In the 22-part Video/DVD Series entitled“Understanding The Spirit You Are” by Roger B. Lane, Ph.D., theFounder/Director of Cosmos Tree, there is a part of one Video/DVD that has stood out to me for over 15 years. And here it is:

In Video/DVD #7 entitled “Living The Truth” Dr.Lane tells us that “I have a beautiful, beautiful 15-year-old son and one of the things as a custodian of his that I’m bringing forward is for him to learn to listen to himSelf, to trust himSelf so if his friends are doing all sorts of things and they say ‘come on, you do it’!he listens to that voice inside …”

Dr. Lane goes on to explain that his son chose “to play basketball at a level of competition that was appropriate for him even though he would be leaving his friends behind … I’m really proud of the decision he made, which was to be true to himSelf and honor his abilities and not squash them and hide them but to develop them, not flaunt them but to develop them. … to have the strength of listening to yourSelf, your truth even if it means separating from your friends or your culture or your background. It’s a wonderful, wonderful gift he gave himSelf by listening to his truth that was within him.”

Here’s what parents in particular need to Learn from Dr. Lane’s wonderful Example of Proper Parenting:

Dr. Lane Teaches the Focus into Spirit, Which isOur Truth. Focusing into Spirit is Being Present. To be Present call in the Light Of The Most High by saying, “For the Highest Good Lord, God, send me Your Light!” Then ask the Lord, God for theHighest Good to give you the experience of being Present now!” Do This as often as needed! There are many Tools on cosmostree.org to help you do this including Tools For Living Free #87 titled “Being Present”

Dr. Lane Teaches parents in particular that they are custodians of their kids. They don’t own them; they are not “yours”; they belong to the Lord, God and you are given the Blessed Opportunity to Nurture them! Dr. Lane stays in This Truth as Dr. Lane speaks of Dr. Lane’s son. You need to do that, too! 

Dr. Lane enCourages his son to Listen to himSelf “despite the lack of outer validation.” You need to do that, too. I work with kids from ages 16-to-25 or so to help them find the jobs or internships that best fit their abilities/what they truly want to do. One-hundred percent of the time their parents, who are the ones who hire me, try to stop them. As Dr. LaneTeaches, that is what our families do because they do not want anyone to “leave them”; they want to maintain the status quo.

Finally, as I have also Learned from Dr. Lane asa Student, including from watching this revolutionary Video/DVD many times is that your kids will do as you do; they will model your actions. Teach your children to listen to themSelves by listening to yourSelf. Teach your kids to live in their Truth by living in yours. Teach your kids to honor their abilities by honoring yours. Teach your kids to be Present by Being Present yourSelf. Treat your kids with Neutrality, Kindness and Compassion as Dr. Lane recommends for all of us earlier in this Video/DVD by treating yourSelf that way inside yourSelf.

A great place to start is by using the Two-PartRelease Technique to let go of negativity as often as need be like this: call in the Light Of The Most High as noted above. Then ask the Lord, God for theHighest Good to take any negativity from you! Tell yourSelf, “(your name), it’sOK to let it go!” Then let it go! And repeat as often as you need to.

There is no “agenda” in Spirit; the only “agenda” is God’s agenda/Loving Him through the Focus into Spirit. Be There andBe with your kids with This Focus!

Start with this Video and blog! Practice Loving yourSelf inside yourSelf by following the Example in this Powerful TeachingTool featuring Dr. Lane and see what happens with your kids!

My family lost a cherished relative this year. As the holidays approach, I can’t help feeling a little sad for the loss of this person in my life and for the way in which it has changed the family dynamic. This loss also has me thinking about my own aging and that of my other family members, some of whom are not in good health. If I stay with this thinking I can easily get into worry about the future and what that may bring. So, what to do about my holiday blues? Here are the steps I followed to release the blues and stay Focused on the Present!:

I think most would agree my life right now seems “stressful”. I’m eight months pregnant with my fourth child; just sold and packed up my house; and moved my family into my parents’ home while we wait to close on the new home we purchased. Did I mention that my brother and his family of four are also living with my parents while he waits to close on his new home? That’s 6 adults, 5 toddlers, a dog and baby on the way… It’s been hectic to say the least!

I’d like to share a few tips on how I use the Tools available through Cosmos Tree to remain Neutral through this situation. Tools that you too can use to find Neutrality in your life:

If looks could kill I’d slay all day. I’d knock ‘em dead like an advertisement featuring a gaggle of leggy 90’s mega, super models donning Versace with long-burn cigarettes dripping from their perfect pouts. If looks could kill hearts would cease beating, final exhales would rush out on busy street corners and multiple 911 calls would cite a vixen as the criminal. My culprit signature would be high heel footprint everywhere I struck and, though the FBI would trace my tousled mane-sightings, I would always be just out of reach and beyond prosecution. That would be if looks could kill.

“Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose,” Janis Joplin crooned from the dust of my 1970’s record collection. I sang along as raspy as much my childhood voice could accommodate, quickly digesting this advice as the embodiment of the theory that the less you have, the less that can be taken away from you. Freedom through this lens appeared as a badge of honor worn by those who stayed light on their feet, lived on the outskirts of all that life has to offer and carved themSelves into the shadow of what they actually wanted for fear they would be attached to it, leveraged by it or lose it. From what I could see it also looked like heavy smoking, motorcycle riding and un-brushed hair.

Recently, my children have begun to wonder and ask questions about Spiritual Realities like “Who is God?”; “Who is Jesus?”; “What is Grace?”; etc. Despite the fact that I am a devout Initiate On The Path Of Soul Transcendence who spends much of her time Focused on the Spirit within and in Love and in Devotion to the Lord, God, I initially felt afraid I would not be able to answer these questions. How do I explain something in words that I know directly through experience so that it can be understood by children?
