If you ask me what is Love?
I would say that Love is Mother.
Mother knows sacrifice.
Mother knows selflessness.
Mother knows unconditional.
Our mothers carried us in her womb for nine months. We were formed out of her flesh and blood. So within us all, our mother is alive.
For many of us our mothers were far from perfect. Perhaps they were emotionally unavailable. Or were even abusive. Or just weren’t there.
It’s true. Things happened.
However, let’s remember that she gave us the greatest gift of all – life itself.
This is huge!
Your mother may not be a perfect human being. She too has fears, wounds and insecurities, just like you. Sometimes as children it’s easy to forget.
Your mother is also on her own journey with her own lessons she needs to work through in this lifetime.
Remember, that your ultimate mother is Life itself. Life is the true source of your nourishment. Your mother was simply the vehicle in human form to bring you forward into this life. She is the vessel.
Take time to acknowledge and connect with the Great Mother. SHE will bless, nourish, and love you. You will find her alive inside your heart. You will find her everywhere if you are open.
Whether you are a man or woman. We are all mothers. Whether we have children or not.
Honor the mother within yourself. The part of yourself that is pure love, nurturing and compassionate. This is your inner mother.
This week, I invite you to mother yourself. Whether you have a child, or not, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman. Take a moment today and bring love and compassion to yourself as a mother would.
This week simply give your mother the gift of seeing who she really is regardless of how she might be.
Give her the gift of your love whether you see her physically or not.
Give her the gift of letting her know what you appreciate about her and how much she means to you.
So this week let’s tell our mothers and all mothers around the world:
Thank you for all you do each day that goes unseen and unappreciated.
Thank you for all the care and concern you have for me that I am not even aware of.
Thank you for all the encouragement you gave me when I was down.
Thank you for believing in me when no one did and not thinking I was crazy.
Thank you for forgiving me time and time again.
Thank you for giving me life. This was the greatest gift of all.
And, thank you Mother Earth for showering us with such unconditional love each day.
Mother, I love you.
