10. Living Harmoniously with Learning Disabilities

Harmonious living is being an asset to all people and creation. We fit into place in our family, with friends, and everyone, as a jigsaw puzzle piece fits perfectly, one part, but important to the whole. If that one piece were missing or distorted, the puzzle would not be complete.

Children with learning disabilities need to fit into society harmoniously, too, so that the family unit remains strong and intact at home and out in the world.

To achieve harmony let each action benefit someone and harm no one. Consider the consequences of an action, its result, before acting.

If we feel uneasy about the possible outcome of an action that we are contemplating, than work out an alternate plan. We have our intelligence, and we need to use it in planning how to best resolve the situations we are faced with in life.

If our mind is uncertain about the right course of action, we can first calm the mind by doing some regulated breathing, evenly spaced in and out breaths. Or we can lie down or lie back in a recliner and do a deep relaxation. When our body and mind are calm the right course of action comes into our thoughts.

We do not see the ocean floor because of the movement of the waves, but we can see the bottom of a clear placid lake. When our mind is disturbed, making waves for us, we cannot see the pure truth underlying the mind.

The best resolve is always there, but our thoughts of self-serving desire keep us from seeing clearly to the underlying issues of the problem. The best answer is concealed from us by our own inner turbulence.

By relaxing our mind and body every day we can get a consistently clear view of the probable outcome of an action.

The more we learn to control our body and mind, the more usefully they serve us. Our energy is then used optimally for our own and others' benefit.

H arm no one
A lways rest in the peaceful
R etreat of the inner self within each aspect of the underlying
