A Mother's Gift

By Myriam Maytorena, M.Ed.

"A child's world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood." --Rachel Carson

It is amazing how the wondering open way of perceiving the world, as a child, is lost to us as we grow older. I think that is perhaps one of the major reasons that children are a blessing. They awaken the mother to see the world with young eyes that which we forgot we once could see.

This Mother's Day many are sending notes, gifts and cards to Mom. Moms are a blessing to our world. They birth, nurture, and teach our children. They enable us as a species to survive. However, the greatest gift that every mother gives us with each birth is the opportunity to see the world again with new eyes.

We do not have to loose the vision of our inner child. We just have to hang around more mothers and their children and we will be renewed. Every time we see a Mother interacting with unconditional love and awe at the mystery of her child's realization of the world, we can have our own eyes cleared a little more.

You want to get back your childhood vision and there are no kids in the neighborhood or in your family. Watch the Teletubbies on TV or the wonderful programs that have children participating in exploring their world. Sesame Street is a wonderful example of how to explore the world with a child's eyes. Just cause your bones ache and you need bifocals does not mean that you cannot recapture the bliss of childlike recognition of something new and wonderful in your world.

This weekend, even though you may be separated from your mother, you can affirm the wonderful gift she gave you to see the world for the first time. Travel through your mind to those moments when the two of you explored all things bright and beautiful and you will feel the wondrous sense of exploration and trust that only a mother's guidance and love can give us.

In the Bible, it is written that one cannot enter the kingdom of heaven unless one sees with the eyes of a child. Today you can enter the kingdom of heaven on earth by focusing with wonder and delight all the beauty in our world. Turn off the news, delete the e-mails with negative energy, and instead focus on beauty, delight, love, and exploring something with child-like simplicity that you have never looked at before (for some that might be self). Today: Open your eyes to the bliss of seeing as a child.

Love and Light
