On Parenting, On Prayer
8/2/2009 8:59:44 AM
Once you’re a parent, life becomes less about you and your beliefs and more about providing opportunities for your child to experience, learn, establish preferences and draw their own conclusions. In the meantime, you sometimes find yourself withstanding even that which feels like sandpaper to your soul. Yet, the abrasion builds tolerance and tolerance builds patience and patience is good. Sometimes it’s hard to hold in remarks and opinions that are more an outlet for your lesser self than loving guidance for your child. Sometimes it’s hard to resist the urge to mold your child into your clone. Thankfully, the spunk-imbued authenticity inherent to youth is resilient. So, on those occasions that I fail to rise above myself, I trust in that resilience and pray that I do better next time.
My life is a prayer unfolding. I am an expression of Omni-intention. As much as I can, I live outside my skin that I might know the unity of All-That-Is. I follow the feeling and live in the realms of inspired action that I might, one day, be a prayer fulfilled.
