Do not desist

“It is not your responsibility to finish the work [of perfecting the world], but you are not free to desist from it either.” Master Tarphon ~1st-2nd century CE

This is a follow up to the previous post.

Raising children to be conscious useful untraumatized adults can feel like a gargantuan, even impossible task. And maybe it is. When we consider our cultural climate, our generational stories and our own healing journeys amongst other factors it is easy to get overwhelmed and to feel like we’ve failed before we’ve even begun.

I have a tendency towards melancholy which I can generally keep well hidden. In front of the high ideals and bold dreams that I hold, I often feel minuscule and powerless. It has been some of my biggest inner work to overcome this tendency and to learn to just. Keep. Going. Step. By. Step. Day. By. Day.

I see you all, doing the same. Many of us learned as children that there was an ideal that was achievable. A fabricated perfection we could attain. Our education’s intention, for the most part, was to make us know certain things and express them in a certain way so that we could support a specific set of systems. Cogs. Robots. They said they wanted leaders but they didn’t know how to nourish them. Some children saw through this and never bothered to play the game. They saved themselves in a sense. Those of us high academic achievers for a hard hit of reality when they got out in the real world 👋.

Robots and ai will soon be able to replace many of these roles and thank God! So where does that leave humans? I think it will bring us back to our humanity, back to our creativity and force us to grow our consciousness. Our idea of education, then needs a drastic overhaul.

Stay the course mothers and fathers. Raising children is an art. It’s a creative process between us, them and the Divine. There is no perfection to attain. Only curiosity for the end result 15, 20, 30 years down the road.

Stay the course. If you get overwhelmed (as I often do) send me a DM and I’ll be your cheerleader 📣 🎉
