    “When will my son be ready to start lessons”?

    this was a question asked by a mother of 4 years old.

    As many  mothers are asking the same questions, I’d like to shed some light on the topic, and share with you my experience.

    #82. Alive Until Expired

    #82. Alive Until Expired

    Yesterday  I was talking to a  dear friend.

     She celebrated her 80th a while ago.

    A wise, talented, intelligent woman. A woman that you’d feel privileged to include in your circle of friends.

     She apologised for wearing a sleeveless top.

    It’s too hot, she said.

    I asked why is she apologising, and she said ,she can’t show
    her arms “like that”.

     She meant  flabby arms.

     It made me sad. Women of this calibre need to hide something
    that has to do with their appearance because it’s not up to the public standard?

    What is this standard?  I wanted to shout.

    Something that looks like a young arm?

    Is there an age limit or body appearance limit, that women are allowed to show in public, and hide the rest?

     And who decides what this limit is ?

     A panel of young people?

    Or maybe Children?

    Or elders who feel they need to apologise for looking their age ?

     Society in its best is  made of all ages.

    From babies to old people.

    Each one in its development stage is contributing to the whole.

    Everyone is needed. Every one of us is a colour or a shade in a rainbow of human existence.

    You were young once,  and then you grew into an adult and after that you grew old.

     Do you need to apologise for this?

    Do you need to cover it up?

    Do you need to be approved for  the way you look?

     This phenomenon of anti-ageing, what is it about?

    Why are we trying to get rid of ageing?

    Why are we fighting it?

    We want to age without ageing.

    We want to age pretending we are still young.

     Why not embracing the process of ageing?

    Society will change their attitude towards old age, when elders will change their  attitude towards themselves.

    #81. Grief and Love

    #81. Grief and Love

    In the first stages of my grief I made a decision to experience it all; every emotion and feeling that came in the package of grief and loss.

    I didn’t want to run away from it.
    Something in me knew that if I ran away, this monster will catch me at some point in the future.  I knew it was unavoidable.

    I sort of knew, that I’d rather experience it in real time, while it’s there, fresh… raw… cruel… fierce…uncompromising….

     So, I made a place and space for grief, for pain. for cry, for anger and disbelief.

    Now, from a vintage point of 2 yrs. + 7 months I can see that among the parts that make who I am, there was a wise old woman who knew how to guide all the other parts. 

    And while I was “away” crying the pain of a lost child, moaning the agony  of the maiden, wailing the woman who lost her lover, and lamented the woman who wanted to get old side by side with her  beloved, she – the wise old one – was holding me in her arms, waiting with love and permission to feel it all. As long as it takes...

    She knew... She who knows.   

    We are brought up to believe that life is made of right or wrong, good or bad, ugly or beautiful, black or white.

    And if so – there’s grief or love, sorrow or joy.

    So, in order to live “normal” life you have to “move on from grief”.

    These are WRONG messages.  They have nothing to do with the real raw experience of grief.

    I discovered that love and grief are not either or.

    They are inseparable.

    A few days ago, on our 50th anniversary day,I renewed my vow.

    My vow to love with all my heart. To live my life from the heart. With the heart. And for the heart.

    #80. Let's Talk About Competition

    #80. Let's Talk About Competition

    Let’s talk about competition

     When we look at competition and its meaning, we come across words like:

    ·     Scarcity mentality

    ·     Defeating

    ·     Superiority

    ·     Supremacy

    ·     Opposition

     We are conditioned to compare and compete.

    We are raised to be individualistic.

    The downside of competition is that we don’t compete WITH someone. We compete AGAINST someone.

     When it comes to ART, can you judge art? can you judge beauty?

     Competition ignores the history and the story of a person.

    Children’s competition is my main concern.  

    What message we give children by sending them to competitions?

    And there’s another side to the question of competition:

    Wanting to be like somebody else could hint towards your golden shadow.

    Deep inside, you might have a talent that hasn’t had its chance to reveal itself.

    Your desire to have what another person is having ,might be a projection of a hidden talent you possess.

    This is how competition could turn into inspiration.

    And then there’s competing with our selves, which is a different aspect of competition.

    You can  strive to do better every day, and thus you  can develop, expand, grow and explore more of who and what you are.

    #79. On Communication & Connection

    #79. On Communication & Connection

    Seeing people around me glued to their telephones prompted me to think about communication and connection.

    Communication and connection are not the same.

    Communication is the first step but not the last.

    Most of us today suffer today from lack of connection.

    Music connects.

    Making music connects us with our hearts.

    Playing with others connects us to ourselves and to each other.

    You don’t have to be professional players in order to do it; you don't even need to play well...

    We need to develop the awareness to the way we use devices and screens.

    If we connect to each other at least as much as we connect to our devices, we'd be happier.

    A short moment of connection creates a huge change in people’s hearts and brains.
