Every parent loves their children and wants the best for them, but the birth of their child triggers the birth trauma of the parents themselves, particularly the mother. The post-partum depression is all this unhealed stuff coming up inside of ourselves. It helps the child hugely if we can heal our birth trauma.
"We are not given a good life or bad life. We are given a life. It's up to us to make it good or bad." - Ward Foley
We spend the maximum hours in a day at our workplaces. It’s a fact well-known to all of us. The work that we do makes us feel confident, independent, and most importantly gives us a sense of achievement. Not to forget, it also gets the bread and butter in the house. Things go awry when fear creeps in. As human beings, we all have certain fears, and when we come face to face with those fears, we don’t behave or function normally.
We all play fall backs to other people in our lives, especially as a spouse, parent, child, sibling friend, relative or colleague. Let us be mindful of our energies and emotions so that when someone comes to us at their weaker times, we are able to empathise with them, yet stay in a neutral state and reflect their true essence just as a true mirror would do. Realise the role of your sangha, your companions, your friends and family and how they can influence the direction of your journey of life in a profound way. Choose your fall backs wisely and be an empathetic yet honest fall back for someone else.
We all crave for power at some point in our lives to change or make things better. Little do we know that this power actually lies within us. Over the years, due to the repeated conditioning being passed on from generations, we are in a situation today where we feel helpless. We all have somewhere accepted the fact that our mind is the decision maker for us. When there are downs, we start doubting our stars, destiny or luck. If it is our life, our mind, and our body, then are we not responsible for running our own show?
Violence is frightening. Violence is ugly. Violence is a cruel expression of power. And of all the forms of violence that we come in contact with, there is no denying the violence that the human mind is subjected to. Since our formative years in life, our childhoods have been about a persistent air of social conditioning which slowly acted as an agent of asphyxiation. This conditioning literally penetrates through your bloodstreams until finding a way into our cells. Growing up in a world which teaches you the ideas of racing against both time and people, the understanding of the joy of togetherness has scarcely been imparted for most of us. Comparison and Competition was the eternal theme during our school lives, and that is the tragedy of most of our generations.
