Open for them

Our work/play with grandchildren is often to open them to wider worlds…as our worlds are becoming for us panoramic.

See the person

Facets are a way to say, see the person in my contemplation in one non-word.

No knowing

Perhaps there is no knowing, only discovering.

Connections others miss

We see connections others miss…relationships…wholeness…weaves and tangles…hear music…feel life’s widening circles…invite mystery and sacred…play…experience life in new ways…are freer…calmer…have a need for solitude…declutter…grow by reducing, losing…find essence…reconstellate our lights and memories…choose slow and deep…tell stories rather than give advice…have a joyful responsibility…

However painful

For the good of the grandchildren we should be seeking out felt changes in consciousness—however painful.

Directioning

It flows both ways—to and from the elders—no, all ways—this directioning, this knowing, this discovering and the resultant painful changes in thinking. We are not the sole wisdom bringers and direction finders.

Barometers

Grands are barometers for the grandchildren. What are the changes? What do they portend? What might we do? Be? What is the weave of the wind, and how does it affect the weaver?

Let’s turn inside out each old and common expression and see what it might hold.

More we miss

“Both/and” we read is more true than “either/or.” Let us instead say “All/and.” All reminds us there are many more factors than two; And reminds us that even if we include all we imagine, there are more we miss.

No specific star

Grands cannot control the future, so they best not have a set goal for how it will look. That does not mean give in, rather have direction only: human- and person-centered; or playful; or conversing; or east toward the morning light rather than for a specific star. This is as it must be, for of the billions of grandchildren to come some will make for this star or that, and what’s important is making for light.

On not eradicating poverty

We ought not seek to eradicate poverty: only the suffering from it. For instance some take a vow of poverty for the good of others; some don’t know they are poor and have an equal chance as the rich to be happy. The pain might be in despair, being held down, or unending illness. These we can expect to work on.
