This comment was by Nico van Haastrecht in reference to the post – Worried About Becoming a Father? You Should Be.
As a father of three, whom already have moved on in there own lives, I must say that for me it was hard to prepare myself from reading books as when our first child was born I was blessed by the miraculous event of birth which was beyond that what any book had provided me with that far.
It gave me a feeling of being connected with a grander whole, the magic of what life has on offer and that it was up to me to accept this or to go int the doing and trying to be a good father. What I found is that being a father for my children gave me the opportunity to learn and share a part of my life that is so special, while being an ordinary thing in a human’s life.
It gave me the opportunity to learn from my inner most what being a father actually is, far from how I was told that fatherhood should be. It is a way of being with my children that holds them as equals, as wise as I am although in the beginning limited in their physical expression the are abundantly sharing their love. An what I had to do is keep them in that same love, and support them into finding their way in our complex society, nurturing their being as that something special they have on offer for all of humanity.
