Quite often, when a potential client calls me to make an appointment for a coaching session, they ask: “How do I know that this is going to work? How do I know that this is the right thing for me?” The bottom line is that you don’t know, and you won’t know until you begin to engage personally and directly with the practice of consciously evolving yourself as a person and as a parent.
What does it require to evolve consciously?
Evolving consciously requires a degree of discipline, presence, and mindfulness to your thinking, to the thoughts you think, and to the outcome you are really wanting for yourself, and, in this case, for your children and grandchildren.
One of the intentions of the book, the video blogs series, and these blogs regarding, Parent Like a Guru, is to keep the level of commitment pretty low. It is a matter of thinking about something, or doing something infinitely small every day or so; so, if you find that this isn’t the right path you won’t have invested much. And, if you find that some of it resonates, and you want to actually practice some of what is suggested to a greater degree, then that would just be in alignment with what you want. Incrementally, you will explore and discover your unique way of approaching parenting as a spiritual practice.
