Family Karma

It is commonly known that issues, traits and beliefs are passed on from parent to child through the generations. This is of course true for the simple reason that we are taught those attitudes while growing up.

What may not be so commonly known is that a great deal, perhaps the majority of such issues and traits, are the result of the tone, feeling, or energy of the mother while pregnant and while holding the child in the early preverbal stages. This induces a tonal quality into the child’s psyche and cells of the child’s body. In that way, the child grows into adult relationships and beliefs that mimic those of the mother, or primary care giver.

Then in adult life, the individual recreates those relationships with spouse and friends. For that reason, the life one creates for themselves offers a powerful gateway to understanding what was going on in the mother’s life and psyche in those very early years. Also, understanding what was going on in those early years sheds light on how and why we created the lives we did. One reason why children of the same mother may be very different emotionally and psychologically can be because the life and psychological state of the mother was different when each of her children was born.

As we evolve and work through our issues, these conditionings and biases are overcome, or at least our relationship with them becomes healthier as we see them as if more and more from a distance as opposed to being consumed by them.

Cats

Cats, by Michael MamasWe get a fair number of stray cats around our house. Some of them are incredibly peaceful and affectionate. So it’s very easy to be kind with them and try to find out if they have a home nearby. In some cases, when they end up living under our porch for a number of months and it is clear they don’t have a place to live, Judi often finds them a good home.

There’s a whole spectrum of behavior among these cats, ranging from very tame and affectionate to completely wild and unapproachable. If you do happen to accidentally corner one of the wilder ones, they are all claws and fangs.

It saddens me to see how these cats seal their own fate based upon their behavior. You wish you could just let the wild ones know to calm down—everything’s fine. They are creating their own problems. Of course, you can’t do that.

Humans are strikingly the same way. We create our own heaven or hell, determined by our relationship with the world.

How to Expedite Negotiations

Expediting Negotiations, by Michael MamasI just posted a new article on LinkedIn titled “How to Expedite Negotiations”. Comments on the article itself are welcome. The article begins:

"Negotiations generally involve multiple people telephone conferencing or sitting around the table. Remarkably, even at the highest levels, personalities count more than anything, even more than facts and rationality. By managing personalities and artfully integrating them with facts and logic, you become the most valuable person at the table…"

Super Bowl

Super Bowl - Michael MamasA number of times yesterday and today, I have been asked to write something about the Super Bowl.  I thought to tell you about all the silly and fun pregame antics we have enjoyed among ourselves here at Mount Soma throughout the playoffs through today, but it seemed to not be enough to say or very easy to convey either.  It all just naturally built upon itself as a bunch of hilarious back and forth emails and frivolities.

There was just an interview with the Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning that was personally quite moving for me.  It is likely his last game before retirement.  He said what was most important to him was to earn the respect of his teammates and coaches.  That is certainly one of the most important things in life.  You can’t expect to gain respect from all the people who do not really know you, but to earn the respect of those that are close to you, those who see and work with you on a regular basis is a most laudable life goal.  I can honestly say that I have deep respect for all of the people with whom I have the honor to be around here at Mount Soma and work with closely and I know they feel the same.  For that I am most grateful.

Enjoy the Super Bowl!  If you do not like football, there are always the commercials and halftime show!!
