“You Are The Result of the Love of Thousands” a post by Anita (re-blogged)

A beautiful post to help us realize our inter-connectedness as a human family! Thank you Anita!

One Light. One Source.

“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. 

Suddenly all my ancestors are behind me. 

Be still, they say. Watch and listen. 

You are the result of the love of thousands.”

Recently, I completed a mitochondrial DNA test (mtDNA) to determine my motherline ancestry.  What does this mean, exactly?  To put it simply, my mtDNA connects me directly to my mother, her mother, her mother’s mother, her grandmother’s mother, and every direct mother linkage before that, going back in time for thousands of years!   It can only be passed on from mother to daughter, so it uniquely connects a woman to her direct maternal ancestors, and therefore provides a window into the actual origins of our mothers and their mothers.  My mtDNA test determined that my motherline belongs to a group identified on the human family tree as Haplogroup T2 (and more specifically, T2c1d1).

  1. Like you, I often think of my ancestors, I pray to them and one day I will embrace them all–now, this is Hope!

  2. Dear Amira

    Another hobby of mine is also genealogy and I succeeded to go back to the 17 century already. It is indeed really interesting where we come from and with the help of DNA, you can see on a map where all your ancestors, even many thousand years ago, come from.
    A great hobby 🙂

    All good wishes
    From heart to heart
