“If our families are built upon high standards, principles, and ideals, then our nation — which is an accumulation of families — will have high standards, principles, and ideals.
“Every problem in the world is an exaggeration of family problems. Because we do not have ideal families, we do not have ideal nations. And because our family units are in trouble, so are nations. Nations reflect the families contained in their borders.” p. 523
In this book, Torkom addresses the foundation of family life and the interrelations within the family that contribute to the growth and expansion of human life. He covers the major topics of the creative power of sex, the mother, the father, the children, and the family as a whole. Creating a family is presented as a sacred trust. As disciples, we see family building, family relations in an esoteric light. We understand how the growth of the soul needs commitment, endurance, love, and patience so that it is hammered out through our family relations. Your presence as a mother, a father, child, family member of any sort, can be healing for everyone. What happens to one generation affects future generations of families and the society at large. When parents are conscious and able to be on the path of wholeness, their family is healed from many wounds and all family members are able to move to new areas of expansion and growth. Now is the time to make a change in our consciousness and actively seek the actualization of the divine inheritance of each human being. A day will come when we see that even the Higher Worldly kingdoms all form part of our family relations.
“The disciple and aspirant upon the Path, and the Initiate upon his “Lighted Way,” have no better training ground therefore than the marriage relation, rightly used and rightly understood. The bringing of the animal nature under rhythmic discipline, the elevation of the emotional and the instinctual natures upon the altar of sacrifice, and the self-abnegation required in the life of the family are tremendous purificatory and developing potencies.”
Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Psychology, Vol. 1, p. 306.
“Reading Family – Foundation of Society, is healing for older people. It helps us understand our parents, heals our childhood, and supports our children and grandchildren. This book addresses all aspects of life and society, mothers, fathers, and children, with a tender and understanding approach. The ideals and principles are so practical that no matter our stage in life, you will find a story, a chapter, or an ideal to expand your mind and heal your heart.”

The differences between men and women are part of the design of nature. These differences empower women rather than detract from them. Women are not made to be like men or to compete with men. Women are the torchbearers of society. Find out how.
Our ideas must turn into ideals to help the evolution of humanity proceed. An ideal is the vehicle of a divine idea to meet the needs of individuals, groups, and nations, creating polarization within us toward greater and more inclusive values. Ideals are formed of mental matter, and often as thoughtforms. TS-Ch 20.
