All Mothers Day—for mothers and others—the truth of interconnection
Happy ALL MOTHERS DAY, you mothers and others.
This is a good day to recognize the truth of Tibetan Buddhism: that every being was at one time my own mother...your own mother. Hey! that means you were mine and I was yours.
Taking it into present time....you are mine and I am yours. We nurture, cultivate, and tend each other...mother each other...support, sustain one another.
For me, Mother's Day renamed as All Mother's Day becomes inclusive and a time to become interconnected, rather than sealed off in our nuclear units reading stord-bought cards.
We held an All Mother's Day celebration in our family one year and the children loved the idea that they were mother's, too. They made signs, created a show and passed our tickets, picked flowers.
Men and women...women in all relationships to children and others...all of us can be mothers today, on All Mothers Day!
