Just stop there for a second.
If you don't add the next bit then you are beautifully in the zone of evolving consciousness. What's wrong with staying there for a little while?
Are you ever meant to delve into the egoic ruminations of other people, especially people you have a long history with? Eckhart says these 'long history' relationships, like parents and partners, are essentially booby-trapped (paraphrasing) because of the unresolved emotion and piles and piles of mental expectations followed by judgments.
I have come to realise that my parents are to be left as they are, moreso than any other person in my life situation. That includes not trying to explain or share in any way what is happening for me. They can observe but I don't need to add commentary. Chances are, any explanation I give would, especially in the early stages of awakening, be coming from a hopeful place of "if only they could be freed from suffering too."
