“Ms Ong, is that Mother Mary?” a young voice rang out during zoom tuition.
The kids on zoom saw the painting of the Madonna behind me as I adjusted my notebook.
“Yes, she’s the Perfect Mother. She knows when to hold on and when to let go,” I explained.
When I assured the kids that Mother is always watching our zoom meetings, the girls smiled and one of the boys started singing, “Let it Be.”
To soothe a fearful child or animal, we often hold them close to our chest. And babies and animals often place their hands or paws on the heart area of those who are cuddling them.
It’s an honour to have one’s heart physically touched like this, and perhaps even healed.
So hand on heart, on this Mothers’ Day, may I wish that all male & female hearts be touched and healed of all imbalances, for our own benefit, and for the benefit of all sentient beings. 🙏🌈🐾
