LOVE This Quote from Karmapa on Relationships

 

While prepping the syllabus for my  fall online course via Interdependence Project, The Journey of Relationships, I came across this quote from the Karmapa (head of a major Tibetan Buddhist lineage) on his Facebook page about taking responsibility for our part in relationships:

Watching My Daughter Learn To Ride Brings Up Unexpected Emotion

When my children were younger I was adamant about having only two-wheeled modes of transport in our house; no trikes, no big wheels, no three-wheeled scooters, no training wheels.  “You’re torturing them,” the grandparents scoffed.  “They need real bikes, ones they can actually learn on,”  they warned.  But I, with the strong support of my husband, held firm.  We introduced the Strider, a pedal-less bike designed to help children transition smoothly from it to pedal-bikes (sans trainers) when each of ou
