Children flying the nest

My beautiful daughter Ana, informed me last night that she will be soon moving to New York City having landed a new job there. She had been looking for a while to move to the States and it is like everything in life, you don't start to believe it is happening until it is actually happening and the wheel is in motion. Nevertheless, I couldn't help remembering Gibran Khalil Gibran's words in "The Prophet" where he shares his insight on children:

" Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
Beautiful Anita with me in Dublin

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of to-morow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bow from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrow may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the Archer's hand be for gladness;
For even He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable. "

And with that, I can only rejoice for my beautiful Ana as she walks fearless and tall on the path she is manifesting every step of the way.
 
And for my other two children, Maria and Max, I wish from all my heart for Their Heart's Dreams to come true. 

Blissful mummy with Maria and Max
And for ALL the children of the world, I pray they always feel loved, supported and cared for by Life itself as it wraps its arms around them with every step they take.

What happened to me since my last post - (Part 2) - Going solo in 2015

After 4 years following, Swami Aliyananda Paramahansa, the time came to find my own feet, my own guru, my own light. I couldn't follow in someone else's footsteps and be in their shadow.
I started to question my belonging to a group and the implication and consequences to it. This questioning was backed up with dreams and revelations which led me to separate myself from what has been my lamppost for over 4 years.
Was it hard? yes, very, as one needs to redefine what defined them initially and one has to find their own voice, their own song, their own dance and their fragrance. And when one has been swallowed in a group identity as I was, serving the interest and purpose of one person, it was difficult to see the woods from the trees. Saying all of this I am ever so grateful to Aliyananda for all she has taught me and shown me about myself and herself. She was a good teacher for me and thanks to her I was able to realise what it was I really wanted to do and where I wanted to be.

 Get your light shining - However shy it is
 One unforgettable moment, was an outing we did with Satish Kumar in Dartmoor in August 2015. We never went to India with Aliyananda, but instead we went with a group led by Satish to Dartmoor and had a wonderful outing.

 Outing with Satish Kumar in Dartmoor
I have just come back from a trip to Iceland and Madrid and am ready to embrace anything new in my life. I feel blessed with my life, my friends and my family. I am blessed, I don't actually feel it, I know that I am blessed.

What happened to me since my last post (Part 1) - Trip to Lebanon september 2014

 One of the happiest memory of my trip
Much water has gone under the bridge since my last blog which was a year and a half ago!!!
Major milestones was my trip to Lebanon - my roots - with my kids.
I am the daughter of the Lebanese Cedar. Here resting in its lap
Going back to my homeland with my children was a very special event which has left me wanting to go back again, again and again…
I needed to take my father's ashes back and wanted my kids to connect with part of their genetic heritage. Thanks to my wonderful cousin Néda, who not only opened her house and arms to us but fully opened her heart to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
All the family with my cousin Néda first from the left and next to her Fred my other cousin.
Seeing my nannies Faridé and Wissal touched my heart and I can't thank enough Georges and Nadine for driving us everywhere and being amazing hosts with Néda. I hope one day I can repay all the favours and blessings bestowed upon me during my stay there.

Visiting many holy places, be it the cedars, our Lady of Lebanon, our childhood summer house in Sofar… everything was unforgettable.
