Renunciation by Mothers
People often talk about the renunciation of wealth and power, about personalities who have practiced it, and how to bring it about in our lives. Renunciation, according to me can be defined, by measuring how much was he or she is attached to the possession being given up. World has witnessed great philanthropists giving up their empire, wealth, titles and even business empires for the sake of humanity. The main matter to talk about is when to call it renunciation. At which point? When something very dear to you ceases to matter to you, is renunciation. Giving it up for the sake of mankind’s welfare would mean deeper attachment with the welfare, in turn graduating to the next level.
The point I wish to make here is, there is unnamed and unrecognized renunciation, of the highest level, occurring in billions of homes across the world. This renunciation, is the renunciation of the very force that drives man towards manifestation. It’s the renunciation of “dreams”. These dreams are those, of the women which they had seen as young girls, which they exchanged for a better life of their children. Once a mother, these wonderful dreams cease to appear as important, as their helpless child in need of physical and emotional nourishment.
This thought drives me to establish the theory to be true, why women become active catalyst in major changes in the world. Their silent energy is the potential platform through which the divine creates and manifests. Thus feminine power is so much talked about in ancient mythologies. Because they knew, there is nothing called “the renunciation of power”, but there is only one thing that resonates with the theory of glorious feminine greatness, “the power of renunciation”. The moment you renunciate for a greater cause, you align yourself with the mystic law of cause effect, thus become more powerful and enlightened human being.
In the world everywhere we celebrate the women power in the forms of many goddesses, let us make a start by identifying that very energy within the epitomes at our own homes and being mindful of their keen attempts to make life better for us.
