The Invincible Thread


photo by J.A.S.

“When I stopped seeing my mother with the eyes of a child, I saw the woman who helped me give birth to myself.”
Nancy Friday


A mother is the one who sees
ALL of who we are.
While she celebrates the best in us,
she is also there to nurture,
the parts that need improvement.

There is an invisible thread
between mother and child;
defining, shaping, and connecting.
Bending, stretching and moving;
gaining strength and potency
over time.

When we have come upon
heavy and troublesome moments,
and all others have vacated our company,
we return to the invisible thread.

The thread guides us,
back to the safety
of our mother's
loving and soothing cocoon.
No invitations needed...
she is waiting and ready.

In our mother's presence,
we are our most natural selves.
We don't need to hide behind pretense.
We don't need to pretend or posture.
We can just be.

In those moments of
JUST BEING,
we deeply feel the invisible thread,
that vibrates unconditional love and acceptance.

It is that thread,
with it's absolute strength and constance,
which enables and empowers us
in our life stories.
It also gives us courage
to visit and face
that which needs rebirthing.

Distance, separation, or death
cannot break the thread.
It was created upon birth,
and extends itself timelessly.

The thread is weaved into
the essence of both mother and child...
intertwining and texturizing,
their individual and collective
truths and authenticity.
