When we started out with our unschooling journey, we felt a little like knights in shining armor freeing ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles. Hence the name of the blog.

Belonging...

'Josha' wrote this recently on an online group i belong to. It rings true for me and so i wanted to share it here:

"Wanting to "belong" is when we get into trouble. The wanting is the beginning
of control and distortion and inauthenticity. This wanting comes from our
programming that we don't belong. In order for us to internalize that
concept we have to be told somewhere along the way that because of what we
say or what we do or how we be we don't belong. The truth is we already
belong. Our very presence dictates it so. We belong in this world, here we
are. We already belong and by knowing this deeply within, by feeling it
deeply our communication is authentic and real and fearless. By feeling this
deeply we love ourselves and we are free to love everyone else."
