WHEN mother welcomed us back in the house after a long day outside at play, we knew there would be caring and love waiting for us within.
There would be food, a soothing bath and a bedtime story. Clean pajamas and sheets were as much Mother’s rule as her unconditional love.
But if correspondence and analogy are the rule that points to spiritual knowledge, how does the universe work in the way of loving Mothers?
Nature knows how to care for her human children, but perhaps in these modern, distracting times modern humans have strayed too far from their offspring, self-interestedly allowed children to play too long outside.
The awesome Mother nature has always waited patiently for our return home, healing and assuaging the self-created darkness of separation and materialism, assaulting the tender soul.
Is it because we forget that nature and humanity are really One Being, that we lose our way?
In these often dark times of spirit, we may have overlooked the Golden Rule, or resisted helping others, instead of living unselfishly and harmlessly for humanity’s needy and down-trodden.
Disease, poverty, hunger and the rise of environmental blights are, it seems, the inevitable result of our separation from the natural, unified state.
