Eventually the view panned out to reveal a dining room table with a couple to my right that were completely overwhelmed with the children. They looked at me with longing eyes for an answer and had the look of utter helplessness on them.
I began to talk to the children who quickly calmed down and started to listen with interest as I told them a story.
But the fire can also be good. You can let God's love fill you and the fire becomes a love for others instead of yourself. You can let that fire burn in you as compassion and a desire to help others. This will give you peace and rest and happiness and contentment. The more this flame burns the better your life and others gets. Heaven comes into your heart and joy fills your every thought and the flame brings you closer to God, the spirit of fire, that will drive you to the ecstasy of love. A fountain of life will spring up in your heart and feed you and comfort you and lead you to do righteousness and kindness and grace.
Your parents are trying to train you to not focus on yourself. They are trying to guide you away from selfishness and into self-control. You must chose and which way you go will determine your fate in life and death. All is not lost if you will listen to your parents and control yourself and comply with their rules and requests. Save yourselves while you still can.
