When the Universal Mother Speaks to Me

When the Universal Mother speaks to me, she speaks through the sky, sun, moon and stars. 
She speaks through the Earth, oceans, rivers, lakes and streams.
And she speaks through the mountains, trees and meadows.
She speaks to me through all her natural creations. They all carry her voice.

All of Nature is her utterance.
Each time I stop my busy mind, my heart overflows with love for her,  like water from a mountain spring, pure and clean.

Without a mother’s love, a child cannot smile and an adult cannot mature.
Mothers are the first to teach love to the lives of the young. 
A mother's unconditional love is the foundation of all love. 
A mother is the gentle, sweet spirit that makes unhappiness and worries disappear.

The world is full of suffering because people do not see the true nature of a mother's love.   
They lack insight into the interconnectedness of all beings and things. 
The all-pervading love of Nature is the inter-beingness that connects through and with all.

The beauty of the Hue River embraces and deeply inspires me. 
The water of the river, running forever, is  like my love for the world and its people.
Though this river may live outside of me, I have a life river inside of me.

Though all beautiful waters impress me,
They are but the semblance of the river inside of me.
The river that impresses me most deeply is the river of life.
It has no beginning and it will have no end.  It is always there.

So many streams have entered it, nourishing and supporting the flow of life.
The river of life is always transforming.
Although its face may change from time to time, its original purpose is always there, providing continuous support to all forms of life to grow and thrive.
It is the stream of my life to be more than alive.

When I allow my life to be with Nature’s vastness,
I touch deeply each life and each thing I encounter.
I walk mindfully along the path of life and understand the need to help others who are but parts of the one, whole being that is inside and outside of me.

There is deep compassion and kind love that runs forever like the continuous flow of rivers.   
My life speaks from the range of its own being through the deep support of the Mother Universe.
