Kent Nerburn: On Parenthood
There is one place where perfection of the heart is given to us in all it's fullness--parenthood. When you look upon a child you have been given, there are no limitations and reservations. You are looking with a perfect love.
This is only natural. A child is born with a perfect love and dependance on it's parents. In the perfection of it's love, it calls forth the perfection of yours. In it's innocence, it opens up a place of innocence in you. Something pure is communicated that can never be understood by those who have never looked into the eyes of an infant whose very survival is in their hands.
If you have a chance at parenthood, look upon it with a sense of mystery and awe. You are given the joy of watching life afresh, and the chance to help another being take flight into the richness and mystery of life. The very clay of which our world is made is, for a brief moment, placed in your hands.
