Hearing the Children

Some Background

For each of us, deep inside, there is a child who has not been heard, a child who has been made wrong, a child who has had to go it alone, a child who has been denied, a child who has been brought up by "The Book", a child who has not had the opportunity to share with the elders of the tribe ....

My first question when I started working with myself was ' If we are born in Innocence ' ... oneness with the god/divine/atman/... etc ... what is it that separates us from that beingness ... ?

The second question was 'what is the potential of the possible Hu-man' ...?

The 'work', which is continuing, started ... not to blame anyone ... not to find a 'scapegoat' ... not to find a cure ... not to give brief answers ... but to find a reason, to understand, why the children are going through what they are going through ... drugs, HIV, suicide, rebellion etc ... in order that perhaps our children's children might just find another way that would not lead down the path we see many going down now.

The answers have come not from one research source, not from talking to just a few, but from putting together fragments from countless articles, countless sessions ... reconnecting the fragments ... the process of 're-membering' ... and hearing the children … David and anunda …

When you have had access, as I have had on many occasions in my work, to 4 or 5 generations of the one family, the subject of memory takes on a whole new meaning ...

When you have allowed more than one 'druggie' to tell you that taking drugs legitimises his or her nightmares and causes someone to take notice, then maybe you too will understand ...

When you have had more than one Alzheimers sufferer tell you she doesn't want to remember ....

When you have a disturbed child diagnosed with ADD(h) tell you no-one will listen, they're all too busy ...

A common story from these kids is "When I'm bombed out, people take notice of me, people hear me, people tell me its OK to hallucinate.     They'll even talk to me about my experiences and share theirs ..."

For hallucinations read 'Transpersonal Experiences'.

How many unique experiences do you have in a life time?

How much of your life is, in fact, a series of 're-actions' based on the inherited patterns, hopes, fears, thoughts, dreams and nightmares of people who have been dead a very long time?

As a child, how many would listen to your 'rememberings', those things that came to you from sources no one could explain ... or made wrong ... do you remember your childhood nightmares and your parents' reactions to them? ...

... OR do you actively not want to remember them!

If people would bother to listen and ask, rather than debate the colour of the sky, they would find that the children who take drugs, the children diagnosed as ADD(h) and many others could probably write the text material and the syllabus for the Education System.  They have not forgotten what you are proposing to teach them.  They remember that they were born for the 21st century ...

These things I know from hearing the children without judgement - and they know I am not judging them - and they cry in front of me because "No-one has ever let me express myself without telling me what to think before."

From what ego-centric desire do we need to shape their beliefs - Christianity and all of the other religious cults have done that for the last 2000 years - and Alzheimers is the result for the elderly and suppression of the children is the result of the continuation of religious dogma ...

The ferral children living under the streets of Hobart, the one's who have dropped out of the Education system and found a tribe with like knowing will survive long after the system has had its day with us and the others.

Has anyone really bothered to listen to what they have to say???

I will not label either David or anunda nor put them in a ‘box’, nor will I allow anyone else to label them in any way ... though some have tried ... I am conscious of the projections of limitations and beliefs ...

All I will say is that what they are, and are becoming, is the birthright of every man, woman and child ..and I am humbled and in awe of the possibilities ...

There are no more tears left in me -
I now cry the tears of the people who tell me their stories ...
... to help them cry ...
