Providing Support

by Madisyn Taylor

 

In a time when the sacred feminine is being honoured strongly, let’s not forget fathers.

The idea of fatherhood is both personal and universal. We all have ideal concepts surrounding fatherhood, and we also have our real fathers—fathers who were there or not there for us, fathers who provided financial support for our families or failed to do so, fathers who loved or neglected us, fathers who were our role models or gave us someone to rebel against. Our father may have been there for us sometimes and not there for us at other times. The process of reconciling the ideal father that resides in our minds with the father that we actually have is a fertile one that can teach us a great deal about ourselves.

Our relationship with our father will often affect our relationships with the other men who will come into our lives. You may have learned to behave and think in certain ways because those were the ways that your father acted and thought. Certain talents that you possess may have been passed down to you by your father. There also may be personal issues that you inherited by virtue of who your father is. Understanding how your relationship with your father has influenced you can help you better understand yourself and the life that you have created.

In a time when mothers, the sacred feminine, and female energy are being honoured, it is important not to forget the importance of fathers. Father energy and mother energy are the two complementary energies necessary to bring a healthy human being to fruition in the world. Many of the ideas surrounding fathers are changing in the wake of more modern parenting styles and the more egalitarian roles that are evolving between the sexes. More men are embodying the mother energy these days, and a woman can provide father energy for her children. Either way, we can all benefit from thinking about our fathers and how they have influenced who we’ve become and the ways that we walk through this world. Let us remember to honour our fathers.

This go out to all the Fathers on our wonderful Earth. The fathers who can spend the day with their family. The divorced fathers who spend the time alone. The fathers who will never see their children grow up. The fathers who have moved on to a better journey beyond. The fathers that cannot remember. The fathers who are sick and cannot be with their children. To all of you, I wish you a blessed Father’s day.

A dad is a person
Who’s loving and kind,
And often he knows
What you have on your mind.
He’s someone who listens,
Suggest and defends…
A dad can be one
Of your very best friends!
He’s proud of your triumphs,
But when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
And helpful and strong.
In all that you do
A dad’s love plays a part –
There’s always a place for him
Deep in your heart –
And each year that passes,
You’re even more glad,
More grateful and proud
Just to call him your dad!
