Be the best mother to yourself…

“The world is on fire”, that’s the message of my friend from US. But no worry, as long as you’re full of water (by which read: being patience and full of love) inside, the fire outside will not disturb you.

It’s hard to deny the threatening news about war and virus giving birth to the many crying babies within. From doubt, fear, protest, anger, till tired.

And those crying babies will never stop crying by condemning and blaming. The good news, those crying babies will stop crying if you become a loving mother to yourself.

As practical step, one of the important energy that you should take good care inside is victim energy. Long experience of being harmed, being treated unequally created this energy.

If you don’t heal this victim energy by keep hugging, the negative impact of the burning world will be worse and worse. It can even open the gate of chronical illness.

For that reason, learn to take a healthy distance from this energy. It’s the product of the past. The grip will be loosening if you focus on the lesson, not the punishment.

Everytime victim energy visit you in the form of bad memory, doubt, fear or even anger, visualize a crying baby within. You’re not those crying babies.

You’re a loving mother. Give those crying babies a beautiful rose of understanding: “Those wounded past is here to give you maturity”.

As material of contemplation, it’s blowing wind that makes kites fly, it’s knife that transforms ordinary bamboos into beautiful flutes.

After giving the beautiful rose of understanding, remember to smile to those crying babies. Like a mother who’s blessed by her own baby, you’re also blessed by bad memory and anger that come from the past.

They’re here not to burden you, but to perfect the quality of your love. If you want deeper guidance, no matter how holy the soul is, deep inside there’s always darkness and light.

Put both darkness and light as part of the same Yin-Yang. Without darkness, there will be no light. Darkness is here to brighten the light.

In the same way, without bad memory there will be no good memory. Bad memory is here to brighten good memory. That’s what I mean by being the best mother to yourself.

As soon as you heal those crying babies within, the negative impact of the burning world will be very minimum. Remember, without war inside the effect of war outside will be very minimum.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
