Parenting Meditation for the Week

From Everyday Blessings by Myla & Jon Kabat-Zinn

In any moment, we can choose to set aside the armor that has protected us, and ally ourselves with our children, giving them the gift of a more open, compassionate, and understanding parent. In the process, we get a taste if the way it might have been in our own childhood, and more importantly, we get to share the intrinsic freedom and connectedness of this moment not only with our child but with ourself. in choosing to break out of a negative cycle, the magic of a love that is unconditional touches us all. Each time we are able to do this, we take another step toward wholeness and our own liberation.


xoxo,
