Selfless Desire

In both men and women, especially in women, there is a bottomless desire to reproduce their own kind. This is not a creation of communal conditioning. The satisfactions and creative opportunities are well recognized. A woman bears the tenderness caused by the pains of labor, but she forgets them in the joy of construction. She is fundamentally not the object of man’s desire, but is the mother, the creator, the leader. It is the benefit of a mother to bring up her children, to help them to build up their distinctive gifts, physical and mental, ethical and spiritual. Treat your mother as a goddess and this is the order of the scriptures. Marriage without motherhood is deficient.
