This one just came out of me after a typical “day in the life.”
Chop wood carry water
Prepare to burn
Have a kid
Laugh, cry, rage
Clean up poo
Today I was interviewed by Jessie May for her radio show called “Sunny Side Up”. We had a great conversation and I could go on and on. A few key things I covered:
1. What is this relationship as a path stuff?
2. A personal example of my own issues while leading a workshop
3. Forgiveness and “I’m sorry”
4. Advice for someone where one partner is on a spiritual path and the other isn’t.
5. a few thoughts on parenting as a path.

Sometimes men will “hang in there” during a fight to hear their woman out. But “hanging in there” won’t cut it for either party. Hanging in there is what we do when we are beyond our threshold. Hanging in there is what we don’t have tools, can’t truly listen, or would rather be doing something else. Hanging in there is a sign of self-betrayal and weak boundaries.

The more fragmented we are as parents, the more challenging parenting will be. Our kids continue to show us, with divine perfection, what is disowned in us. They continue to highlight our fragmentation. All of us parents struggle. All of us feel challenged. And, all of us meet our edge, often. And in the struggle is a lesson to be learned. The awakening parent respects and listens to the call of our kid’s upsetting behavior. The mother sees this as an invitation to go explore herself. The father siezes these moments to go deeper inside and transmute what is unfinished in him. By looking in the mirror, we, awakening parents, evolve our lineage and change the game for our children forever.
