Sharing this story has a very sweet delicacy in its innocence but a largely profound truth that I was caught in between laughter and shock.
So I was sharing with my 10-year-old son how I felt papa’s (my father’s) spirit presence in my meditation. My father passed 3 years ago and we did not really connect in this life so I had a blank feeling about my father and always tried to just look at the positive things I got from him, however there was definitely no emotional attachment.
My son was well aware of my non-existent relationship with my father, so when I was sharing with him the love and the gentleness that I felt from my father in my meditation, my son was a little perplexed as these were emotions he didn’t relate to about my father and his comment to me was “nice mum, is there no alcohol or gambling in heaven”.
Hmmmmmmm, where do you go from there!
