Ten important lessons about motherhood

This week while checking on my 9 y.o. son’s school bag, I discovered an English assignment which he did on “I love you forever”, he wrote this:- Dear mum, I will love you in the entire space, not even if you scold me, I still love you. Next time, I will always follow you and you are my best mum I ever had. I feel so lucky when my mum cooks yummy food for me. Love, Kai This was such an affirmation for the decision I made 3 years ago to quit my corporate life and to spend more time with Kai. The fulfillment within is really sweet.

Like many modern women, I was deeply torn between my career and my desire to be there for my child several years ago. As current day parents, we are often tied up with so many environmental and societal pressures of being attached to work and money in the materialistic pursuits. For the first 6 years of my son’s life, I was a working mum doing a regional job but I was lucky enough to be supported by a trusted domestic caretaker who really took great care of my son. However, we all know that we can’t possibly sub-contract a mother’s responsibilities to an outsider because fundamentally, parents are the first role model of a child and we have the responsibility in giving them the foundation of possibilities.

When a woman feels this crack in her inner space, she naturally carries the heaviness of guilt inside her heart which makes it impossible for her to have fulfilment in her life. If this crack is not addressed, a woman could fall into anxiety and depression. Having struggled through this major cross-road myself, I am glad that I always find the right guidance through spiritual solutions. After all, we are relating with another intelligent spiritual being.

In this article, I would like to share with all mothers as well as women who work with children, the 10 golden lessons that I learnt from my own journey of motherhood. Of course, motherhood is a life-long process, so I can only share whatever I imbibed at this moment. Please only take whatever resonates with you.

Evolving a new species of mankind

Do you know that like plants, our human body has the capability to produce food and energy from the sun rays, prana and ether?

Unfortunately, as a human race, we’ve forgotten this intelligent bio-memory within this human body after many lives of consuming food as the main source of energy. From the ancient yogic scripture – Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, it states that the human body is a miniature of the Cosmos. By the nature of our intelligence, our body can directly produce whatever it wants from the pancha bhootas (5 elements) – the space or ether, the air, the sun rays (the fire representation), from the water, from walking on the ground (earth). Our body can just imbibe directly from these 5 elements. The truth is we don’t need so much food to sustain us. We need only a little support from whatever grows in the earth like grains and vegetables. I feel that it is time human beings reclaim this natural intelligence in us and liberate ourselves from the attachment for food. This will solve many of the food related mental patterns, disorders and the exploitation by large corporations and political parties on planet earth.
