within


"If you try to teach your children
all the fact and answers
you think they need to know,
they will end up knowing nothing.
If instead you help them look
deep within themselves,
you will have led them to the source,
from where all answers flow."
~William Martin, The Parent's Tao Te Ching

yep and yep. If we try to not teach them some things that sometimes seems much more worthwhile than trying to teach them others!

I couldn't agree more. I believe that observation, in all matters, is the best teacher of all.
