“The Power of Love” by Simone Boger (part 1)

 

The Power of Love begins with a quote by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin from his book called~Toward the Future:

“Some day, after mastering winds, waves ,tides, and gravity; we shall harness for God the energy of love, and then, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”

As I read this book, I was moved by Boger’s description of a poignant experience and description of God as the Divine Mother/Divya Mata:

“There are times we feel our lives are not what we expected.  

It is as if the external world does not match our innermost needs, or maybe we are not to use our capacities and talents as we would have wished.  It can be frustrating, especially when it occurs over a long period of time.

This is often the cause behind depression, a lack of self-esteem and more severe illnesses.

We may think this is part of life, and accept that most people are suffering in one form or another from deprivation or loss. Economic crises and civil wars are currently triggering it collectively.  It is difficulat to talk about inner comfort with those who do not have a piece of bread.  It is at such moments that we most need peace, love, and acknowledgement.

There is no easy way to present God as the Mother, because words cannot convey her warmth and compassion or her attempts to save her children from suffering.  When we’re in any relationship with God, the One is always present anyway, and there is never a cold shoulder from the Divine One’s side.  

In the form of the Mother, she is always there, welcoming us with the vibrations and vision of sustenance.

The Mother knows the causes behind life’s events, for just like the Father, her vision penetrates time.  Because she knows the invisible roots of situations, our failures or weaknesses do not color her vision but are seen rather as temporary and perfectly conquerable.  

Her task is to give unconditional support and help in our healing and transformation... God as the Mother empowers us with presence.  

Maybe this is the reason why in India the divine feminine is symbolically shown in the form of powers-as shaktis.  There are a number of archetypes of goddesses who in fact personify spiritual attainments that can be received through meditation.

Knowing who we are and how we feel, God never underestimates our capability of overcoming obstacles and developing further.  As the Divine Mother, she takes care of our internal needs through supportive vibrations, making sure we know how to access Her Power and put things right inside so that everything else can fall into place.

When I think of the many experiences of God as my parents, I remember a time when I was gently led through a very big situation.  The Motherly face became clearly manifested over that entire period and especially on one particular day when, sitting in a mediation room, I experienced God’s “tears’ for me.

I know that at this point people may, justifiably, think this is all imagination or plain nonesense.  Yet, though not physical, the kind of heartfelt empathy I received was almost tangible.  

That experience formed an unbreakable bond between Mother and child.  It also became an important lesson in my own understanding of God’s role, because those “tears” came after a very intense period of the Mother trying to save the child from sorrow. From then on,

I learned to accept the fact that even though God is limitless in many ways, natural laws rule the show down here.

While the Father wishes for us to develop a higher form of reasoning so that we can succeed in our endeavors, the Mother is happy expressing her unbounded love and nurturing.  She cannot bear to see the weaknesses of those she loves.  This is the purity of her heart.  

Seeing the present world situation, Her desire is for Her children not to scatter their energies in useless circumstances and obstacles, but to learn how to make their present and future elevated. {p63-65,Boger}
