Thought of the Moment

Engaged Presence

While you may believe your most important challenge is to raise your children well, there’s an even more essential task you need to attend to, which is the foundation of effective parenting. This task is to raise yourself into the most awakened and present individual you can be. The reason this is central to good parenting is that children don’t need our ideas and expectations, or our dominance and control, only for us to be attuned to them with our engaged presence.

Your tiredness, sickness, and inability to look after yourself does not support or help anyone. Your loved ones don't want to be the cause of your unhappiness or exhaustion. They want to be the cause of your joy and wellness. Read more

Leave It All In The World

Your days are numbered. Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun.  If you do not, the sun will soon set, and you with it.
