As we honor and celebrate the mothers of the world this weekend, let’s remember to celebrate the Divine Mother as well. She is our true mother. She is the Mother God. Without her feminine energy and her will, we could not be here.
We know the importance of balancing our masculine and feminine energies. As spiritual beings, we are created from both Divine Male and Divine Female energy just as we are created by our fathers and mothers as humans. On Father’s Day, let’s honor God, the Divine Father. On Mother’s Day, let’s honor the Goddess, the Divine Mother, in conjunction with our earthly mothers. They are all important to us.
The Divine Mother
I am a big fan of Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda for many reasons. All those reasons are connected to his openness about his arrogance, entitlement, and other dense emotions to be healed. The death of Yogananda’s mother when he was a teenager was devastating to him and he grieved for many years. One day while grieving her loss, he heard the voice of the Divine Mother speak loudly and clearly to him. She reminded Yogananda that she was his true mother and that she had always, and would always, be with him. He was never alone.
Yogananda had been teaching others to love and trust the Divine Mother for years. However, he had not fully embraced that truth until the moment he let her love in completely. That brief message dissolved his grief and changed his life. He never forgot his earthly mother but he allowed the Goddess, the Divine Mother, into Her rightful place.
Last week I was looking for packing tape in one of the large box stores. A father came up beside me in the aisle with his two sons in his shopping cart. The oldest boy, probably six years old, immediately asked me if I knew about the Mother God. He was extremely excited and animated. I was both delighted and amazed.
He went on for almost five minutes about the Mother God and how she loved us and would take care of us. He barely took a breath as he shared Bible stories he was learning at his church. I looked at his father who simply shrugged his shoulders and said, “I hope it lasts.” Me, too!
Celebrating Mothers’ Day
On May 14th of this year, we honor and celebrate our mothers for bringing us into this life. On Mother’s Day, we collectively remember the wonderful women who have given us the time, love, and energy. Whether these women are our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, or others, we cherish them for who they are to us.
In addition to honoring the important women in our lives, let’s all take the time to remember and celebrate the Goddess, too. She is the Divine Mother, our Mother God. She is the heart of our feminine energy and power. Her love is eternal and unconditional. She has always, and will always, stand with us, support us, and encourage us to be all that we can.
Remember the young boy I met in the store and his enthusiasm for the Mother God. Be both grateful and excited about her presence and rejoice.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful and beloved mothers on this planet. Namaste.
