What is Family?
When we think about family we will unerringly think of bloodlines, our parents, siblings, children, relatives, ancestors, and things like seniority, loyalty, obligation, inheritance, weddings, funerals and festive gatherings. And all too commonly, the word ‘family’ is followed by ‘rift’, ‘conflict’, ‘division’ or ‘feud’, and therefore much about family is written into our statutes of law and just as often unwritten law, leaving us with no surprise that the prevailing state of our families is inevitably complicated, divided and fraught with issues.
But what if there is more to family than this worldly minefield, which when understood and applied undoes the inevitable outplay of this ‘you and yours’ mentality? In the What is Family articles, our authors share their own experiences and insights into this possibility, the simplicity of bringing to family life the Ageless Wisdom that is intrinsic to The Way of The Livingness, and the importance of the essence of Love and Relationship in this transformation.
Could family mean more than just blood relations or biology, but in reality a quality of relationship and upholding of standards and values?
