A New Awareness

June 23, 2013

Never shall I forget the time I spent with you. Please continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours. – Ludwig Van Beethoven

Amazing words aren’t they.

I Love this quote from Beethoven for a couple of different reasons. First off, Beethoven was connected to his source. And he was connected so deeply. Beethoven knew, at a very young age how things worked and how to live in harmony with the world around him.  The other reason I Love this quote is because Beethoven seems to be a guy that walked his talk. Now I have to be honest, I don’t actually know Beethoven personally, but it seems to me that what I have read about him proves he was a guy who indeed walked his talk, which makes these words mean something more than if he hadn’t.

“Never shall I forget the time I spent with you”. And I don’t think we do. I think we all carry memories of our past relationships with us. After all, those past relationships have helped create the person we are today, and in many cases we were deeply intimate and connected to that person. Just because that intimate relationship has ended does not mean we need to force the memory out of our mind.

“Please continue to be my friend, as you will always find me yours”. I think what Beethoven is saying here is “Our intimate relationship has ended and that’s OK, you were a blessing for me and I am grateful to have shared some of my time with you”.  Not only is this a good idea, but it is also free of ego and hate. Can you imagine, for just a second if every couple with children who were going through a divorce could say this to each other? I wonder, can you even comprehend how different the world would be?

We need a new awareness, one that is free of ego and hate. An awareness that is overflowing with love and compassion, like those words of Beethoven. Even just reading those words from Beethoven makes me feel different, more connected and aware. Imagine if we could inject that energy into all of society.

If you are a parent going through, or about to go through a divorce, I pray that these words can help you elevate yourself to a place of conscious awareness that allows for a continued co-operative and nurturing parenting relationship with your child(ren)’s other parent. The entire planet benefits in a positive way from that.
