I did not grow up following and applying doctrines from a “higher power” or other group.
I feel I was instilled values but nothing really in terms of how to think of the world at large. Of course, I heard from the adults in my life that certain types of people are bad or lazy or good or evil. But there was a disconnect.
When I started recognizing and compiling my truths, I realized that I was also create a list of my beliefs in human beings as a whole – kind of reverse engineering it all.
This is not to discount doctrines because I do think that we can get to our personal truths through broader truths that are taught to us.
There is always power to returning to ourselves and ensuring we are listening to our thoughts, feelings and bodies.
A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood.
