At First Sight
When an infant is born we do everything for them of coarse they have no skills yet they know only to cry out for help but as they get a little older and start to reach out its important that we don’t help so much we let them challenge their self, you may think they are struggling to reach a toy but look closer they are wiggling, grunting, but not crying out for help. Its the parents that moves the toy closer for them taking away the challenge, no one wants to win a game because someone let them win . By doing this the child learns a new challenge and that’s to get you to do it for them .
With this being the child’s experience they may become the small child stomping their feet demanding their parents to give them what they want. This creates a faults sense of self the ego, with the ego saying “yes I need help here, how dare you not give me what I need” I can’t do this on my own” and the parent’s ego agrees, “yes I should do everything for this child, This child is my child… different from your child !”. And the ego is passed down like a bad gene.
We start to compare our parenting skills to our own parents; The ego tells us ” My parents didn’t ever help me, I had it tough, if my parents had stayed together, if my parents loved me more.”, and your ego tells you yes’,” I’m a better parent then my parents were”.
Most of us were un- taught to be present held captive by our parents ego, brain washed and given an ego of our own . and some may never get back to presence, until they are close to death. They say that most kids by age 8 have already developed the ego, and lost their awareness of the now, they no longer look at the world the same; they may start to judge, and label. They start to develop their stories; “I shouldn’t be treated like this, she is ugly, I am ugly, I need, I don’t have, I want, they don’t like me, I am this way because…. , I have a rights!… I have an illness, my parents are divorced, it’s my teachers fault, I am better then you”.
We came in this world with presents and will leave with presents.
Imagine seeing life with such presence, it’s like seeing everything for the first time but with the practical knowledge needed to function.
Being focused makes people feel alive it brings them peace, everything starts to align in their life’s It’s almost magic, we suddenly know what to do, where to go, and life starts to line up for you.
Without focus, without being conscious, we never fully become ourselves. The Bible says an eye for an eye, which means what you put out you get back, negative energy out, negative results back.
Thinking is energy , positive thinking leads to positive results, but above thinking is a place where awareness live’s a place where the false self/ ego cannot survive. This is the place where we find peace and comfort. this place is ” presence” A place we are born with the knowledge of but most have lost sight of .
