I sat down with J on a park bench, waiting for the hiking group to get going. And commented on the troubles one of my children is going through. She said, and she always does this in the most non-judgemental-way, ”I believe that every single person comes here with their…mess. Their contracts, karma, intricately complexity of mind and things they have to work out. And that every time we interfere, try to push, or help, in gets in the way of their healing. Unless they ask for it and you’re part of that healing. I don’t know how it is for a mother, with her children. It must be tremendously difficult to let them be on their path without wanting for them.”
