I have always maintained that the true reality of Life proceeds from Love. I study Life, and in every place I have ever been, regardless of race, religion, or political situation, at the core of every person is the same Love that resides within me.
Physical birth in this plane is not always an easy experience, but at the moment the new life is expressed, pain and discomfort suddenly evaporate and are replaced with Love and Bliss. As the infant is placed into it's Mother's arms, Love is manifest in the gaze from Mother to child. This moment is absolutely pure, and it is from this moment that each of us proceeds.
Life we measure in years, but really, life should be measured by Experience. Every experience we encounter is another layer placed upon the bedrock of Love that is our center. Unfortunately, for many of us, each experience moves us away from that center until we can no longer recognize it. A journey within, stripping away the layers of experience, will take each of us back to that one reality.
There is only one person on this earth who remembers the moment of my birth, and that person is my Mother. Sixty years later, whenever I am in her presence, I am once more enveloped with the Loving Gaze that captured me then. All of my earthly experience is stripped away and the essence that is me is reduced to it's original state. In Love are Truth and Honesty in their purest forms. In Love is exposure and revelation. You could never hide from your Mother, could you? And why should you? Though your Mother may be disappointed by some of your actions, she could never love you less than she did when you were first expressed into life.
The Love expressed by Mother to Child is but the strongest echo available to each of us in this life of the true reality of Love that is manifest in Spirit. It is the place from which this life proceeds and to where it will return. It is the one thing that every person ever born into earthy life shares in equal measure, the basis of all Life. Journey within, find your center, uncover your Love and allow it expression.
