I want to share with you a wonderful experience, which showed me how important it is to apply Ontological Education in my life:
One evening, I brought home a bag of jars of pickles prepared by my mother. When I entered the kitchen, something in me told me to put the bag in the pantry, because there was a risk that my curious cat would overturn the bag. Of course, I didn’t listen to my intuition and left it on the table.
The next day, while sitting and reading with my son (10 years old), I heard a loud noise in the kitchen. I realized what had happened and we both ran there.
The cat jumped out of the shards on a chair and began to clean its paws with vinegar. As I approached her to see if she was hurt, I heard my son,
“Mommy! Please don’t beat her! ”
I turned to him and said,
“Of course I won’t beat her, she is not to blame!
It’s my fault! I knew this could happen and I was too lazy to put the bag in the pantry! ”
We began to gather the shards when I heard my son saying:
“Mom, if you hadn’t watched those shows and read those things (Connie’s materials and her book) what would you have done to the cat?”
Then I understood his perplexity and I answered him:
“You’re right, if I didn’t know what I know now, I would have made the cat a poster on the door”…
Indeed, Ontological Education changes your life!
And not just my life, but everyone around me!
