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 really 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 being having a spiritual experience but rather we are spiritual being having a human experience." And it's really made such an impact on me because coming from the spiritual world backgrounds and kind of teaching spirituality to people, I always felt that we need to learn  how to be spiritual but it's such a 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 when 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 being challenged. So when I can accept my kids and having in a way that I actually I 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 uh misbehaving on the this crazy emotions and everything that comes with being human. So the process of accepting is actually it's more than  accepting is actually learning to have compassion to the human experience, to my kids as human being or 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 they will get 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 you know 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 happened, i'll be okay. Just bring it on. And solve everybody 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.
