There are two things that come to mind when I think of mothers: unconditional love and Mother Nature. There is so much love that goes into raising a child. This love takes shape in the way of sacrifice, attention, allowing and wonder.
A friend of mine once said to me, "I am afraid to have children because you really don't know what you are going to get." That's so true! A big part of unconditional love is accepting the soul that has been brought forth to you and fostering their light. The biggest beauty in humanity is our uniqueness. Each soul, brought through by a mother and Mother Nature, is a very unique spark of divinity to love and behold.
A mother has the daunting task of caring for her child while the child is helpless and completely dependent on her. The mother is shaping that care based on the character and expression of the child, each shaping each other. It is my belief that the moment this union is made an influence and a wonder starts to take place. There is so much beauty in watching love and light being expressed through a new life. There is an equal beauty to the new life being in a state of wonder and drinking up the absolute love of the mother. In this union we learn the law and value of reciprocity.
There is an incredible amount of selflessness that goes into birthing and raising a child. I know my parents chose to put in a tremendous amount of work and sacrifice in order for me to be able to do what I do today. There are many times a mother sets aside her comfort for the moment to secure a better future for her child. Mothering is also a call to create a future and make steps for our future generations.
On Mother's Day we celebrate the sacrifice a mother makes to raise a child and we celebrate uniqueness. We celebrate unconditional love and we celebrate creation. We seek out the soul expression in one another and like a mother to her child, we foster that light. We fully accept that we are all very unique in how we express ourselves. We celebrate what it takes to birth a new life. We celebrate the organic nature of creation and the power of Mother Nature. We celebrate evolution and we celebrate the light. Today Mom, we celebrate you.
