When we understand that we come into life bringing eternity with us, all we've ever gone through and the behaviors we learned over lifetimes, we can then realize that the way our children turn out is not fully our responsibility. And, the way we turned out is not the responsibility of our parents. If we did our best in raising our children, then the guild in being a 'bad parent' can be dropped.
To believe that all behavior began at this current birth and was learned throughout this current lifetime is a quagmire from which it's impossible to extricate oneself.
Wisdom comes from digging deeper to find one's true essence and origin. Get out your shovel and don't stop until you reach the truth.
Tell me what it means to you to be a good parent. What are your responsibilities as a parent? What are your responsibilities as a son or daughter? Leave your comment below. I'd love to read your perspective.
