Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far. Let our bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.
Happy Mother’s Day Dearest Yoga Students,Whether you are a mother, grandmother, son or daughter – we all have something wonderful to celebrate today; unconditional love. Think about that term for a minute. The Wikipedia definition is: Unconditional Love is a term that means to love someone regardless of one’s actions or beliefs. Unconditional love separates the individual from her or his behaviors. The individual is loved unconditionally as a “perfect” child of the Higher Power.Revel in what it feels like to be loved without conditions, without judgement with pure loving kindness for who you are. Focus on the gratitude you have for all the mothers in your life past and present; your birth mother, a friend, a sister, a diety, a mentor …and then recycle all the love you have been given as an offering to the universe. Meditate on the amazing creation of life and the cycles that continue on and on and on.
