Life lessons from Children
Beautiful Greetings Moms,
“Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.” Khalil Gibran
I read “The Prophet” by Khalil Gibran when I was a mere 16 year old and I have been profoundly touched by this poem in a deeply inspiring way. As a child when I read this, it made sense to me because I lost my mother when I was five, so belonging to life itself made perfect sense to me.
Through the years, this poem has significantly evolved in my mind and reached the core of my soul.
So for mothers in all stages of their lives – new mothers, mothers who are having teenagers, mothers who are empty nesting…. please take a moment to breath and know that your children are perfect in their path and their wisdom of the world. They come with a spiritual knowledge of the path and we are here to walk with them, learn with them, guide them, be with them and love them.
Here are some easy ways to walk with your children in guidance.
Relax with the knowledge that the infinite organizing power of the Universe is at play and all you need to do is step into the “trust”, and flow with secure awareness from your heart.
If you believe in God, then know that your children are in his/her hands. Imagine placing your children in the divine hand of God and letting him/her do the work. If you let Ego do the work of God/Spirit then it might not deliver the results that Life longs for. How freeing it is to know that you have now placed your children in the fertile soil of all creation, infinite possibilities and unconditional love.
When you come to a deep knowing in your heart that all of us are here for a purpose and in a journey, with our quota of life lessons (yes even our children) then hopefully your perspective of your burdens will be lightened and you step into your own “divine” nature, belonging to life itself.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to ask me or comment. I will be glad to hopefully show the insight within you.
With all my love and thank you for fulfilling life’s longing for itself.
You are beautiful.
