We worked on tolerance and compassion last week. By being mindful of our conversations, actions and thoughts whilst coupling this with the compassion kriya posted on Sanasuma Facebook page. Let’s focus on more healing this week before we end classes for 2017 with thinking about the legacy we would like to focus on in 2018.
The extraordinary role of the mother our first teacher is responsible for a child developing her authentic identity and embracing her divine feminine. Ideally the mother or Guru Mata provides a new-born child with security and love. She is the primary foundation and first influence of that child. The intimate and authentic relationships, the Mother has, sets the blue print of trust in the child.
When a child’s basic need for security and love is not fulfilled the child reacts, developing fear and lashing out in anger. When our first teachers (mother and father) do not have a strong foundation in their own divine identity, we form these same distorted beliefs about the world around us. Gradually innocence is lost. The child learns to manipulate and manoeuvre in an effort to control her life. As she becomes older she becomes conservative, extreme, longing for predictability and control over life. As a result we lose our grace, neutrality, intuition and sensitivity.
Do you feel you are holding on to childhood anger? Take a few breaths, close your eyes and see if an answer comes to you?
True our soul chose our first teachers, our parents; we choose this experience to have in this lifetime. But our solution is not wanting different parents or a difference childhood. Our salvation is to embrace our stories up to now, take personal responsibility for our own lives, our actions and reactions. Then we can free ourselves from these stories, patterns and blueprints through awareness, forgiveness and steady, continual practice of authenticity. This will eventually give you GRACE.
