BLESSED PURITY AND INNOCENCE THAT BABIES MAKE US REMEMBER
was with Sunlight in the sunlight
Today the new member of Ayahuasca International family is one month old.
The last day of January 2016 Eric and Michela’s daughter was born; father and mother in their twenties, a Colombian man and an Italian girl (Chinese mother) who are responsible for the Inner Mastery house in Italy and facilitators of Ayahuasca International.
I went to visit this wonderful girl, give her lots of kisses and take a nap with her. It was a magical experience feeling her energy while resting in the sun on a Colombian hammock.
In our international team there are many couples and families, most of them are, and there are more and more children, 2 more facilitators are pregnant, and we are very happy that families grow, nurture each other with love, and support.
Although ours is not a blood family, we live as if it were so, in the spiritual, emotional and energetic sense, but we also feel more affinity, closeness and affection for all the members in our blood family.
Although many times, when we work with the
traumas from childhood that we all have, I insist on the need to break up with parents, not to allow them to control us anymore, to break free from parental dependency or dare to be ourselves despite our parents’ resistance, in practice we see that these attitudes of empowerment, apparently anti-family because they put distance between our parents and us, are creating inside us a much deeper emotional bond, manifested sooner or later in greater closeness and family understanding.
Together we are discovering this wonderful truth, that the more we support freedom and autonomy of those who we love, the closer we get to them from the heart and the more we love each other from the respect of what each of us is.
For all children born in the world, we parents should focus on giving them love, on respecting their freedom, and on showing them an authority without charge, which marks a direction, but it never subjugates or manipulates.
In the end, human problems come from a fictitious, inadequate or absent mother’s love, and from a weak, authoritarian or cold idea of the father.
I publicly invite all parents, represented by these young couple Eric and Michela, to never forget that children are themselves, that they have the right to choose a religion, sexuality, profession, job and way of life they want to. We can only be loving guides and conscious parents in the work of supporting the freedom they bring and of supporting the love they already have.
Because in this way we will be creating a new type of family, ready to be happy and enjoy itself.
As Darwin Grajales’ song quite rightly says:
“A FAMILY OF LIGHT SHINING IN DARKNESS”
WE WILL SOON CARRY OUT PARENTS WORKSHOPS; FREE AS A CONTRIBUTION TO A SOCIETY THAT CRIES FOR AN EDUCATIONAL MODEL CHANGE.
