With the pace of world events, the prevalence of the victim consciousness, and the future the Shariyat, Book One, describes at the end of chapter 3, is it responsible to bring children into the world?

–Pam, USA

Dear Pam,

People blessed to be born into this world have the good fortune to resolve many of their spiritual conflicts.

As to the question of whether to bring a child into this world: Do you have the financial means as well as a strong desire to have a child? Contemplate well upon this, for two lives are on the line.

Still, love makes all things possible.
