When a Child Comes... – A Webcomic
Most of us haven't read a comic since we were kids. Let's change that. This webcomic looks at how in the process of so-called growing up, too many of us lose touch with life.

Most of us haven't read a comic since we were kids. Let's change that. This webcomic looks at how in the process of so-called growing up, too many of us lose touch with life. But when a child comes, it's a chance to get out of the self-created bubbles that insulate us.

This is really nice. Hope this webcomic reaches every parent so that they stop teaching children and become a humble student of their child in knowing life. I am one such student learning from my child

Namaskaram Sadhguru, as you have rightly pointed out that every grown up/parent should stop teaching the children and instead start learning from the children.There is so much to learn from the children.Pranams !!

Neither advice nor threatening works ever; with anybody: young or old. AS SADHGURU SAYS, MORALITY SOUNDS MANDATORY IN THE ABSENCE OF HUMANITY. BUT TRUTHFULLY, THERE'S NO SUBSTITUTE FOR HUMANITY. With Sadhguru's Grace, may every baby blossom wholly and enjoy life as A HUMAN. Shambho! Shambhavi!

I have hit comments on many posts as to how my Grandpa's advice have enhanced my life many times and given me so... much peace. I have also talked about other beautiful lives that have touched me deep, impacting myself much. So, now it should be clear that the "advice" above is not what I was gifted. It's about those words of mine that I recently felt had no reception.

I have mostly been successful in seeing a dear one across a tough situation through my so called "advice." This is no bragging. One of them told me that she found a sister in me. That friend was facing a situation that I too had experienced myself. I made it through the mess, but had some harsh lessons at the end. I passed them on and they had had a wonderful effect on her way out. And, she was happy to have had me then. My advice to others (especially the young) starts off as... "Yeah, I too was like you at that age." Then, I narrate my saga, my take on it and all that followed; to finally convey "the moral of the story." This has worked utmost times, as I gain the listener's interest by absolute empathy. Without empathy, an advice could sound like a preaching - valuable, yet unlikable in most contexts. With empathy in its place, AN ADVICE BECOMES A NOTEWORTHY GUIDANCE.

I was recently advising my sis on how she could blow away her blues. I was suggesting her the way out. But she won't listen. SHE IS CERTAINLY MORE MATURE TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD THAT I LOOK FORWARD TO LEARNING SO... MUCH FROM HER. But, at times, she feels down and I think I can support her. What she looks like having taken lightly isn't true. That bothers me and I come up with my experience of life to let her get things right. But, it isn't working. I was wondering if I had gotten into preaching without understanding her problem(s). I recalled how others had influenced me to move mountains. I was asking myself what I was missing out. I kept looking for the answer. THEN, I REALIZED... People whose advice mattered and worked for me were sure of resolving my matters by their words. They gave me the solution, without a drop of doubt if I was hearing or not. The fact hit straight at my sixth sense and I would know joy soon. I too had worked this method out to that friend I was talking of a little earlier. But, with my young sis, I was always worried if she would in the first place hear me or not. That had had me raise my voice unnecessarily and also had me often question her if she was listening in or not. These things would have agitated her more than showing her any direction. Once I got this truth, I tell my sis what I would love to share and move away. I wish she finds clarity soon then. Otherwise, knowingly or unknowingly, my sense of doubt would flare up and I may only add to the mess. SADHGURU SAYS THERE'S NO NEED FOR ANY ADVICE FOR THE ONE THAT'S DEEPLY ROOTED IN AWARENESS. Some times, with some people, it's difficult to get them get a taste of it. AT SUCH TIMES, ADVICE DOES WORK; BUT THAT NEEDS TO BE OUT OF EMPATHY AND DEVOID OF ANY DOUBT OF RECEPTION.
