Conversations: Directing Mind
March 16, 2018
All is as thinking makes it so! - Ashish
Grapes unripe, ripened, raisined: all changes not into nonexistence, but into not-yet existence.
Our kids grow into roles that are not-yet existence. Their opinions and views evolve. And I have noticed that thes
e conversations are not driven by a bond of blood or seed, but a community of mind. Our role is to allow our kids to have the independent thoughts softly nurtured and curated by the gentle hand of the parent, the farmer. We see their views not with our eyes - but our heart - and no less clearly.
Give them active support to reach acknowledged eminence in their own views. Help them walk through the logic of their opinions. Help them wear great learning lightly. For all views need adaptation with changed circumstances.
It is about children's 'directing mind.' It is the full sense of themselves which gives them meaning and purpose to their lives.
How is it that everyone loves themselves more than anyone else, but rates their own judgment of self below that of others? Our job as parents is to build our kids directing mind that is simple, pure, and self-created, and the belief and love for themselves.
