Mothers & Mothering

“The Tide and the Pulse”

“There is a tide in the affairs of men,” Shakespeare proclaimed. Not a force or power, or a direction, but a tide.

A tide: ebb and flow, ebb and flow. Movement, always movement; ever changing yet ever recurring. Always advancing through time—to where? To where? Back and forth, round and round, and on and on.

There are so many procedures and techniques, systems and modalities, all proclaiming themselves as therapy.

This is Romain Rolland’s praise, in admiration, of Ramakrishna:

The Seraphic Master had spent his whole life at the feet of the Divine Beloved, the Mother – the Living God. He had been dedicated to Her from infancy; before he had attained self-consciousness he had the consciousness that he loved Her.

“You Are As My Mother”

You are as my mother 
aspired to be: 
when I look in your eyes 
– it’s her love I see. 

This is reprised (“haiku’d”) as

You are as my mother 
– it’s her love I see. 

Which can be further abbreviated to

You are 
– I see. 

And the “you” is anyone, everyone, anything, everything.

“Lafcadio Hearn (1850-1904)”

At the end of his tragically short life (1850-1904), Lafcadio Hearn, “Japan’s Greatest Interpreter,” wrote this in his Reverie.* Especially poignant as he had been separated from his mother since he was two:

This does not mean that our mothers need to change but only our inner image of her.
