There is a natural acceptance in my mind for live-in, lesbian, gay relations. I don’t know how, but it is like this.
If tomorrow my late-teenage, student-daughter comes and declares her decision of carrying on with a pregnancy 🤔🤔🤔🤔what could be my stand!!!!!!”????
The story of Stacey (Canada) shared by a co devotee has left a little deeper impact. (Its about a late teen age heart’s call to go ahead with her motherhood experience despite no from boyfriend and no family support).
If parents’ reactions and decision are the outcome of their conditioning, then, is not the decision of a teenager equally conditioned????? May be even mind Vs heart conditioning…🤔. Does heart (emotions ) also get conditioned??? 🤔
What could be the answer, I wonder….
My present thinking says – its merely New Vs Old conditioning. If parents’ thinking is conditioned, so is the teenagers’.
Parents’ decision is based on their experiences and some wisdom they might have acquired while living on this planet few years more than their teenage daughter. Who will disagree that child birth and then child upbringing are the MOST complicated and difficult things!!!! Can a teenager shoulder such responsibilities, when her own mind is immature!!!!!! Is not child marriage illegal due to such similar reasons!!!! Here the situation is even complex. Having crossed 18, doesn’t upgrade someone automatically to handle such an important responsibility of child rearing, since chances are they are still unemployed and just studying. Moreover, here, no one is willing to share her responsibility. I don’t know much about Govt. support policy at Canada. Question remains that what type of life and future she will be able to provide to her child!!!!!
May be emotional angle has something else to be explored and understood. Again, I don’t know.
Somehow, I am unable to solve this mental confusion. And until my thoughts get untangled, Stacey would continue to be on my mind.
Do I end the discussion with a spiritual note like – the child has come with her/his own destiny (as is generally said here in India)?
I don’t know.
I don’t know what blessings are most desirable, more appropriate at this point of time… Yet…. Blessings are blessings….
God bless Stacey and her child.
Jai Shri Hari 🙏
