You - The Woman...


Shouldn't I realize

Your the hightest of the high

If you don't know that then I'll say it

So don't ever wonder
-
Maxwell

This is a dedication to all the wonderful moms - to all of the cool sisters - to all of the supportive wives - to all of the loving daughters - to all of the magnificent teachers, attorneys, business owners. This message is to one of the most prestigious and extraordinary Beings - you - the woman!

We women love others unconditionally but sometimes forget that we have a relationship with ourselves. That relationship with ourselves sometimes causes us pain when we perceive that the people we love unconditionally "hurt" us. The relationship I'm referring to is the fact that we set expectations on what we "think" we should do and how we "think" people should respond to what we do. "When you have a relationship with yourself, you have split yourself into two: "I" and "myself," subject and object. That mind-created duality is the root cause of all unnecessary complexity, of all problems and conflict in your life. In the state of enlightenment, you are yourself - "you" and "yourself" merge into one," per Mr. Tolle.

This concept of a relationship with ourselves is dissolved when we accept what is and just BE. We do not have to strike out. We do not have to judge ourselves or others harshly or at all. We do not become the victims. We don't have to correct anything because we see nothing needs to be corrected, maybe addressed, but not corrected. In this day and time when women feel we must carry so much of the "burden," we have to ask ourselves, is it really a burden or is that how we see it? In fact, the "burden" may be "self-reflective consciousness." We want to awaken so our Beings choose this "burden." This thought of "burden" that we carefully position on our shoulders can really be understood as our road to enlightment.

Understand that you are magnificent with or without someone to love you. You are incredibly brave to step out on faith even if it appears that there is no support for you. You bring the strength. You bring the love. You bring the peace. You bring YOU - the beautiful, intelligent, phenomenal woman that you are. Just BE you! No expectations, no sorrow, no pain and definitely no drama!

I celebrate you - the woman. We are strong, we are beautiful and we are life!

Happy Love Thursday You Intriguing Woman!

Listen to your heart: Maxwell - Ascension (Don't ever wonder)

This is a wonderful piece of writing!
You are so right. BE. The perceived "burden" is immediately released when we accept that what will be will be.

I love this post...needed it.

Happy Love Thursday!

every wednesday i get together with three other girlfriends for lunch and then we study torah with a very orthodox rabbi for two hours. every week we say the same thing as we sit down at the same table in the diner, "it feels so good to be here". it feels good to be here with you as well.

We are large, we contain multitudes, to paraphrase a wee bit. It's a wonderful feeling to just accept yourself with all of your complexities and just don't worry about a thing.
