Hello and welcome!
Parenting offers the chance to rewrite history. It gives you the chance to choose which aspect of your childhood you want to model for your children and which aspect you want to change.
Be –ing the change you wish to see in the world requires an understanding of what interferes with your own joy and what limits your consciousness.
As you practice this you will discover that you are drawn to connecting and solving problems devoid of hate and anger, proof and defensiveness.
This can be applied to every aspect of your life including from how you consume, to how your model relationships and partnerships, to how you parent.
The inner and outward congruence of joy, forgiveness, compassion, and real interest or curiosity in the other leads to real power to change not only your world and sphere of influence but the world.
Happiness is a state of mind – it reflects your inner capacity to be the best you can be.
I am grateful at this time in my life to see this gentle, mindful, compassionate, strength, and sense of empowerment in both my son and my daughter. I feel joy in my own release from the prison of proof and defensiveness that separates humans, and gratefulness in the path chosen by my children.
Look into your children’s eyes see that joy and empowerment. This is how you can change the world, by modeling your commitment to practice mindfulness and compassion in your interactions and parenting.
Just as water through its persevering flow along a crevice can create a canyon, so too can you transform your environment through this gentle, persevering pressure of mindfulness, compassion and non-violence.
First you must see it in your mind’s eye then you can create it and see it reflected all around you.
To increase your capacity for mindfulness, compassion, forgiveness, and non-violence practice Yoga, prayer, meditation, internal paradigm shifting, listening to understand before speaking to prove, through these practices, in time, your will shift your perspective and through this your words and actions. Namaste, in love and light, beth
