“Think Only of What Your Mother Yearned to Be”


Artwork by John Diamond, M.D.


Vivekananda taught to not concentrate on the mother but on that which animates her.

From the root ANE, breath – that which animates – is derived the Latin anima, the Soul.

Think only of your mother’s Soul – for Who she always yearned to be.

And forgive all else. Think of Latin donum, gift. From which comes our pardon: to forgive is to give the gift of love from your Soul to hers.

May you be so animated to her.
