of the authentic, soul-based, inner-grounded life is
slow and unworried.
In it we step outside of time,
outside of the panicked cravings
and to win,
and outside of the desire
ourselves and others.
Here there is time for real learning.
Here we can
trust our children
to grow and to learn at their own pace.
Here we can refuse “the world” and
attend to our souls.
Here we can let go of
mode of parenting
that demands we sacrifice our children’s present
for some vaguely threatening future
they and we will come up short.
our minds find
fertile ground for new growth.
