Once they asked old mudrca: ” how do I know a man has a good heart?”
The wise man replied: ” it’s not about what who says and what makes the
impression, but it’s the feeling, the atmosphere you feel in his presence.
That’s proof. Because no one is able to create an atmosphere that does not
comply with his soul.”
This Mother’s Day weekend let us also honor the women who chose not to have
children, those who wanted but were unable to have children and those who are
trying everything possible and would give anything they have to become a mother.
And let us remember those mothers who have lost a child and live on with broken
hearts. We know the passion for mothering is often expressed in surprising,
unexpected and all kinds of beautiful and loving ways. And we know that
expression of love is just as important, just as powerful and just as essential
as any love that exists.
“One day you will know the many ways in which
you are linked with all that is.
The cells of your body are related to the
movements of stars.
The thoughts that you think project far, far, afield,
affecting lives you cannot see.
Everything you do and everything you think
ripples out to affect all else,
to bless it or to detract from this blessing.”
