Our wounded child…

With practice, we can see that our wounded child is not only us. Our wounded child may represent several generations. Our mother may have suffered throughout her life. Our father may have suffered. Perhaps our parents weren’t able to look after the wounded child in themselves. So when we’re embracing the wounded child in us, we are embracing all the wounded child in our past generations. This practice is not a practice for ourselves alone, but for numberless generations of ancestors and descendants.

  1. Absolutely amazingly amazing – thanks for sharing this wonderful and incredibly potent quote! Most relevant thing I’ve looked at in a good number of minutes in regards to what I’m doing instead of need to be doing and working on at the moment 😂 Thus also serves as a kindly gentle reminder to get on with my related tasks )) Thanks again ❤️- Mary aka Dina
