Toddlers are shown flash cards or other educational materials so they can have a head start in school. You are only "successful" in school if you get good grades, which enables you to get a "good" job. When you have a good job, you can make a lot of money, and you can but all kinds of nice things, take vacations, etc. When you have everything you could ever possibly want, you must be happy, or so it is said.
All of these steps, all of society geared toward this, so we can be happy. What does this give us? It gives us families that are not together --- we lack community. Communities foster a remembrance of God --- where two are gathered in his name.
A community is not just a family. It is groups of families and friends who have chosen to closely live and work together, reflecting the wholeness that we are. The Native Americans and other indigenous cultures lived together in communities. They lacked for nothing because they realized that there was nothing they needed to achieve or gain to be happy. They knew that their happiness was intrinsic to who they were as an individual and also as part of the community, and their happiness was also reflected back to them through their relationship with others and with their Creator.

Lawrence is the author of several books on emotional and spiritual healing, including the latest "The Divine Speaks (Volume 1): Sayings About Life, Love, and God." which can be purchased on Amazon (link below). Now the statements you have enjoyed electronically are presented in this new book in a divinely guided order which takes the reader on a powerful journey of remembrance, bringing about great healing and personal growth. http://a.co/51Urbqf
