Punishment…

Published April 22, 2014 by Jamie Barone

“It is not necessary to isolate children and withdraw our love to teach them how to “behave”. In fact, it is entirely possible to help children learn to be cooperative and decent members of society without ever issuing punishments, rewards, or artificial consequences of any kind. No quick and easy method will solve every conflict. Instead, we need to treat each situation as the unique challenge that it is, and try to be flexible and creative, all the while giving our children the love and respect they deserve.”

-Aletha Solter

puI absolutely believe in this… wholeheartedly. I live this and find that there is never a need for punishment in order to teach, in order for a child to learn, in order to turn a behavior around. In fact, children LOVE when we take the time to gently teach them and help them to learn new ways of handling situations, new ways of handling their emotions – it empowers them in a most wonderful way – it lifts them up, rather than tear them down – it fills them with hope and healthy self-esteem, rather than shame and condemnation. They SO LOVE to please us and make us proud… and they SO LOVE to learn and to become empowered. And more importantly, they Love to give and receive LOVE like no other being on this planet. Punishment does not teach anything… other than… well… punishment.

Grace…

Published April 9, 2014 by Jamie Barone

braceGrace… Gosh, so many stones being thrown when we see someone behaving in ways that are an obvious cry for help, an obvious “looking for Love and trying to fill up an empty space in all the wrong ways and places.” Wouldn’t it be beautiful if we would ALL stop trashing others (whether they are in the media or in our own lives), if we ALL might realize that not one of us can cast that first stone, and, that we ALL have large planks in our own eyes to work on…

What we focus on grows… when we see someone behaving in a bizarre manner, is it not clear that they are deeply hurting? Is it not clear that they are needing Love? If that was your precious child, or someone who you truly Love, would you trash them? Would you belittle and ridicule them? Would you publicly humiliate them and speak badly about them to anyone who dares to listen? Or would you reach out and hold them close and Love them deeply? Would you reach out and ask others to send Love and blessings and prayers for this beautiful precious child?

When we are able to meet others with compassion, rather than trashing them… when we are able to close our eyes and sincerely send authentic Love to them, and embrace them, with sincerity, truly caring to heal their brokenness… when we are able to see that they are one of us – not to be trashed and bashed, but to be taken in and held and Loved… THIS is when our world will change. THIS is when the brokenness of others will begin to heal.

Please… just… think about it.

Thank You.

Love,
Jamie

Beautiful Light…

Published February 26, 2014 by Jamie Barone

lighSometimes…
Sometimes, we don’t see our own light…
We tend to hear the voices in our head that tell us we’re not good enough, that we’re not who we should be, or where we’re suppose to be. We hear too loudly the drumming in our minds all the voices of this world. We see and feel the shame, regret and guilt that others have instilled. And as a result, we, at some point began speaking the very same words over our own beautiful-being. And worse — we came to believe these lies — without question.

Sometimes…
Sometimes, we don’t know our own light…
Try as we might, we look and we look,
Searching day and night, deep within…
Sometimes, we get a glimpse of our beautiful light
And we feel that momentary inner peace,
That peace that transcends ALL…
Only to vanish again in the ever-present conflict of our mind.

Sometimes…
Sometimes, we simply need others to show us our beautiful light. Someone who Loves us unconditionally. Someone who is authentic, who is honest and trustworthy, compassionate and caring, true and faithful. Someone who will shine their light upon us, in order to show us our own. Someone who is able to Love from that place that only the soul knows — that place from where only the truest and purest of Love comes.

Please know this…
Your incredible light is beautifully brilliant and makes such a difference in our world. You deserve to see, feel, and know your majestic light and how brightly it shines. You deserve nothing less than to know how truly beautiful you are… How amazingly special you are… And how purely Loved you are…

Love,
Jamie
