I was reading Brian Anderson’s blog postings on Zaadz. Brain is the CEO and Zaadz purpose is defined as “The quick version of what we’re gonna do: build THE most inspired community of people in the world… Imagine social networking with a purpose, a community of seekers and conscious entrepreneurs circulating wisdom and inspiration and wealth and all that good stuff. Fun fun fun. ”
The posting that caught my attention was about the book Parenting from the Inside Out. Here’s what Brian had to say…….. “It’s interesting b/c I actually want to write a book with my friend Dan. He’s written two: The developing Mind and Parenting from the Inside Out. (btw: the last pope read The Developing Mind and invited Dan and his family out to the Vatican for a private audience…the guy’s amazing and is currently working with the Dalai Lama and others scientifically showing how meditation actually rewires the brain…but that’s for another Note .
The theme of the Parenting book (which I have read most of but not completed) is simple: the better a parent knows him or herself, the better parent he/she will be. (Technically, the science of it goes something like this: the healthy attachment of a child is a strong predictor of that child’s well-being. You can predict how healthily attached a child is to a parental figure by how “coherent” that parent’s life narrative is–which basically means how well that individual has integrated their life story strongly predicts their child’s healthy or unhealthy attachment to them which highly predicts that child’s well being…powerful stuff…)”
So what does that have to do with A Better Way to Live and Work. Well, everything. What this says is that the more we have a clear life story, a clear purpose and vision for our life the healthier our relationship will be with our children.
Now, can I prove that, no. But like everything else I write I ask you does it make sense to you? It certainly makes sense to me.
