Two| Take It Easy

Apple1

I am practicing a more balanced and slow-down life with the mindset of “take it easy”:  Motherhood – don’t worry too much about the kids.

Mom is the life and soul of a family.   She determines the atmosphere of the family life.   With an unhappy mom, it’s almost impossible to have a happy family.  However, most of the moms are worried too much of their kids: school, work, health, marriage — almost everything of their kids.  How can a mom like this be a happy mom?

According to the Law of Attraction, you can get whatever you want, as long as you have strong enough desire.

If a mom believes her kids have the power and ability to deal with all the issues and difficulties in their lives, this “believe” will become a “bless”.  As a consequence, her kids will become truly blessed because of such strong blessing from their mom.  On the contrary, if a mom worries too much of their kids, this “worry” may become a “curse”.  The aftereffect might be her kids becoming what she worries about.

Therefore, mom, please examine your each and every flashing thinking in your mind: do you truly believe and thus bless your kids, or do you worry too much?  Truly, if you love your kids, don’t worry for them, believe in them, bless them!

I read this Chinese article from here.  This article came in just in time.  I need such positive thinking.  Kids have their own way of life, and they have to learn to face and experience their own life.  As a mom, the best I can do is to believe in them, trust them, and bless them.

别对你的孩子担心太多

证严法师说:“如果一个父母常常担心他的孩子,他的孩子会没有福气;因为福气都被父母给担心掉了。”

师父又说:“如果父母希望他的孩子有福气,就要多多祝福他的孩子,而不是担心他的孩子。”

一位年轻人听到这样的话十分兴奋,回到家马上转述证严法师的话给他妈妈听。从此以后,他母亲就很少再对他唠叨了,他看到母亲也不会再躲,反而在下班之余,会找母亲聊聊天,他觉得现在他跟母亲像朋友一般自在。

妈妈常常是一家的灵魂人物,她掌握了一个家的家庭气氛,我相信:如果没一个快乐的妈妈,就很难有一个快乐的家庭。然而,大多数的妈妈都过份地担忧子女:课业,工作,婚姻,健康——几乎无所不担心,你想这样的妈妈会快乐吗?

用“吸引力法则”的说法,就是“心想事成”。一件事情如果你用很大的“念力”去相信它,它就会如你所相信的去“实现”你相信的。

一个妈妈如果相信:她的孩子有能力去面对他自己的生活困境 与难题,那么这个相信就是一个“祝福”,而她的孩子也会因着这样的祝福而蒙福的。相反的,如果一个母亲老是“觉得”她的孩子不懂事,不会照顾自己,一定会吃亏上当的,那么这个“担心”很可能就成了“诅咒”,以后你的孩子果然就会如你之前所担心的那样,老是出状况令你担心。佛家讲“愿力”、“念力”,你的愿有多大,实践的力量就有多大。

从今天起,我们要当心去检查自己的每个“念头”,你对孩子:是担心多?还是祝福多呢?真的,爱你的孩子,与其担心,不如祝福吧!其实对于我们所关心的人,不管是家人、朋友、恩人、师长、同学、同事等,也都要给予全然的祝福,这样,不用因担心挂念而让自己睡不着,就是双赢!因为,“心想事成”,我们的祝福一定会实现的,从现在起,把担心丢掉,让祝福常在。
