For many of us on the spiritual path the story of our family define’s a large part of our own selves. Despite all the differences and pains that goes along with growing up with these people regardless of whether they pained or loved you the truth remains that your “family” is in your life forever. This could range in the spectrum of complete abandonment to being completely present in your life.
The bringing into awareness that there is a very sophisticated divine order in who your family is and the opportunity given to you by each member in your family. This opportunity is of course the choice between being unconscious or being awake, between holding on or forgiveness, between fear or embracing all imperfections as divinity herself.
As we age and grow wiser we can begin to see that everyone is doing their very best to get through their own karma that was chosen for this lifetime. With that in mind, why not make it easier for everyone including yourself to move towards a place of compassion and kindness. Every relationship within your family has to heal in its own time with hopefully the goal of extending love to each other as the end result. The extension of this love to your family can have many expressions, but all expressions lean towards support, love and community.
I invoke consciousness to support family structure and to place it as one of the highest priorities in society’s fabric.
