Module 4 - Parenting And The Power of Acceptance Class 6 - Accepting Leads to Greater Compassion & Freedom "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go." — Dr. Seuss There are two gifts that come with being able to accept our children: One of them is compassion and the other one is freedom. And for compassion I really, I want to share with you a quote that I always loved that changed the way I look at human being and humanity in general. It's from a French philosopher but I heard it from Wayne Dyer, and it says that: "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but rather we are spiritual beings having a human experience." And it really made such an impact on me because coming from spiritual world backgrounds and kind of teaching spirituality to people, I always felt that we need to learn how to be spiritual, right? But, really, it's such so the other way around, because we are spiritual being, we have a soul, we are actually before we are human we are just energy and Light and divine. So the challenge is when we come down to this world, when we have to be human and kind of play the game of human that's when we are being challenged. So when I can accept my kids and in a way that I actually see the humanity I see the Light in them and their beautiful soul but I also see the humanity that they come with and the challenges that being human brings. So when I learn to see it like that, I can really have so much more compassion, so much more acceptance of the challenge of the falling, of the misbehaving on the this crazy emotions and everything that comes with being human. So the process of accepting is more than accepting is actually learning to have compassion to the human experience, to my kids as human beings who're learning how to play the game of life. And the second gift is freedom. When I truly accept my kids and trust that they have everything they need inside of them and I trust that will get to wherever they want to go and all that, there's so much less weight on my own shoulders. I'm not the one who's making it happen for them, I'm not the one who's holding them up the mountain. It's just really so much less, so much less on us. And what's beautiful about it is that usually women, especially us, we tend to think that we are strong by being able to take everything on. Just whatever happens, I'll be okay. Just bring it on. And solve everybody's problems and help everybody with whatever they need. But what I really learned throughout this journey beautiful journey is that to be truly strong is actually choose what to take on. And actually choose what not to take on. So one of those things that we can take off our shoulders is that we need to make our kids successful or I need to make my kids to be the best that they can be. And that's what the freedom is. Affirmation: I choose to have compassion for myself and my children through challenging times.
