Celebrate the Gift of Life on Mother’s Day

Who else on earth is able to bring forth new life? Who else on earth knows the joys and difficulties of a new life forming within their own? Who else, but a mother?

On this Mother’s Day I want to share with you a passage from The Rumi CollectionSomething about it just speaks of the immense mystery and beauty of the formation of human life.

The Embryo

When the time comes for the embryo
to receive the spirit of life,
at that time the sun begins to help.
This embryo is brought into movement,
for the sun quickens it with spirit.
From the other stars this embryo received only an impression,
until the sun shone upon it.
How did it become connected
with the shining sun
in the womb?
By ways hidden from our senses:
the way whereby gold is nourished,
the way a common stone becomes a garnet
and the ruby red,
the way fruit is ripened,
and the way courage comes
to one distraught
with fear.

Today we honor the divine power of the female form.
