We have been looking at The Main Central publications that offer great insight into the contents of Text 2.
Issue Number 58, Fall, 2007 continues a series of articles about the stages of life in a human being from page 42 of Text 2, authored by Iole Lebensztajn.
Today we will continue with that series:
Stages of Life in a Human Being (Continued)
LUNG – 9-10 YEARS OLD – Page 42, Text 2
Balance Between Inward and Outward…
“Lung Function Energy is obviously related to the breathing process and how to inhale (to go inside) and exhale (to go outside) in harmony. From 9-10 years old, children will be invited to realize how and when to live in their inner world, opening the door to live fantasy, to walk to the outer world, to also live reality. This is the time to learn how to be with myself and how to be with others at each moment and circumstance, defining one more step to individualization and, simultaneously, socialization.
Lung Function Energy is a Surface Flow. The child (pre-adolescent) is coming to the surface to look at the world “face to face”. At the same time, the division between the world and myself (the other and myself) is becoming each time clearer. The impulse to separate myself from what is not myself is very strong: i.e., the motivation to show clearly who I am (Aries) is really passionate. Now I want to distinguish myself from my parents. I don’t want to be like them. I want to find my style, what I like, my way to see the world, to demarcate my position, my space…my room. This is just the beginning of a process that will have its apex in terms of vigor between 18-24 years old (Heart Function Energy), and its complete awareness between 57-64 years old (Diaphragm Function Energy). This is the path to achieve authenticity (inner truth), which involves all Chest Flows.
Children in this phase want to do things by themselves without asking for help or listening to others’ opinions. They want to listen to themselves, to be their own reference (self-affirmation). They look for new challenges, conquests and stimuli. This is the way for them to get to know their limitations, possibilities and options. However, facing their inexperience and innocence, they are insecure about their ability to deal with life.”
