- What can you do to bring yourself into your integrity when you are in a power struggle with your child?
Integrating spiritual principles into every area of our lives includes parenting. Parenting seems to be one of those black holes in our lives where we forget to be conscious. We get swept into unconscious power dynamics, coded into our unconscious behaviors by our ancestors. We must remember, however, that putting spiritual principles into action is the gateway to experiencing not only the holy, but the holy within our children.
Parenting is the hardest job I’ve ever had in my entire life. Bar none. No one pushes our buttons better than our children. They first learn how to move us as infants — communicating through their cries — and they seem to learn new buttons every year thereafter.
However, having a child has helped me to become selfless in a way that I could not have otherwise known. To have a child is to constantly stretch our comfort zone — without which we can never truly achieve self-realization.
