The Most Precious Gem in the World
Raising A Precious Gem
Raising your children is perhaps the most difficult and challenging job you will ever face.
Complex as the job may be, we do it because we are human and we have a heart that is full of love and the rewards of parenting are many. All the wonderful moments that we share with our family creates a lifetime of memories we store in our hearts that warm us all the days of our lives. We may forget most of the conversations but the love never dies, never fades.
I hope that as parents
you see your children as priceless gems.
They are inheritors of our beautiful world. Teach them with love, praise and patience for their greatest teacher is you, and their future depends on how you treat them.
The Students and the Teachers
We are students in life and we are also teachers. My children were some of my greatest teachers. It really is true that those who push our buttons are our greatest teachers! When my youngest son told me, “Mom, you were mean when you were younger,” I was shocked and saddened hearing those words. The last thing I wanted to do was to be mean to my child. I didn’t know I could have told him, “Hey, I really love you, I do, and I was only doing what I knew.” I was not raised with patience. And the environments I experienced were often fearful and unpredictable.
We can only give to others what we have. When my son told me how he had felt, I had a shift in consciousness which helped me to be more aware of the dynamics in our relationship.
Of all the treasures in the world,
there is nothing more precious and enduring
than giving someone a piece of your heart
Psychology and the Ego
I had studied psychology and was well aware of the ego and how it can destructively manage the mind. “Knowing” this and being “conscious” of the ego’s tyrannical behavior are two very different things. I studied books on self-development and childrearing to be more aware of my thoughts and how my choices were affecting my relationship with my child and others.
As humans we have an ego that yearns to create competition; to win no matter what the odds. Competition in our personal relationships often creates conflict and unhappiness in our lives. This vying to be right all the time, especially since we’re “the parent,” creates conflict and drama.
Children who do not receive nurturing and do not feel secure become miserable adults, creating one crisis after another reinforcing the ego’s lie that they are not worthy. It is from this place of unworthiness that addiction to substances and negative experiences arise. We get so used to feeling dejected and defeated that we create situations that perpetuate this lie. A lie we have been telling for so long we actually believe it. It is in the believing that it becomes “true.”
