NEW DEFINITION OF CARE:
To care for my son and daughter is to see them live and exist here, to witness their life and celebrate it with them. To care for them is to share myself with them and really hear them when they share with me. To care is to respect my children as life, they are in fact not MY children but beings here on earth as adults now, who came through me. To care is to live as example of someone they can trust, as they see me living in self-awareness and caring not only for family but the entire world as my/our family.
To care is to be there whenever they wish to talk (if at all possible), and to not react to anything they share but to assist and support them to my utmost potential. To care is to sometimes ask them about their lives, if/when I see a potential problem where I could assist in some way, and if they say they do not want t discuss something, then I back off without holding any judgement but letting them know I am here if/when they need me in some future moment.
Finally, to care is to let go of any perceived control I hold within me, where I replace life/living as being present with my awareness with emotions/feelings/thinking patterns and imaginations about my children, within a desire to ‘keep them safe’ as it does not keep them safe in reality, they are human and as such, within the cycles of birth and death that we currently exist as, they will leave this earth, as I will, someday.
