My grandson took this awesome video (view at end of post) of a spring nest of birdlings waiting to be fed. That is, until they aren’t waiting at all! They can’t see and they really don’t care if it is mom or dad or my grandson – whoever is there, FEED ME! In that moment, worm in beak or in hand, everyone is a needed caregiver, everyone is a mom!
As you walk through your day, who (or what) is calling out for mother-love? This is the compassionate, unhesitating care that meets the need without considering whether you are able, or they are worthy. Are you prepared to share from your deep well of spiritual abundance, placed in your heart by the loving Parent of us all? Placed there by the Creator to nurture you – and for you to nurture others.
When you are consciously aware that you already embody fully all the spiritual qualities of good, such as intelligence, kindness, generosity and courage, to respond to any cry for help then you will also have tangibly what is necessary, right at hand. This is inherent, always-right mother-love – not gender specific – from anyone and for everyone…for good.
Here is something to think about: every problem on the planet is pretty much a relationship problem! Is our relationship with our neighbor – at work, in the community or church – appreciating, valuing and loving like a mother?
The birdlings know that whoever cares for them is their mother. Let’s all be the best moms and care for every neighbor we have!
“…a mother’s love behind words has no language; it may give no material token, but lives steadily on, through time and circumstance, as part and paramount portion of her being.” – Mary Baker Eddy
