Sample text

My son doesn't behave like that. ' But because you cannot say this to your stomach or to your heart, you cannot say it to your son or your daughter. The Buddha said, "There is no separate self" You and your son, you and your daughter are just a continuation of many generations of ancestors. You are part of a long stream of life. Whatever your children do continues to affect you deeply-just like when they were in your womb. Whatever you do still affects your children deeply because they can never be cut off from you.

This is true love. "Darling, I am angry at you. " Try your best to say it peacefully. There may be some sadness in your voice, that's fine. Just don't say something to punish or to blame. "Darling, I am angry. " This is the language of love, because you have vowed to support each other, as partners, or as husband and wife. Father and son, mother and daughter are also a couple, so even if the other person is your child or your parent, you must still speak out. You have the duty to tell him or her when you suffer.

The moment your son or daughter is conceived in your womb, you see yourself and the fetus as one. You may even begin to have a conversation with the baby, "Keep still my beloved one. ' You speak to him or to her with love. You become aware of what you consume, because whatever you eat and drink, the baby also eats and drinks. Your worries and your joy are the worries and joy of your baby. You and the baby are one. When you give birth to the baby and the umbilical cord is cut, this awareness of your unity may begin to fade away.
