Hello world. The following was written 8/14/2015.
My Husband and I were relaxing on our back patio when our neighbors decided to go to war with each other. Problem is their children were not just hearing and witnessing this altercation. The children were in the middle of it. As things were being thrown and threats with power tools are made, the children were there being placed as a barrier between one parent and the other.
Our neighbor and his girlfriend decided to argue and fight outside. In his rage he decided chasing her around a baby stroller with a running chainsaw was a great thing to do in front of his 6 children, until she fell down and began to scream for someone to help her. Then he decided getting into her face and using his size to intimidate just wasn’t working enough. He then threatens to have her removed from existence and starts throwing things at her. As we open the gate to our yard and start recording all of this, he decided to come at my Husband and get in his face. Calling us perverts for recording his family. To which I hand Alex the phone and he dials the local police department. All the while the guy is going off, screaming at my Husband as he is talking with PD on the phone.
Ten minutes later the police show up and have a nice conversation with the neighbors. The entire time they lie. She goes to great lengths to protect him and keep him from going to jail. Saying, “Oh no officer, he wasn’t throwing things at me. He wasn’t chasing me with a chainsaw. I had his tools and he chased me and I fell down. He was cutting a branch off the tree with the chainsaw.” The officer is telling them to take it indoors without power tools or someone needs to leave. The police left, so no more fighting and arguing. No more chainsaw chasing and screaming for help. No more flying debris, as 5 small children and an infant stand in the line of fire between warring parents. Ugh!
My brothers, you are the one, teaching your children the judgments and reactions they will have and use in their lives. You are the one, teaching them what it is they should believe in. You are the one, who is THE EXAMPLE for them. Think about the shit you are teaching your children. Think about every egoistic judgmental belief you would teach them. Think about every angry gesture you have used in front of them or ON THEM. Think about all the garbage, YOU ARE TEACHING THEM.
The children take in all they hear and witness. They take in what you are doing and they BELIEVE YOU when you say what you will do. Think about what it is you say to them. Think about those judgments you hand out like candy to them. You rot them from within their own minds with every judgmental egoistic belief you would teach them to conform to without questioning. You indoctrinate your children into willingly slavery. You do these things to your children with your thoughtless self centered need to be in control and power over all around you.
My brothers, you repeat the patterns taught to you. You do to your children what has been done to you.
Blessings on your journeys my brothers. Hugs and love. You are loved. I love you.
