Learning by Eve WilsonRev Eve Wilson Oct 2012

Outside my second story window is the beginnings of a robins nest. The young pair of robins are busy carrying last year’s dry lily leaves and other carefully chosen items to the crook of my tiny maple tree. With each new addition the mother- to- be lays her belly down and snuggles the nesting material into the shape of a nest, turns a bit and does the same again in each direction. The young parents seem very happy with this spot directly above my bird bath and feeder. The problem they seem to be missing is the large amount of traffic to this area for those same accoutrements by other birds. I am particularly concerned about the starlings who I am confident would find robin eggs a treat.

Watching these blindly confident young parents I was reminded of the way that each of us has to learn from our experiences. I thought about how God allows us to do that, confident that next time the opportunity arises we will be wiser in our choices and learn some deep lessons along the way. I am certain that the next brood these robins have will be placed in a safer spot.

This made me think of a new mother I recently met. She was so greatly overwhelmed by the need to be perfect for her child and everyone else that she couldn’t conceive of a few minutes a day to just relax and care for her own emotional needs. I have observed this tendency a lot in recent generations of parents who want so badly to be better parents than the previous generations or as good as those they had. Popular psychology has placed the blame for the problems of individuals on their parents. Sometimes that is the case, but mostly it is the children’s own soul contracts which define their experience of life. Parents may blame their selves or try too hard feeling that their child’s success is all about their parenting. Carried to an extreme these attitudes encourage parents to neglect their own needs which can create an imbalance of another sort.

Like the robin, children have to learn from their experiences. They need to think for their selves, choose and make mistakes for their selves. Failing, they will of necessity learn to go within and find the motivation and will power to succeed for their selves. No one can do these things them. If we allow others to drive our lives we never learn to drive them for ourselves. Truly, it is easier to control or push our children then to watch them struggle to find their own motivation, will power and courage, and it takes a greater amount of trust. It is less frustrating to do for our children than to wait for them to do for their selves, or to sit by while they leave things undone. But if we do everything for them, we become slaves to our children. Parents teach by example and the stress of trying to hyper-parent, teaches a fearful, overwhelmed, and imbalanced way of life. It may make them not want to grow up to live that level of hyper-responsibility they see in their parents.

To model life for your children, learn to live a life that your children will long to experience for their selves. This is an endeavor that will reward everyone!

Let your children observe your learning process and how you problem solve. Let them see you take time for yourself and enjoy relaxing and being alive and whole. This will help them learn to solve their own problems, relax into their own life, find joy and wholeness. They will need unstructured time to choose their direction and find their motivation; time to make poor decisions and learn for their selves what they really want and what will work for them. The greatest level of vigilance will not prevent circumstances which are pre-determined to occur for your child. They have a destiny which is not in your control.

Like the robin, children will learn from their experience and will succeed because they have tried and failed and are encouraged to see that as OK. Failure is a step toward success and a necessary part of learning. God knows this and has allowed a couple of generations to try hyper-parenting in an attempt to create happy and whole people. If you have gone to this extreme, it is OK to change your approach and find more balance. There is no time like the present and no blame for trying to the best of your ability, and then choosing a different, more balanced approach.

One of my favorite meditations is to see life as God’s river. I surrender into the flow of life and release all the hard things (metaphorically the rocks in the river that create turbulence and rapids) to God. When traveling down a river, there is always a current that flows deep through the rocky places and will carry you safely through, but if you try to grab hold of the rocks you will get beat up by them. Trust the flow of life’s river and surrender the rocks, or the hard things to God. When you do, you’ll find there is a way through the hard and dangerous places that is safe and amazingly smooth.

As you wake up in the morning and step out of bed, step into God’s river and release all your objectives and agendas into God’s care. Ask God to help you find a way to accomplish with grace, power and ease all that is important today and to let go and trust that whatever doesn’t get done is really not important at this time.

Spend your day in the flow of God’s river. The world is changing so fast right now. If you try to control things you will feel frustrated and stressed out. You can trust God’s river to take you to the perfect place for you.

A Spiritual Tool: Sending LoveBy Min. Maryellen De VineMin Maryellen DeVine

When we’re on a spiritual path, we want to think that we are only about Love and Light (right?) And we probably are for the most part. However, we all have times when we feel our “human-ness”. We face challenging situations, have arguments, lose our cool with our kids, or just have a plain old bad day. This is just part of the “spiritual beings having a human experience” thing.

But we have a powerful spiritual tool available to us at all times to help smooth out these tricky times. And it’s so simple, yet not always easy to remember.

We can just Send Love.

Perhaps you and a loved one aren’t seeing eye to eye lately. Perhaps you’re dealing with a difficult boss or client. Perhaps you’ve been worrying about the outcome of a particular situation (especially when you feel you have no control over the outcome). Or maybe you are beginning to put up some healthy boundaries for yourself, and others are having a hard time adjusting to them.

You can just send Love. Imagine Love swirling in your heart space and then imagine it flowing out to the other person. You can picture Love surrounding and infusing the situation or the relationship.

Sometimes we are too angry at the moment to muster up any actual feelings of Love, but you can always call upon the energy of Unconditional Love or ask your angels to flood each of you with Love. You’ll be amazed at the shift this simple thing can create. It may help you or the other person be more compassionate and understanding. It may soften the intense emotions. It may also help those involved see that the other’s behavior is coming from stress or fear, etc. It can be very healing.

It’s actually a great practice to do each day. Send Love to your loved ones, those you work with, people driving on the freeway, to different situations, places at war…you name it!

I have to remind myself of this tool at times, too. Just imagine this at my house (hopefully you’ll get a chuckle out of this):
3 teenage boys (attitudes!)
+ 1 menopausal mom (yikes, that’s me!)
= 1 volatile cocktail!

Definitely looking rather human instead of “angelic” and spiritual at times 🙂 Gotta keep on sending (and receiving) the Love!

Sending lots of Love to you!

UCM Book of the Month

 

Illustrated World Religions, Rev Angela DeBry 2008

By Huston Smith

In the early 90’s, when I began to teach my credential program our then president, Reverend Lavona Stillman, recommended The World Religions, by Huston Smith. At that time I found his work on DVD form and used those for my in house classes. When students began to ask for a remote program I was fortunate to find the illustrated version.

Huston Smith was born May 31, 1919. He is one of the most admired religious studies scholars in the U.S. His work, The World’s Religions, is a classic and has sold over two million copies.

He was born in Soochow, China, to Methodist missionaries and spent his first 17 years there. He taught at the Universities of Colorado and Denver from 1944 to 1947, moved to Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, for the next 10 years, served as professor of Philosophy at MIT from 1958 to 1973. Smith then moved to Syracuse University, where he was Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion and Distinguished Adjunct Professor of Philosophy until his retirement in 1983.

The full link to his biography is at:http://www.harpercollins.com/author/microsite/about.aspx?authorid=9210

Huston Smith’s early life straddling the lines between the Asian culture and his parents Methodist faith allowed him to develop a truly unique and diverse world view of how each of us embraces, struggles with and defines our faith.

I would highly recommend any and all the works done by Huston Smith, this particular version combining text and a visual picture journey is my personal favorite.

Thank you,
