It is the primary belief in many eastern countries that humanity is composed by shards broken from one single soul. This means that every person on this earth holds a piece of the big picture, and humanity itself. What does this concept show us?
It does not matter what religion or belief system you look at. Humanity is viewed as a whole, and in some way, every person is connected in some way. Laws of attraction claim that all humans are connected to each other biologically, to the world in a chemical way, and to the universe at birth. Therefore, it does not matter what our personal beliefs are, a single concept holds true. Each and every person lives and thrives through the power of connecting with others.
The problem with the way hectic life currently runs is that we feel as though we should live independently from the rest of society. We take the time to interact with others on a daily basis, but at the end of the day, we wonder off into our own space alone. This may suffice if you live completely on your own. As a parent, you must change this view on life. You are now responsible for the life of another person. You child is not able to act on their own, and it is your responsibility to consider their personal and social needs.
