Having Compassion

In every moment life presents you with a choice – either move to compassion or close down from fear and anxiety. To take the opportunity and face your fears or remain imprisoned by them. The choice is yours. If for example, if you think you’re not worthy or inadequate, you won’t respond harmoniously to the situations that life presents. You won’t take risks. You’ll avoid healthy relationships or attach to other people in unhealthy ways.

Being Angry

Do you get upset easily? Do other people set you off? Do you get angry, explosively so, at your partner? Worse yet, are you unremittingly harsh on yourself? What about other drivers? Or, conversely, are you withdrawn and totally timid? Do you live in abject fear of being hurt if you speak your mind?

Judgment

Humans tend to segregate things into good and bad. We all make and hold judgments. We have issues with former lovers, business partners, co-workers, neighbors, former friends, parents, siblings, etc. We focus on the other people, but judgment is not about them at all.

Every Loving Thought

“Every loving thought is true. Everything else is an appeal for healing and help, regardless of the form it takes.” Helen Shucman Sometimes a thought catches you and causes you to change the way you see things. That happened to me with Helen’s quote. It took me back to something Gay Hendricks teaches, “The only thing any situation needs is more love.”

Parenting

When conducting a workshop, if there is one topic guaranteed to snap a room to attention, it is the issue of parenting. No one, it seems is comfortable with their ability to parent and everyone feels pretty vulnerable about it. It is a shame that we don’t teach parenting in schools because you’re certain to need it more than algebra or chemistry.

Parents and Children

We assume that a child comes into the world with a clean slate. That’s both true and not. In a child’s conscious awareness, everything is new. His or her immediate circle is a world of wonder, newness and exploration. There is little conscious awareness of anything outside his or her world. But at another level, The Universe is busy creating exactly the experiences the child will need to further the development of his or her unfinished awareness. We can debate as to whether this is actually a part of the child’s unconscious, but it really doesn’t matter because either way, it’s going to profoundly effect the child’s life.
