We often hear that there is no love like a mother’s love. From the mortal perspective, this seems like reality; however, in the sense of divinity, it couldn’t be further from the truth. In our society, it is believed that the role of parents is to instruct their children. This is a daunting task for the majority of parents because they only seek to teach their children to conform to a standard established for them by someone else.
ESPECIALLY, in the religious context, instruction is anti-love. Love seeks to understand, and accept what it comes to understand. This is why perfect love casts out all fear. Where there is a lack of understanding, fear is common. What mortals do is try to change everyone and everything to fit their ideal rather than seek to understand what is. Mortals do it with their children, with nature, and even with their concepts of God.
This is why science is so essential in consciousness. Science is just knowledge, and it comes by observation. What love does is pursues connection despite differences. Love doesn’t identify discomfort and seek to eliminate it. No! Love acknowledges discomfort, and studies it to find out how it is producing healing- healing for self, and healing for the world.
The general idea of motherly love is of correction based on a moral compass, despite the soul of the child. Love is not a map. Love is a compass. Its intent is not to lead you anywhere, but to reveal to you where you are. Every mother is perfect according to her level of understanding herself. They just haven’t been loved themselves to be able to actually self-identify, so they often love from the ego, disconnected from their own souls. The divine mother is all about nurturing the true soul of her children, WITHOUT JUDGMENT. To the divine mother, the child truly can do no wrong, because the divine mother loves unconditionally, no matter what.
Because mothers have generally not learned that unconditional love for themselves, they generally project their understanding of love upon their own children. Women many have it more difficult in achieving self-mastery in our culture because they have been conditioned to the idea that to receive love they have to meet this exceptional standard set by men. From this indoctrination, they tend to teach their sons to perpetuate patriarchy and misogyny, and teach their daughters to meet the standard to “deserve” love.
As we ascend towards restoration and healing, children have to be given the freedom to be. Not to become, or to do, but just to be; and evolve as their souls naturally mature within the liberty of their own divinity. Without observation in patience, we will never achieve this level of love. We will never achieve perfect love of self because, instead of observing ourselves sans judgment to be restored to our own souls, we keep attempting to fit our divinity into these moral standards that just weren’t intended for us as sentient beings.
So, the greatest love is self-acceptance. Then that self-acceptance is extended unto all others. Especially in those social media consumed generation, we have become quick to cut people off in fear, rather than practice the love that leads to understanding and oneness. We have been deceived into accepting the notion that karma is love. Karma is not love though. Karma is fear. It’s a lower vibration of judgment that brings correction by conformity, rather than restoration in transforming. That’s why, in love, we must not be conformed to this world (an external set of standards), but instead be transformed by the renewing of the mind (the divine government within).
That’s love! It’s the love we are to love ourselves with, and the love we are to love our neighbors with as well.
