Motherhood: The Ultimate Act of Creation

Nature has given us very few relations and mother is the most pious relation on earth. Father can be more caring and supportive but mother is always more close to children. The reason behind can’t be defined as final verdict. We can say that she is the first face, child see after birth, she give the first touch and transfer the sense of security to child’s mind. We can also count many other reasons like, she support child physically, emotionally and mentally. Every society, every religion has given respect to this relation.

I am taking this topic as I am feeling overwhelmed with memories of my mother. Like always I remember her, particularly when I need some inner support to face hard realities of life. She is not in this world but she is always there in my heart and soul.

Why this feeling exist, particularly for mothers? Perhaps mothers are always near to your existence. You always feel attached. What makes a woman, a mother? Women become ‘a mother’ and she starts feeling differently. I was reading a note by a mother. She explained very minutely her feeling. She admitted that motherhood taught her love that, she never knew before. Of course she loved her husband, parents, brothers, sisters and even close-friends but motherhood created ‘burning love’ for her child. The kind of love that you feel the real pain, when the person you love is in pain. When the love is so deep, every fiber of your existence wishes well being, prosperity and happiness of person with whom you are in love.The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. Earlier the woman existed, but not the mother. A mother is something absolutely new after the birth of child.

Osho added new dimensions to the meaning of motherhood. In his words ‘Just to give birth to a child is one thing – to be a mother is totally different. Any woman can give birth to a child; that’s a very simple phenomenon. But to be a mother needs great art, needs great under-standing.’ He says that mothers are creating human beings and this is the greatest creation. A painter paint a picture, a poet writes beautiful poems and we call them great painter and great poet but what about mothers who created them.

Creating a human being is not just the process of nine months only but the real task, the real work starts when the child is born. Culture, way of life and finally civilization, all starts with mothers. Protecting and helping a child to grow into a beautiful human being is certainly an ultimate act of creation.

Being mother is an opportunity, a God given opportunity to be a creator. Mothers are all time in process of this creation. There is a popular saying, when you are a mother; you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.

Dedicated to memories of my mother.

Dear Jaspal,

I would like to add something in ur article as i always wanted to touch this topic but culdnt gather words for its expression as mother is creator and generator.She is one who sleeps in wet and keeps her child in dry.she bear all pains on her before any reaching her child.Mother is a reflection of God on earth as god cannot exist physically everywhere so to care for his kids he created mother.The first word a child speaks is "Maa"which in itself explains the bound between a child and a mother.I really liked your hub and i would wait for something like this from you at earliest.

Dear Jaspal,

Mother is one who conceives and carries the child in her womb as nobody carries anybody, she feds the fetus fruits of her heart which nobody feeds anybody, and protects it during pregnancy with her ears, hands, legs, hair, limbs……in short with her whole being, gladly, cheerfully and carefully; suffering patiently all the worries, pains, difficulties and sorrows of pregnancy till the hand of God removes the child from her and bring it into this world.

But she too is a mother who suddenly snaps and kills her newborn child because she could not stand his incessant crying.

nice hub voted up.

A hub with such a beautiful thought. Your hub title attracted me because I too wrote two hubs recently, one on Mother's Day and other on Father's Day. It was my way of giving tribute to my wonderful parents who are no more and I miss them badly. Voted up and it is beautiful.

@UrsulaRose. Thanks for your VALUABLE comment. Here i am sharing what Charles Chaplin said somewhere, 'It seems to me that my mother was the most splendid woman I ever knew....I have met a lot of people knocking around the world since, but I have never met a more thoroughly refined woman than my mother. If I have amounted to anything, it will be due to her'
