Then, what is attachment and what is love? Attachment makes you long for things unconditionally. Attachment originates from desire. Love starts with blessing. What makes things or people change for the better is blessing and what makes them change for the worse is attachment. People don't distinguish attachment from blessing. They misunderstand attachment as love, or love as attachment and take actions.

The attachment makes, for example, you think your son "MY" son and your daughter "MY" daughter. You are not aware, however, that the attachment makes your children and siblings worse. Children are they, themselves and not you, yourself. If you have good thoughts and good will, you should practice them first for yourself. And then you can teach them to your children. It is wrong that you don't teach your children in that way and only look to them to do what you want. If you teach them they will do what you want naturally. You only want them to do things without teaching them. It is the same as wanting them to do something impossible.

The biggest love is teaching. Why do you send children to school? Don't you send them to school to make them be taught by other people about what you cannot teach for yourself ? Sending to school is love. Teaching children originates from the intention that you help them acquire blessing for themselves through learning.

If you consider these things useless there will not be any hope in the world where you live. Hope is the very thing you make and grow up. It is really rare that what you have never made and grown up happens in your surroundings. In order to understand these things, you need Enlightenment and learning. Especially, what is considered the most important during the process of learning is life. If you don't know life it is certain that you can never learn love.

Even though you don't study and learn at all in school, if you can learn about life properly you can live superbly. However much and high you have scholastic abilities, if you don't know about life how can you lead your life? Therefore, you must always think life precious and must hold the confidence that you lead your life well and make it more brilliant and bless it through endless future.
