A Very Special Mother’s Day Message!

(These insights were inspired by the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.)

Our Moms not only brought us into the world, their continuous efforts to act as the “glue” of the family actually offers deep insights into the laws of the universe!

So let us elevate our hearts and minds above our terrestrial norms for a moment and explore this possibility.

This unifying “Mom-glue” is unconditional Love.

A Mom’s love represents the innermost form of beauty and harmony itself, which springs forth from God’s unifying and divine pattern of perfect order (to unify single things universally, and the universe singularly). This loving principle of harmony and beauty perfectly integrates and preserves all things in the created universe.

In fact, a Mom’s love displays the laws of the universe operating on three distinct levels of reality because there can be no true order without harmony of things, concord of minds and love in the soul:

1) Harmony alone conjoins the entities of nature into a unified universe of profound complexity and sustains the entire world and all its processes.

2) On a higher level, concord alone conjoins minds and sustains family and society.

3) At the highest (and deepest) levels, true love unites souls and forms a heavenly kingdom.

The Moms of the world teach us that sharing happiness, delight and joy through togetherness constitute the innermost operations of the created universe!

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
