“Exquisite” best describes the sensory explosions I experienced on my walk through Mother today. Among other places, I frequent her trails along the James River in Central Virginia. Today’s walk wasn’t long but it was filled with the pleasures of sight, sound, color, fragrance, texture, and more. Her endless shades of green filled my eyes. Her gnarly vines reminded me of the beauty of life’s twists and turns. Flying from branch to branch, Mother’s cardinals chirped to the delight of my ears. Her squirrels scurried here and there. Her deep purple flowers with bright yellow pistols brightened my thoughts and feelings. The damp forest floor of her body delighted my sense of smell. She is exquisite, isn’t she?
Paroxysms of joy-filled every cell in my body from head to toe. I was reminded that life as a soul incarnate on Earth is a treat. Mother is always giving to us. On days like these, I feel like a delighted child with eyes opening for the first time to the wonders of human existence. As we celebrate mothers, I am reminded that we actually have several mothers:
- A human mother through which we are born into form
- A primal mother, Planet Earth that provides for all our needs (when we think of it)
- Sofia, the feminine archetype, mother of the Universe
My trips through Mother Earth’s woods, along her waterways, and through her countrysides, valleys, and mountains inspire me to express love and gratitude to all my mothers.
As an urban dweller, I visit Mother Earth’s natural treasures for respite from the hustle and bustle of human doing-ness. I love communing with her. I realize that when I bring my open heart to her, she shares her wisdom with me. Today I asked her: What can I do to express my love and gratitude for you?
First, I heard her say, “Write stories about your experiences with me so others might follow in your footsteps to revel in my wonders. I welcome the presence of humans. I only want you to enjoy me!”
She continued, “Encourage other humans to remember that WE are one being from the same singular origin, a Creator choosing to have experiences in physical form. I’m sorry that some people have forgotten our inherent union. However, when the memory of our union is restored in human self-awareness, your gratitude will spread throughout my entire form, restoring balance in all my systems. Then, WE shall all thrive together and WE will be so happy!”
“Remind humans to honor their own bodies in all their variations, your love of self will emanate energies that will nourish all my systems. That way, I can best fulfill my purpose and mission to nurture and support all life with all my abundance.”
A father’s prayer for celebrating all our mothers!
