Drawing On The Source
An individual who needs to realize and draw upon God's light, life and power for health and sustenance, cannot make the grade so long as he is so situated that it is the way of least resistance to let others do for him that which they feel impelled, from love or any other motive, to do.
Each one of us is inseparably one with God, the source and substance of life and wisdom and every good. Each one must draw upon the source for his own substance, and for his own light, and for his own will power.
Parents too often claim the children who come to them as their own, and feel that they must think for them and do for them and take responsibilities for them. This is done until the child loses his God-given iniative and "lets down" and comes from habit and comes from others. This thought grows up with him, but all the time he resents this state of affairs, yet he has not developed the ability to launch out for himself, nor does he know that he possesses enough latent wisdom to work out his difficulties.
