The Tao of Motherhood
by Vimala McClure
The empty spaces make wholeness.
The emptiness in a pot makes it valuable; you can fill it with food or water.
Pay attention to what isn’t.
Listen for what your child does not say.
Observe what she does not do.
Similarly, know that your child uses your empty spaces.
What you do not say resounds.
What you do not do impresses.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers…we walk this privileged path together.
