“A mother’s affection cannot be weaned from her child, because the mother-love includes purity and constancy, both of which are immortal. Therefore maternal affection lives on under whatever difficulties.” (Science and Health, page 60)
In the human sense, a mother’s love may appear to come and go, to be variable depending on personality traits, experiences, tendencies. A mother may not be doting and consistent in pouring love out on a child. But a mother’s love still remains in spite of behavioral reactions and responses and separations, because there is that bond that expresses that oneness with the child, the ideal that comes of God, the true Mother of all.
Let’s recognize that true Mother-love, and see its evidence everywhere. Our Mother, God, is always consistently loving, always knowing the whereabouts of Her child (physically as well as in thought), understanding the child’s needs, whether that child be a little one or a mother herself. The protecting affection of divine Motherhood has no bounds, no limits, no distance or separation. It does not lose strength as a child grows to adulthood, passes through experiences, or misbehaves.
We are always being mothered by divine Love. Our children and our parents are receiving that same tenderness and wisdom, that unbreakable devotion, that pure unconditional loving care always, just as we are receiving it. So we are all brothers and sisters, loved equally by a Mother with boundless affection to give, and we are safe in that perfect, unifying, satisfying embrace.
