Firstly,Why do we want our children to be perfect? Is your child perfect? Uh, no. But i do wish things will be perfect for her. Even then what is this obsession with perfection? What is with the transference of personal arrogance to this simple and pure Soul?
Secondly, being a parent or teacher doesn't excuse us from personal growth. As much as your child is dependant on you, you too are dependant on your child, for guidance, for self-reformation, for spiritual growth.
And lastly, how can you not believe in God, after holding a child in your hand. The love that you feel - that raw emotion - can't be human. Equally, how can you not feel the same emotion for all those who are weak and needy in the world...

We need to lift the veils of arrogance to see the true colors of our world, our children, and our personal realities.


Now that I’m about to become a parent, a mother, I seldom think about how I will raise this child. What values do I want her to acquire and how will i go about helping her attain them?

I thought to myself let me start at the beginning. I started this blog to take snaps of myself, and to collect random stuff I find exciting. I’ve started writing personal narratives from my childhood so I can give them to my child(ren) someday. Among them are some of my earliest memories, my most exciting moments, and things that have changed me in someway.

So far I’ve found ways to introduce myself to this new person but how do i find ways to remind this person of her origin? She took her earthly form in my womb and thus has become my responsibility, but what about her soul? What does it seek? How do I remind her that her life didn’t begin here and that home is not really home? (I realize I sound crazy and no im not part of some Astro-Cult).
