The undeniable truth which concerns us all


This is a heavily sick society and failing civilization, already in deep decline, where it seems nearly impossible to prove you're not an elephant.  

In a more mature society of spiritual people and higher morality, what we did with my child would be an area of study and respect. We would be in an open dialogue with all areas of expertise, all bodies of social structure concerned, about our findings through learning and growing outside the only allowed, failing school system in the country. Our experiences, through research, experimentation and sharing with others world-wide, would be supported and also aided for the good of all. We would all be working together to change the existing, failed educational system, each providing their expertise, knowledge, experiences, findings, which would serve social (true) justice, would enhance and promote (true) civilization, based on higher values that would be child-supportive and learning-enhancing. 

A vision still holding...

Non-caring?



When people who have known the case from the beginning have only just signed the petition or not yet.

When people who care about you have stopped asking you how you’re feeling and how you’re holding on.

When those that it likewise affects have shied away from commenting, discussing that which they too experience in their daily lives and know to be true.

When those who are your friends fear to share on their timelines or pretend they don't know you, to protect their profiles and identities.

To my son


I know that you're worried about that English exam that you're supposed to take. I know that you're meant to "re-examine" yourself, fix yourself, continuously doubt yourself. And so much more than the education system and society teach, subliminally but effectively, succeeding most of the time. 

But I have something different to tell you...these thoughts came to my mind and they belong to you as well as to any young person that stumbles across them.

Memories from the future



Two thousand years later, we are still trying to understand the story of Jesus... and many more stories told and passed down through the ages.

Everyone has a different story to tell, which suits each person's already established opinions, beliefs, egoic needs. Can we even know anything at the time of happening? Is there a way?

It's not easy to look into the eyes of innocence and truth when you've already condemned and convicted a mother and child. So, you don't call them to court, you don't have to know their story, you don't need real witnesses and real events. You can and do convict without them.

Under the surface



The pain is unimaginable, immeasurable.

Finding other things to do doesn’t make it go away. It doesn’t lighten it. There is no way I can be who I was before or what people might expect of me. Physical pain, in any form gives me the impression of being alive, the strength to go on, the reminder that I am here. It’s visible, more manageable, an indication of movement in the stagnancy that has been forced on me.

I am also discovering the misconception we have believed of pain, the body, the heart-mind, ego-mind, truth and so much more, much deeper than linear, surface level... through experience.

To do lists


We still like to separate subjects, issues, topics, thinking that this way we have "everything under control", know more, are more mature and/or more competent in our everyday lives.

But our need for separation comes from a deeper fear that we seldom - if ever - truly recognize: we fear the vastness of our being, the grand visible and invisible reality. We need boundaries, just like our bodies reveal our psychical boundaries.

Even in unschooling/homeschooling circles, this separation is evident as it also reveals itself in conversations, habits, requirements, responses, actions. We are still learning, still exiting the old paradigm.

The following post probably wouldn't remind one of  schooling or education but as I have discovered through unschooling myself and educating my daughter, it is one of the fundamental "subjects" that took up most of our time and learning endeavors.

To do lists

One day, I will choose not to separate my blogs, pages, groups, subjects because they will be understood as one.

A Mother’s Testimony



From a little seed…It needs time, it needs care, it needs intuition, it needs trust,
it needs attention, it needs guidance, it needs freedom,
it needs natural conditions.
All that we have underestimated but are necessary for it to bloom and flourish.
