THOUGHTS ON BEING A WOMAN
Why is it that women are so susceptible to suffering? Why is it that we carry so much guilt? Why do we try and be the peacemakers, while the world around us doesn't seem to even notice the chaos?
I don't usually use this word, but it's warranted ... I hate that women don't realize their power. We more than create life - for that we need a male contribution - but we nourish it. We are lucky enough to be the ones who have a human being grow and develop within our own bodies. If it wasn't for us, that little bundle of cells would never survive and develop into a baby. And yet we take that power for granted and often after giving birth we relinquish our power.
Women make up over half the Earth's population - so where are we? Why are our voices not being heard? Are we not speaking loud enough? Or are we speaking at all? We should be screaming! We should be making demands and taking action ... but we're busy nourishing our children. We don't have the time. We don't even have the time to nourish and take care of ourselves. And that is what needs to change.
So start thinking of yourselves ladies. It's time to detach yourselves from bad relationships, from people who take and take and take and never give back. It's time to stop being "nice" and start being truthful with ourselves and those around us. It's time that we learn about who we all are and we celebrate that. It's time that we start helping one another to realize the power we have.
Just think about it...What kind of world would it be if women came together to make positive change? Certainly one we would be proud to hand over to our children. As it stands right now we are murdering the Earth, the mother of all creation, while we wage war and murder one another over money and dominance - and where does that get us? Right where we are.
Hiding out in our homes. Surrounded by technology that doesn't really connect us to the rest of the world, but continues to isolate us. Do you know your neighbors? Do you know your child's teacher? Do you know your own spouse as well as you'd like to? Don't get me wrong - technology can be wonderful, as long as it compliments, and doesn't alter, our existence.
I've come to the conclusion (well, the idea anyway. It's still doing a lot of spinning in my head and nothing is ever final is it?) that I want to help women. I want to help them help themselves and in turn their families. I want to empower women. I want to help them to believe that they have the power to change the world - afterall, we change it everyday by having and raising our children. What bigger effect can we have than providing the future population of the Earth? I'll tell you ... changing our present by changing ourselves.
