self education

when i was pregnant with O my life changed. decisions that i made were no longer as simple as in the past because they concerned another. i was prepared to deal with the consequences of my choices but that wasn't enough for my little one that would enter the world. 

this is when a new type of self education began for me. i wanted to find out all my options for a myriad of things and the more i learn the more i was inspired. this has continued with thoughts of his future and what i hope he experience through his childhood. living in the present can be even harder at times now than ever. 

what i have discover is that with all the things i want for him in the end he will make his own way. so i will allow that to happen by letting him experience his childhood with as little pressure from the traditional expectations of society as possible. no that doesn't mean he is going to hide away from the rest of the word until he is 18 but i really want him to be free to play and enjoy the simplicity in childhood. 

the philosophies of Rudolph Steiner have become of great interest to me because he has developed many facets of the anthroposophical lifestyle that are rooted in both spiritual and analytical considerations. 

Anthroposophy is a path of knowledge, to guide the spiritual in the human being to the spiritual in the universe…. Anthroposophists are those who experience, as an essential need of life, certain questions on the nature of the human being and the universe, just as one experiences hunger and thirst.
