My Guru, Paramahansa Yogananda, says that: In creating this universe God revealed two aspects: the masculine or fatherly, and feminine or motherly.
If you close your eyes and visualise vast, illimitable space, you become overwhelmed and enthralled – you feel naught but pure wisdom. The hidden, infinite sphere wherein there is no creation, no stars no planets – only pure wisdom – is the Father.
And Nature with her diamond-dazzling stars, the Milky Way, the flowers, birds, clouds, mountains, sky – the countless beauties of creation – is the Divine Mother.
So God is both Father and Mother. Jesus spoke of God as Father. Some saints speak of Him as Mother. In His transcendental aspect, God is neither Father nor Mother; but when we think of Him in terms of human relationship, He may become for us either Father or Mother. God is both – infinite wisdom and infinite feeling. He gave His wisdom the form of a father and His feeling the form of a mother.
(I have seen this to be so true in case of our parents. Father as wisdom and reason (loving reason😊❤️) and mother as pure feeling; just 💕)
On this Father’s Day let us affirm our love and loyalty to the Heavenly Father. While the human father’s love is not always unconditional, still it is guided by wisdom, regard for law, and the will to protect others. Guruji says; The Divine Father of wisdom, law and protection, who is represented in all good human fathers, we honour today.
As an instrument of Divine Being, the father plays his greatest creative role when he implants in his children thoughts that will lead to God-realisation. Fathers should become good role models for their children.
God is Love. And Love is all there is. It takes on the colour of consciousness we bring to it. It can be the love of the spouse, a friend, a sibling, mother or father….
I hope and pray
That all fathers
Strive to create,
To bring in
The mother’s love
In their hearts,
Their wisdom and the law.
Happy Fathers Day 😊❤️
