As to your question, here are a few random reflections:
1) Does your experience come from your beliefs, or do your beliefs come from your experiences? If it is the former (as I find it to be most of the time for myself, upon deeper reflection), it stands to reason that if I rewire my beliefs, my experiences will change.
2) What are some helpful beliefs to plant? This is a matter of personal reflection, but some that rise up for me are:
i) I have time
ii) I have help
iii) I have love to give and receive
iv) (most important) I am free
3) Rumi says children are not of us, they are through us. Vivekananda also reflects on mother's love in his Karma Yoga essays and warns us to be careful of confusing attachment with love. An excerpt:
4) A famous Buddhist teacher whose son passed away was in tears at the funeral. He was asked why, after a lifetime of learning and teaching detachment, he was still in tears? He replied, "Yes, I know the teaching, but sometimes, it is hard."
