Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

For me, it was my maternal grandmother - "Bubba" - she was not a hugger or very expressive, however
her consistent loving energy to me was a "life-safer". My Mom did a great job while I was young, but I think she became overwhelmed later with the four other sons and the ww2 veteran husband in her life.
I want to write more about my family dynamics later, however, in psychology, there is a theory that if a child does not have this unconditional lover while growing up, they usually do not have a well-developed conscience. The unloved child turns into the "sociopath", the "psychopath", the criminal, etc.
Who was most important to you?

Hi Ron,

My maternal grandmom was the consistant loving energy for me as well. She was a true guardian for one .me.who felt so upset by what I felt about where I landed.

Most of us do have some sort of childhood trauma. This trauma or wounding usually sets up what we can do for a our life work . We heal ourselves and turn around and help others.

It's cool to look a t this way for me. It definitely is a leap over beating myself up about what I did "wrong" or how shortsighted my parents were. ...Actually, they were pretty cool for all the trauma they sufferred as kids.

I fel t myself to be th e "odd one out" no matter who was doing what with me or for me.. I seemed not to fit .there was an awareness that there was so much more to life than we were making of it.

Now in hindsight,20-20, looking back , I see that everyone did/does the best they could/can. And so did /do I.

Since my judging any situation only makes for new such ones to appear, I hope and intend to continue to practice releasing judgement. .keep loving my choices, refining them so they align with the direction in which I am headed.
Knowing what to do is one thing. Actually living as I know to live,, that seems to be the wondrous daily challenge.

Bubba is the loving maternal grandmother that I was writing about.
