For more than a year now we have been having online meditations led by monks of Self Realisation Fellowship and Yogoda Satsanga Society of India. These have been God sent during this period of social distancing and lockdowns, when group meditations were suspended.
My guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, has written so much about God as Divine Mother; and has also composed some beautiful chants around God as Divine Mother.
During last Sunday morning meditation we were chanting: Mother I give you my soul call, you can’t remain hidden anymore…and my thoughts went to my mother and I started to cry. I thought if our mother was such pure love, how loving Divine Mother would be. How loving God would be. Guruji has said that if we could see God once, all of us would leave this world and go to Him 😊💖
We have been so blessed to have had parents like ours. They were poles apart and yet lived lovingly together for 71 years! The only thing they had in common was — Goodness and immense love for their children. And they loved my wife, their daughter in law, equally or more.
Our parents represented God so beautifully: Our father as Heavenly Father — Wisdom; Our mother as Divine Mother — pure Love.
It saddens me no end when I hear of children, who are deprived of this divine parental love and care; which is their birthright. And the worst is to hear so much of child abuse. I hope and pray that no child is ever deprived of the love of his parents. And that we learn to love all children as our own.
God is Love and Love is all there is.
Stay safe. Stay loved. Keep loving 💖💖
