Family is so very important. Why? Because you made an agreement before you came here to learn from each other and to help each other to evolve and grow. Some of you are very close in temperament, style, and appearance, whilst others seem as if they belong to a different clan. Do you see the learning opportunities these differences offer you? “To learn what?” you ask. “To learn of pain and strife?” No, to learn to love each other no matter what. You can learn this with all those around you, to be sure—with friends, enemies, and distant strangers—but your family is ever-present, if not physically, then in your very genes. You may try to forget them, but they do not go away. This is because they will always have this very basic lesson to teach you. Thank them, and then get back to work on your lessons.
