All Life Is Sacred, All Births Are Sacred

JUNE 2021

A human life encompasses such a wide range of experience: joy and sadness; ease and agitation; tenderness and triumph; passion and quietude. So, what might it mean to live in continuous alignment with the sacred? Is it possible to see all life and every moment—even the most challenging ones—as sacred?

Yes! It is indeed possible to live this way: open to the deepest knowing and most intimate mystery of our Being. It may require a bit of exploration, a bit of experimentation, to initiate the process. But if your interest is genuine, then eventually such an orientation—a way of seeing everything as sacred—will become completely natural, like coming home.

Seeing all life as sacred nourishes a childlike sense of wonder and awe. It sets the stage for so-called miracles. Appreciation, gratitude, contentment, and ease become our default settings. Our life becomes a living prayer: every thought, word and gesture effortlessly evoking and emanating the Divine.

When we know all moments as sacred, then we also know that every birth is sacred. Whatever the contours of your birthing experience may be—a vaginal birth or a c-section; at your home or in a hospital; with or without an epidural; with or without a midwife or doula assisting you; in water or on land; with or without fetal heart monitoring—it is sacred!

So-called emergency births are just as sacred, just as perfect, as any other kind of birth. A scheduled induction is just as sacred, just as perfect, as any other kind of birth. A birth in a tub of warm water and a birth in a home or hospital bed—are equally miraculous!

So, what do all these (at least potentially) have in common? What makes them equally sacred? It is the Presence, the mindfulness, the awake awareness that you bring to the experience.

With vibrant Presence comes an underlying sense of safety and contentment, and natural healing power. When our mindfulness is bright, then unexpected mishaps are not a problem—just an interesting contour of our human experience. When we know ourselves as the awake awareness at the core of our being, we are satisfied, completely—and able to relate skillfully to whatever circumstances arise.

When we access and abide as Presence, all perceptions, actions and events carry the perfume of Presence—shine with the energy of the sacred. Such Presence is the sacred backdrop of every birth. And it is the most precious gift that a mother can give to her newborn, and to herself.
