Back to talking about challenged children. It’s really tough for mothers who have challenged children. Really tough.
They have to take care of their children much more than ordinary children. Her question is “Will my child get better?” I have a different point of view about it.
Human beings are wonderful lifeforms who have been human beings many times. This lifeform chose a disabled body and a mother who wants to raise such a child, then was conceived and born into a family. So, they are having a wonderful existence The mother doesn’t run away from the situation.. Rather she behaves like her child was born with a disabled body to experience wonderful things now for her family and people all over the world!
The she acts to show her appreciation. Let’s look ahead. The child whom has disabled body now and wants to grow up with that body, has already had wonderful experiences many times in previous lives. So, he will find his own life with his disabled body while he is living. And the mother sees him. She may say that my son is always wonderful and leading lots of people still now. Or, he is helping lots of people now. As he needs lots of help, it’s really hard for his mother to take care of him in many ways. But now he is helping now lots of people. This is the way. I call it looking ahead, or tuning. She is tuning.
She is tuning to look ahead. I said earlier, we are life and live our consciousness. In my words, it is a lively working together of wisdom and tenderness which creates upcoming experiences. So, as I’ve said lots of times, each of us is a path of “working.” Even if a disabled child is born, it’d be joyful to experience hardships in reality. To live with him or look ahead to his future. Looking to his future for him is a way of tuning. Look far away.
Look ahead. I say this in several ways. So, we need to have such a feeling, such eyes called sea otter’s eyes to our children. And when we always see our children, we might want to approach them not like “don’t do this, don’t do that, must do this, must do that” but “Let’s do this, let’s do this, let’s do this.” "we had lots of fun times." "Let's do more!" There is a good way.
