Sometimes I think of life as my Mommy.
She places an array of dishes before me each moment. I don’t like them all, and sometimes none of them. I throw a tantrum and feel upset. But you know the saying, “Mommy knows best.” Yeah! My life knows what’s best for me – to grow to become one.
One with whom? With Her – my life, each moment in love.
Sometimes I chase illusions and desires with great passion. Life watches me and wishes I would not get lost. She tries to make me still, to look at Her, but my mind has taken over. I am whirling in a sea of duality. In due course, my heart breaks. I cry.
My life comes running to me. She holds me in the embrace of love. She pours the potion of time upon my wounds, breath by breath; and she heals me.
“I love you, darling.” Her tender words resound in my heart.
“Be well, smile each moment. I am with you.”
“Who are you?” I ask Her as She enters me yet again – anew with each breath.
Each moment She comes to me as a new breath of love and nourishes me inside-out.
Even if she leaves me as an out-breath, She is close, just a breath away.
She smiles and embraces me yet again.
Slowly I am learning to do the same to Her, my life – sweet, pure love.
And you, beloved friend, how do you think of your life?
