Harmony at Home – Crucial for Family Development

And happy December has begun. Perhaps I could reflect on the word happy, as we know what is happening all over the world. But it is precise because of this that we must believe in that good and the best in man and people. I’m thinking about it. And I think about the importance of family and family harmony, about which I will say something more below.

Harmony at domestic is an important factor if the members of the own family desire its improvement collectively and individually. If the purpose of the own family unit is to breed, deliver up, train, proportion, and care for the offsprings, not anything of these can be a success if it loses harmony inside. If the home life is a stricken or pressured one, in consequence, the same might be meditated in the work he does. No self or circle of relatives development is possible if there are discord and disharmony at home. Harmony among mom and dad, mother and father and rancid springs, and among siblings need to be triumphant in abundance for the development of the circle of relatives.

A misconception or false impression, lack of communication, forgetting and negligence of man or woman obligations towards every different, selfishness, loss of endurance, and absence of love are some of the reasons for the discord and disharmony at domestic. Everybody within the family has to be aware of his or her obligations and obligations closer to the opposite. Even Little kids must be assigned a number of appropriate responsibilities to the circle of relatives. Expenditures should be in line with sales. What is expected from one must not be beyond his ability. In male-dominated societies, try and opposite the location from father to mom would bring about discord and disharmony in their own family.

When there’s no harmony within the family, notwithstanding the development, you will see the deterioration inside each thing of the family. Frequent quarreling among husband and spouse, issue to children’s education, the scattered circle of relatives scenario, kids becoming victims of the terrible society, getting hooked on capsules and alcohol by way of father and male kids of the family, prostitution are a number of the bad effects of the discord and disharmony of the circle of relatives.

When the husband recognizes the rights of the spouse and kids of the family and when he is familiar with and fulfills his responsibilities for them and whilst the wife additionally does her part expertise and respecting the rights of others inside the circle of relatives, happiness starts off evolved to succeed. Children could be satisfied and they’ll continue their schooling efficaciously and their destiny can be secured. When there’s peace within their own family, they have the exact chance of doing their corporations and their jobs nicely, and thereby their sales will also boom. When the concord prevails in the own family, the intellectual and bodily health of the members of the family becomes favorable. Therefore in end, if an own family desires its improvement all the contributors have to act in a way that keeps the harmony and peace of it.

And for the end, I wish you a Happy December and a happy upcoming holidays.

If You Are Afraid Of Covid (read this)

Written by Jafree Ozwald

All my life people have always gotten sick. It was normal to get the flu, sniffles, coughing in the wintertime, etc… Now the covid crisis has created with its insidious propaganda a communal undertone of mass paranoia.

What we’re seeing is generations of suppressed fear around our morality coming out into the public eye. Yes, covid is a real virus, yet it’s currently no more of a threat than SARS MERS or the Epstein-Barr virus.

Humanity has been SOLD on covid-19 because the covid marketing agency is broadcasting EVERYWHERE as you see it on every news channel, billboard, mall, food store, and website.

They have created a global paranoia to freak us out and hope we all fall into submission. Because we are soooo terrified of death they can sell us their cure. They don’t want us to see the truth that there’s no scary disease in the air looming over the possibility of getting close to other people.

They don’t broadcast on every news channel the millions and millions of people who are protesting the Scamdemic in every major city around the world.

Over 1 million people died of tuberculosis in 2019 and this was never advertised like covid was. All the efforts to market more fear are orchestrated by the billionaires who control the media, just to create world panic. They did a fantastic job. You bought the ticket..didn’t you? We all did!

And they ingeniously censored out all the anti-covid propaganda on Facebook, Wikipedia, and Google so if you search for ANY other viewpoint or truth on covid now you just see it labeled as ‘conspiracy’. I would be surprised if you’re allowed to read this message right now.

Of course, you probably think my words are based on conspiracy yet I have seen hundreds of hours of evidence since March that prove without a doubt that this is all a big massive Scamdemic.

For you to switch and believe covid is not a threat would make you feel really uncomfortable. You’d have to take the risk to stop trusting those billionaires who are behind the politicians and selling you on the next mandated lockdown.

You’d have to accept that you were fed lies all this time and feel like a fool for being conned into believing the biggest lie in our history this entire year. We would rather stick to what we know (and everybody knows is real) than to feel like we were conned and deceived.

Breaking your ‘covid is a threat’ truth/paranoia would destroy your reality about everything you know is ‘true’ in the world right now. So it’s safer for your ego to stick to the known and what the masses also believe as this creates a sense of belonging. Your reality says yes there are people fighting Covid in the hospitals and dying right now. This is the truth!!

Yes, it’s always safer living amongst the scared sheeple than to be a lone wolf. Everyone believes the threat is real and so you better too!!

You better stay indoors, be safe, be a good citizen, and protect yourself with a good mask… and do not ever get close or become intimate (God forbid) with another human being!! Stay distant from everyone for your own protection!!

On the other hand, you could have the strength to be free from the mass paranoia consciousness. It’s ok if you don’t. Perhaps paranoia is your new comfortable norm and you’re just used to it by now.

Just remember before you die that fearlessness is the only path to total freedom, that is if you decide to jump on a really radical liberating spiritual path again…

Let your heart’s truth decide what your future self will be. Will you choose to live from a space of logical fear or be irrational and come back to trusting in trust?

Maybe a better question is…Are you ever going to be able to let the fear of covid go before THEY say it’s ok and safe now?

Can you even imagine touching or hugging a stranger in public and smile fearlessly as they come closer to you?

Will you never be able to truly feel safe in your body in public spaces again and fall courageously into the unknown until THEY proclaim and advertise it’s no longer a threat?

You decide in the end what ‘reality’ is for you. You decide when covid ends.

I have seen too much evidence. I know too much and cannot wear a mask. I feel it’s totally ridiculous to live such a suppressed controlled life. It’s suicidal.

It’s your choice if you want to be in a fear prison for the next 12 years of your life or find freedom again. Yes, they can make the Scamdemic propaganda could last until 2032!!

When will enough be enough??

It’s sad, yet they are never going to stop advertising that covid is a threat. Not until the masses stop being afraid.

I know you are a Lion in this mass herd of sheep. You are bigger and brighter than fear. Let your soul decide (not your mind) how long you want to relate to your community and live like a prisoner of covid?

I hope you fight for freedom instead of ‘safety.

Grandparenthood Rewards

grandchildrens

No depend on how a lot of others brag and explicit their pleasure in grandchildren, nothing compares to having your very own.

They commonly arrive one after the other (even though twins and triplets might also arise) so you have time to enjoy each with top-notch one-on-one time. While you could nevertheless be running outside of the home, grandchildren input the house to fill weekends and evenings with love and laughter, and then as bedtime nears or Sunday daylight hours fades, they visit their domestic, and you’re left to recover and bask within the afterglow of these tender hearts.

Point Number 1 – You are accountable but no longer completely responsible. You want to set standards and observe recommendations to enhance the fantastic boom and mindset of every baby however you do not should shoulder the burden of homework, washing clothes, cleaning rooms, and other chores and infant-rearing practices. Instead, you play within the yard, build lock-block systems, eat peanut butter and banana sandwiches, and laugh. Since finances are generally eased later in life, grandparents can purchases garments, shoes, and toys that would be not possible at an in advance date or you could make trips to Disneyland or the films simply due to the fact you want to.

Point Number 2 – Grandkids pretty a lot love unconditionally. While they will fuss and fume a bit as children are may not do, maximum youngsters are pleasers and few matters are greater crucial than captivating Grandma and Grandpa. This alluring isn’t for cash or bribes, but alternatively for proper love. Good conduct buys interest, something that frazzled, operating parents can also have little of to spare, but grandparents have an abundance. Love heals all, enriches all, and makes lifestyles lovely.

Point Number 3 – Impatience or endurance, depending on your outlook and critique, reigns with grandparents. Grandparents can be old and grouchy as on occasion happens as the year’s plunge by using, however, they appear to have masses of endurance. If Little Suzy desires to color with the simplest blue crayons, Grandma gladly is of the same opinion. If Wee Willie insists on one extra wagon ride around the block, Ol’ Gramps is sure to consent. After all, out-of-doorways and sunshine are healthy, happy treats. If the circle of relatives is in a rush to head out the door to dinner, grandparents integrate with countless endurance to help little ones into coats and footwear, wiping runny noses and grabbing diapers in direction for the door. They know that nagging hardly ever works (impatience) and that easy games of assistance (persistence) typically do.

I should rave on and on approximately the lovable international of grandparenthood however you might simply sigh and shake your head. I guess it’s miles simply something you have to attempt out for yourself. I comprehend that for a few grandparenthood is a rebirth of parenthood while the child’s dad and mom refuse to love and raise children and that, of course, modifies the grandparent role. Fortunately, my grandchildren stay in strong homes with operating dad and mom who love and adore and maximum happily, they proportion. Grandparenthood is very notable, gratifying, and just undeniable a laugh!

The Art of Grandparenting

grandparents

A seven-yr-vintage female said approximately her grandmother: “She’s vintage at the out of doors however she acts like she’s younger on the inner.” She hit the nail on the head!

Most folks older adults stay lively these days with a number of us nonetheless operating into our seventies. Even those of us who retire in the course of our sixties may additionally spend as a whole lot as one-1/3 of our lives after retirement with our households occasionally encompassing even five generations.

By the center of this century as the “toddler boomers” are the age, the entire United States will resemble present-day Florida in the proportion of the populace composed of older adults. In 1790 less than percent of the population was over 65. In l990 that figure changed into twelve percentage; with the aid of 2030, it will likely be over twenty percent.

Living longer way that greater folks now lead 3 lives: first as youngsters, second as adults with careers and maximum probable as mother and father, and 1/3 as retirees from careers – and for most people as grandparents. During each of those lives, we continually find out and study new matters. We discover aspects of ourselves that we did not recognize existed. Our 0.33 lifestyles are a time for coming across new competencies and innovative opportunities in our internal worlds. It is a time for applying the understanding of a long time to ourselves. It is a time for coming across the total that means of life and for preparing for the future, something that may be.

Being a grandparent approach to different things. Although grandparenting is not the dominant factor of most of our lives, it’s the far thing that is extra critical than most people recognize. For some of us who are actively elevating our grandchildren, it’s miles the maximum important part of our lives. Unfortunately, increasingly more of us are doing just that these days. Some folks are estranged from our kids and from our grandchildren because of strife in our families. But most of us live in ways from our grandchildren and manipulate to keep an active function in their lives although the mail, the phone, and visits.

As grandparents, we have important symbolic and realistic features in our cultures. We are critical truly for what we mean because of the oldest residing representatives of our households. We may be a matriarch or a patriarch for our families. Our roles as own family historians, mentors, and role models can confer reputation and respect for us.

Without grandparents, there may be no tangible circle of relatives line. Children who have had no touch with grandparents miss information in their ancestry. They may not be capable of muster a confident experience of the future as concretely represented by using the fact that older human beings have visible their futures come to be the present and the past.

As grandparents, we are the hyperlinks to the beyond in our families. We can do not forget while the dad and mom of our grandchildren had been younger, now not continue to their liking! We are the repositories of statistics approximately our genealogies (we are properly counseled to document as a great deal of that as we can). That statistic frequently becomes useful fabric for themes that our grandchildren write in school, and every now and then it flora into complete-fledged writing about our circle of relatives trees.

As grandparents we are able to provide advice to our youngsters this is with a bit of luck liked. That is excellently achieved tactfully and while requested for! We can convey our families collectively and foster and preserve communique between them. We can play recovery roles in alleviating demanding situations, hurts, and disappointments in our households. In doing so we want to carefully avoid stirring up problems, the ability for which especially lies simply below the floor in in-law relationships. We are the conveyers of traditions in our families and in our cultures.

We have a whole lot to offer our families and our groups. We are human beings who’ve been there. Whatever knowledge is ought to lie in us. We can see via the posturings of our normal world. We can perceive with the lifestream and the cycles of human life. We recognize what absolutely is essential and what is not. We know that disappointments, heartaches, and ache are herbal components of existence. We recognize that existence goes on without us. We were a part of records and frequently have a hobby in mastering extra about the past. We have seen enough to recognize that everything isn’t always realistic and rational. We have had enough goals and existence reviews to know that the magical can be extra actual than the rational. We have discovered that whatever it’s far – excellent or awful – “it will bypass.”

If we had been fairly clever within the conduct of our very own lives, we have attended to our bodily health and to our spiritual and emotional needs. We recognize that our bodies age, that our minds fail, but that our inner I remains the same during our lives. This is why we experience old in our bodies and minds however not in our spirits. This is why we actually do no longer sense that the image inside the mirror as it should be reflects who we’re. We certainly recognize that we can be vintage on the out of doors however younger on the inside. If we consider it, we can recognize that the existing second in fact is the “eternal now.” In order to sharpen the energy of our lives, we’re well advised to manage our diets and to interact in normal bodily exercising so that we are able to assist our bodies to serve us as well as is viable and so that we do now not work towards the efforts of our our bodies to be healthful.

We also have the posh of dwelling our lives more or much less as we want. We have greater manage over our schedules because of the relinquishing of the responsibilities of the place of business. We have time to mirror and to experience the simple things in lifestyles. We can take time to realize the pleasures of clearly being alive. We can experience the clouds, the trees, the flowers, and the smell of the air. We also can dedicate our time and energy to helping folks who are much less lucky. Most importantly we will relive and solve the past in our memories and reveries. Beyond is a part of our lives nowadays. We recognize what it seems like to lapse into the past as if it’s far existing. Our storehouse of memories leads the maximum people to relinquish the desire to live our lives yet again.

We benefit profoundly that means in existence from the love and admiration of our juniors. The attachment among grandparent and grandchild is second in emotional energy most effective to the bond between parent and infant. The arrival of a grandchild normally triggers a dormant instinct to nurture in us. This is followed by using joy in the delivery or adoption of our grandchild; by recalling our own studies as a parent and as a grandchild; and by means of thoughts about the continuity of our own lives inside the subsequent era.

Our grandchildren have as plenty to provide us as we must offer them. We can revel in pleasures with them without the duties of rearing them. The love and interest we supply them to build their shallowness. Their hobby in our enterprise and in our stories reminds us of our significance to our families. We provide each different the experience of belonging now not only to our families however to the human own family.

As grandparents and as senior citizens, we’re gaining a growing quantity of strength in our society no longer most effective inside the political area however within the moral leadership of our society. We absolutely do have a good deal to offer despite the fact that there’s a bent to disparage the aged. This isn’t the fact within the electricity structures of our society, however, to wit the wide variety of humans in their seventies and eighties in the political workplace. We can advise for the pursuits of the elderly, now not the handiest of our personal but of those people who’re subjected to elder ageism and abuse. But most importantly we are aware of the pursuits and needs of future generations. We are in a function to be powerful advocates for children and dad and mom. Because we aren’t motivated by means of advocacy for youngsters that certainly is advocacy for adults, we can simply suggest the interests of kids.

As grandparents, we are vital sources for our families. But the art of grandparenting requires commitment, information, practice, and perseverance. We can offer approval, loving delight of our grandchildren, and reliable support for our personal offspring. We are the link among the beyond and the prevailing and even the destiny! It is through our grandchildren that we and humanity itself drift inside the stream of lifestyles.

The truth-seeker Robert Nozick said it well:

We all would possibly critically weigh spending our penultimate years in endeavors to benefit others — in adventures to strengthen the motive of truth, goodness, splendor, or holiness — now not going gentle into that appropriate night time or raging against the death of the mild, however, near the quit, shining our mild most brightly.

We are in a period of transition…

space

We are in a period of transition from one era into others when possible
just about everything./ Vaclav Havel/

In the fields of physics, business, spirituality, and even we have been hearing about a paradigm shift for many years now, a new era, a quantum leap, a new world order, a turning point the point, new age, and holographic reality. Even Star Wars brought us a powerful vision of ‘jumping into hyperspace’. Tomas Kuhn as early as 1962 popularized the concept of change paradigm when he described evolution as a ‘sequence of peaceful Zod interrupted by intellectually violent revolutions ’, within whose ‘old conceptual views of the world are replaced by new ones’.

A paradigm shift therefore essentially means a change in an act of understanding life, and thus a change of all our behavior and action. Let us remember what the development of agriculture is like changed the primitive hunting and gathering society, but how the discovery of the printing press saved us from ecclesiastical domination in the age of medieval gloom; or how our personal computer and the World Wide Web help in the transition from local loneliness towards a comprehensive global society.

But however, all these transitions were very important for the development of skills that remained at the level of change.
