26537247-Is the hardest, best, most come to jesusy adventure I've ever been in. If you want to know yourself, what you are and aren't made of, to see how insignificant and out of control one really is, to have the fire burn away what isn't essential, to have your heart expanded beyond what you ever imagined possible...to fall face down again and again...to meet your shortcomings with such helplessness...and then to realize that "oh shit"...I'm the adult here...and raise up...find a way to grow even bigger...again and again...to push against your edges...it's like the best truest adventure there is.

33967466-is in fact self-discovery. IMHO, one should start with himself (something I have ascertained many times) and happy mindful parents are the best education, imho. I mean, the child will copy me regardless, so if I am happy, successful, joyful, flexible and mindful, if I enjoy my life and achieve my goals – it will copy it regardless. I see lots of my grandmas’ and grandpas’ programs in myself which are so powerful it’s difficult to recognize or change. So, imho, one shouldn’t raise children much, it’s more important to help oneself be splendid. Find deep contact and harmony with my partner so that she is happy and mindful, since the child copies her as well and to a bigger extent while it is small, since they have more contact. Therefore, the kind of mother [a child has] impacts the child even more than the father. Therefore, it’s important to help the mother be mindful, joyful and full of energy. Then the child will be golden. It’s an on fleek question – I realized once more what’s important. Thanks 🙂

45357718Everything I have learned subjectively of a family is shaped by my experiences and association with the word ‘family.’ I realise that for each of us, there is no singular view of what raising a family means. If I speak from my own experience whether having been raised or raising a family, it has been very good and very bad - it is about undoing the raising of a family and about raising a family. My own family of origin has contributed to patterns in my life, some are conscious, and others remain unconscious. What I feel is important for me is to try to understand how my own family of origin has influenced me. Then, in raising a family, try to find the balance between teaching my children how to conform to my subjective view of the world based upon my own raising, as well as the societal, religious, legislative, etc constraints they will face, with help becoming the people that they are and have always been.
47907708...has literally been 'mind-blowing' - in the sense that I can't comprehend it. So many other forces at work then just you as a parent. Our vision of parenting is to expose our daughter to many different stimuli, learning what resonates with her. It's about helping her 'unwrap' herself. At the same time being protective of those first steps in our reality of time and space, and yet realizing she's in a way the next wave of evolution so we can learn from her. In fact, she already changed who we are, how we are as a family, how my wife and I hold each other.
