45. THE MOTHER
Please scroll down for description and statement
The Girl is now a mother and sits, holding her tiny baby, at the centre of a mandala consisting of a ring of lotus flowers.
There is a beautiful idea for those who believe in rebirth: everyone we meet has at one time or another been our mother. If we hold this idea, it changes how we view and interact with people. We become more loving, more considerate.
If we take this further, we see that everyone we meet has at one time been our child. This, too, would make us more loving, more understanding, and perhaps somewhat protective of others.
Mother love is about as close as most of us can come to experiencing unconditional love.
