The Invitation

Flower PowerIt doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.

I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

FlowerDon’t buy the story that people have to stay together “for the kids”. Kids are fine when the parents don’t fill them with fear and foreboding and judgments. Children are infinitely adaptable and want to be happy, and will be if allowed to. They still have the capacity to feel emotion and let it move quickly — until you teach them that suffering is required. Children do not suffer over your divorce unless you teach them they should!

What does it teach your kids when you stay in a situation that is not a match for you anymore, especially if you are negative about it? That you should lie to yourself, them, and each other? That your happiness is dependent on someone else? That change and evolution are bad? That following your inner guidance is OK as long as everyone else approves it? That feeling as good as you possibly can is unimportant?

That’s how kids’ Instrument Panels (Emotions, Mind and Heart) get scrambled! They learn from adults that good feels bad and bad feels good. Then they grow up not being able to tell which way is up. Be real with kids. They cannot be fooled, unless you’ve already thoroughly scrambled them.

If you don’t choose things that feel right to you, they may not ever be able to do it either, unless, God Bless Them, they rebel and decide to do it different than you did. ~ Lola Jones from Divine Opening ~
