My beloved children,
I gave birth to you, I raised you, I supported you, I took care of you, I protected you, I gave you the best of myself, on all levels, both emotionally and financially.
I feel I have fulfilled my role. What I had to do as a parent, I did to the best of my ability.
I thank you for the meaning and completeness you gifted my life.
Now you have your own life to live, your own role to play, and your own journey to make.
I release you from my embrace and release myself from my responsibility toward you.
Fly with your own wings.
Spread the values, the knowledge and the principles I instilled in you.
Teach others what I have taught you, embrace every existence with the love I have filled you with.
Help whomever you encounter in your life, enchant, awaken souls, spread joy, optimism and happiness to people all over the world.
I wish only the best for you, A Droplet's Journey, and for you, Beauty.
I love you with all my heart, children of my soul.
I am proud of you.

How many other’s lives and relationships have been sacrificed to the need to satisfy delusions and egoism? How many of those mechanisms, that automatically alter our self-image, are fueled by social conditioning and erroneous beliefs that hold us captive in our own delusions.
