This mother is not holding her head and screaming into space over the loss of her child, but gently supporting and tenderly gazing at the fruit of her womb.  So it is for her and so may it be for all mothers and their babies.  Amen

I have been blessed and fortunate to have been one to be in the presence of Amma Chi on several occasions.  I am one that can testify to the purity of the water that flows from this fountain.

Emmanuel ~ Another Miracle

To babies, the ordinary is extraordinary. From the moment they are born, they are full of wonder. Like artists, they study each intricate detail of our face, discovering every line, pimple, freckle, or mole. They are seeing the world for the first time! Everything is fresh, new — everything is an object of wonder — even a piece of lint, a strand of hair, a button on a sweater.

Remember how you felt when you first saw the ocean? The blinking lights on the Christmas tree? A movie in 3D? When we see the world through a child’s bright, little eyes, we experience anew our own childlike sense of wonder.

Wonder is not reserved for children, but they do help us to re-awaken to it in ourselves and the world around us.
