Who is the Divine Mother?
One who is…Anandmayi…karunamayi…premamayi…
One who is full of bliss, love and compassion…
In sansaar, a woman gives birth and by default becomes a mother to her children. Yet many a times she remains a biological mother alone. She does her duties of upbringing her children and till her last breath (in many cases ) keeps doing a lot of things for her children. Does all this make her a mother? The divine mother?
When I close my eyes and say “MA” the divine light of a divine woman who cannot ever hurt me or make me cry is visible. She is ready to fight for me, protect me, guard me…She loves me, cares for me and she has so much compassion and also she is so full of joy…
How can this mother be there in true form amongst us?
Why then are we living our life with so many expectations from our mother? She is the one who we are tied with due to karma and so were born of her in this body. Whatever karmic accounts need to be settled with her will come up in the course of this life and we just need to go on accepting or fulfilling those, not getting fanatic or emotional about the person. We must have gratitude to her for loaning her womb for us to take this human form.
In actuality we never died and were never born! We were always here…
The Divine Mother (Shakti) was always there and will always be there. She is within us waiting to be called.
We spend our entire life span hoping, expecting and wanting the divine qualities from our biological mother. It is not possible…
Unconditional love is rare. One who is self realised and knows, one who has awakened the mother within will love everyone unconditionally.
Here again I would mention that the gender does not play a role at all. The Shakti has to be awakened and that is it…period.
Having taken the body of a male or a female has nothing to do with the qualities of a mother. One who is a male in this life and has awakened the shakti (mother) will have compassion, love and joy for all around him.
Because a woman takes the effort of bearing a child in her womb for 9 months and then bears the pain of delivery of the child, she was accorded the highest role of a mother. This does not automatically or by default bring out the inner Shakti within her and so she remains a biological mother doing her duties righteously thinking all the while that she is the “Mother”.
She was the medium to have brought forth a life form. The Scriptures says that a mother who gives birth is always connected to the child in an etheric bond. It is true but the bond is lost in the games of sansaar and the ahamkar takes supreme and the divinity of being a mother is completely lost.
“I gave birth, I brought you up, I fed you, I took care of you, I taught you lessons, I , I , I….”
Can a “Mother” every feel or say that? It is not possible.
All the above terminologies exist only in the karmic accounts. The pure love and divinity is experienced when the divinity within us awakens. We receive it from the Masters as they have awakened the Shakti within them. How else could so much unconditional love flow from them?
The whole purpose of expressing on “Mother” is because if we speak on the general level, we all have a mother. She is the one who gave birth to us.
Depending on the karmic give and take, relationship developed. Yet either we got too attached to our mother or expected a lot from her or something or the other, again depending on our karmic requirements. This might have given us temporary happiness, sorrow etc. If at all these times we were in remembrance that the mother from whom we are associating so much is just as temporary as we ourselves then we would have been saved from a lot of turmoil.
This body is temporary – so all relationships (even that of a mother) is temporary. So in this temporary body, with temporary relationships in this temporary world that we have made around us, why do we need to feel that hurt and emotions are permanent? How can anything hurt or anyone hurt something that is temporary?
Never take the hurt within, never take the emotion too deep, coz there hidden within each one of us is our true Mother awaiting for our call “Ma, please come, Ma please awaken, Ma please be there for me, Ma, help me guide me and love me forever…”
Where are we lost? In this temporary world which can just disappear any moment? In the temporary relationships that never last forever?
Instead let us get deeply lost within our self and become the small child who is calling out to his mother with all his heart and emotion. A child who is truly looking for his lost mother is seeking her in desperation.
Call out to her, call out to the “Mother”- she is right there within…waiting…with abundance of love and compassion.
MA – JAAGO MA – Please listen, please hear my call and come to me…
