To all the beautiful mothers,
A tribute to the Divine Mother in all of us,
On this auspicious Mother's Day!
In the morning, Mother Nature is quiet,
The air is fragrant, the birds are singing,
Our inner nature too, is waiting for our self-love.
We recognize that She has been a silent worker,
Taking care of us all night, so that we could wake up
This morning in good health and thank Her.
Mother has worked Her healing during the night.
We recognize Mother for the good work,
That She has done.
We smile as we breathe deep long breaths of love,
We smile to the morning, to the chirping birds,
To the golden aura of the sun, to our beloved Mother Divine.
Feeling assured we are safe and secured in Her hands.
Deep inside She speaks to us, “Look up, look around;
The whole universe is smiling with us!!”
We stretch, breathe, and meditate,
To allow the whole universe to fill us with Her pure energy,
Affirming that only good lies before us.
All is well in our life,
We are healthy,
In sync with Her grace and love within.
We affirm and reaffirm in our heart and mind the truth,
That the Mother of the universe loves us beyond our imagination.
We are Her blessed children, ever taken care by the Mother.
What is there to be afraid of?
We take care of a little baby; it feels absolutely secure and happy.
We have seen the smile of a baby.
That smile is the universe manifesting its assurance to us.
Let the baby in us give that smile to the universe,
To our Divine Mother, with deepest gratitude and love.
Fear will run away from our powerful protector,
Through our faith in our Mother, the Universe.
Our fear will dissolve in Her love.
When we are struck with difficult times, complaining doesn’t help.
If anything appears to be insurmountable then
We remember that with the grace of the Divine Mother,
We can surmount any problem of life,
That every such storm leaves us stronger than before,
Richer in experience.
We rise through communing with the Divine Mother.
She is taking care of us.
She loves us as no one in this world.
We bask in the light of the Mother Divine
“No obstacle is greater than your love for me!
I am ever protected in your safest lap,
I have none but you as my sole refuge,
I am a happy child of my blissful Mother”.
What is there in this Universe
Of infinite beauty that is not
The feminine expression of infinite creativity?
We keep our eyes on the grass carpet of the mother earth,
And we will find the most pristine flowers growing there,
Smiling, though most uncared for,
Maybe most unnoticed,
Yet they keep singing and keep dancing,
As the breeze of Mother’s love plays with them!
Have we seen any teacher better than Mother Nature?
Nature is the best open book of wisdom.
We learn every day how She does so much without doing,
Without rushing to accomplish and
Without laying any credit for Her incredible creativity.
She teaches us with so much patience from within and without!
We all run from one teacher to another,
But Mother Nature really teaches us all that we need to know
In order to lead a peaceful and happy life.
We just need to be quiet, be still,
Be present in her presence,
And all becomes clear.
The loving Mother sings in our hearts,
For we are her dear children!
Mother Nature is our best teacher, She teaches us to pause.
All of Mother Nature pauses.
Just watch the ocean. The waves come and go.
In between each wave is a pause.
We watch our breath.
We inhale we pause;
We exhale we pause.
Even the tiger first pauses
And waits for
The precise moment to jump.
If we are unaware of the flow of Mother Nature,
If we live outside of Her Divine rhythm,
We fail to open ourselves to Her ability
To create harmony in this world.
Without the power of pause, we cannot help
But inadvertently create misery for others and our selves.
Each and every one of us can take action to help ease
The excessive misuse of each of the Nature’s abundant gifts.
Most of us lack respect and love for Mother’s gifts.
We all must rejoice whenever we are able to help
Our environment in small little ways in our daily life
Through our awareness of Her boundless gifts.
Trust the Mother, She takes care!
Mother wants Her children to be
Always happy and healthy.
For we see with awe the seamless texture
Of Her infinite creativity that is the universe!
We see flaws in our efforts,
But Her effortless grace is flawless.
We see our limitations but
Her love is limitless.
And so we sing!
“Oh! Mother of the Universe,
Here is your child eternally grateful to you,
Eternally in love with you, eternally longing
To be in your divine lap.
Fill me my Mother to the brim,
This little pitcher, your priceless gift
The only instrument that can create
The miracle of man transforming into god.
Yes, my Blissful Mother, I have none
But you as my sole refuge,
I am your child, you are my Mother,
Make me your instrument, your flute
So that you can sing the music of love
Harmony and peace for this world
Which is your manifested divine Self.
Blessed I am Blessed I am Blessed I am.”
