As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
I think at the heart of every human is the desire to love and be loved. To love: as we feel a sense of value and purpose. Loved: to feel a sense of wholeness through the very desire to love. We can refer to say - the cycle of love, or reciprocity. But just as humans carry imperfections, so too are our relations, and some simply through the cycle of life: When we loose loved ones, are grief stricken, and feel pain. These loses are certainly felt, especially more when we think / feel memories on special days. I took the time to think about this thought, especially as it was recently Mother's Day. When I also wrote the thought: Children of God.
The beauty of this thought, and Mother's Day celebrations, was the fact that it is also intertwined with the month of May, where there are remembrances and celebrations of Mary, the mother of Jesus. This remembrance is of particular importance, within the presence of our own mothers or not. Mother Mary, Our Lady Mary is able to interject / intercede - in a sense to perfect the brokenness, losses, or even our own need for our mother. As Mary becomes the spiritual mother for all. So really even in the imperfections of our human relations, we can choose to turn in the face of the spirt - and remember that there is a Mother, an all-loving mother, who sacrificed her child. Who bear the scars and wounds. The greatest of mothers - our spiritual mother. We are reminded through brokenness, griefs or pains, we are never really ever alone. The neediness of unconditional love surmounts. It is forever giving, a fountain. A blessed love, that heals hurts through the spiritual motherly touch.
