..Women possess a unique magic. As women we are able to call forth life from the other side, and cultivate that life in the quiet space below our hearts. Within our bodies we hold an opening to the divine, a portal that allows souls to enter into this world.
(From “Sacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-Based Change” by Sherri Mitchell, page 121)
Everyone has a biological mother. There is no other way for a soul desiring life in this world to enter but through a mother’s womb. Mothers not only nurture life into being; but they also protect the life that they have brought forth. Swami Rama says there is no finer example of love than how a mother selflessly nurtures, protects and cares for that life. No matter who the mother is, what the conditions are or where in the world she is, a mother, even if flawed, will nurture and protect her young. It is in recognition of this truth that we honor our mothers on Mother’s Day.
