AN ENLIGHTENED WOMAN

What’s an “enlightened” woman like?

She has patience, wisdom beyond her years, and an irresistible sense of humor –
She’s spontaneous and spiritually free –
A person anyone would want to become friends with
Even if they only passed her once in the street.

What does leadership from such a woman look like?

Like family – a loving family –
Where everyone’s supported to be themselves
Where everyone gets what they need and aren’t ashamed of asking for it –
But, also, the kind of leadership Alexander once demonstrated –
Running out ahead of his army – straight towards the enemy –
So fast everyone had to run even faster to catch up and protect him –
A woman, like that, running out in front of us all.

What values does such a woman have?

Love, for sure – a person convinced about the effectiveness of love –
Someone who tells the truth – (there’s never doubt about anything she says) –
Justice, of course – everyone rightfully expects they’ll be treated fairly by such a woman –
And she’s peerlessly beautiful – especially in spirit
Which shines radiantly through her face, eyes, and gestures –
Just being near her feels like we’ve arrived in Heaven –
The angels singing “yes, yes, yes.”

What does an enlightened woman look like?

Like a female Messiah –
Like an Avatar of God –
Or even “God in human form” – perhaps like Jesus – come back female.

Let’s resist building temples for her – that would be too much of a male thing to do –
And simply start rejoicing when she finally arrives.

THE WOMEN ARE COMING

The women are coming – a large group of leaders –
Who’re different from the men –
They’re people with a sense of humor
Who’re capable of laughing at themselves –
And, maybe even, good humoredly, at you!

The women are coming – and it’s about time –
The last man, the worst man, ruling now
Is daily shocking the world with how low men can go.

The resentful portion of the white population has been perpetuating this clown “king”
And he’s been ruling – just like he said he would –
Children, women, and people of color
Running to get out of his way.

Yes, the women are arriving – and just in the nick of time –
We really need them!
Not a bunch of “Marys” or “Marthas,” but a strong group of political “Messiahs”
Strewing miracles all over the face of America –
Each of our society’s tears turning into joy.

The men who’ve belatedly become ashamed of archaic paternalistic roles
Have been supporting these women –
Especially since such men no longer feel compelled to embody male hardness or violence
And, as a result, they’ve developed a deep yearning for mature sane women,
As well as for all the young energetic mothers
Who’ve recently expressed a strong desire to put our nation’s house back in order.

God says: “It’s the women’s turn now –
Please, get out of the way!”

SPIRIT LIKE THE WIND

The Spirit is “like the wind”
But what does this mean?

It means that if you ever find yourself in a corner
And, using all your strength, you can’t get out –
There’ll always be a door available –
If you only put your hand out.

It also means that even if you become as successful as a movie star
The next thing that happens might be some kind of personal disaster.

It means that life frequently is outside one’s control –
So you’ll have to be brave
And humble
And, often, you’ll need to be both at the same time!

It means that God sometimes has a somewhat severe sense of humor –
But just not a malicious one.

In fact, you wouldn’t even be alive without wind –
Which is the same as your breath –
Especially since you don’t even need to think about breathing –
Because it’s unconscious – the same as your “true self.”

The moment this “true self” becomes fully conscious, you’ll find yourself enlightened –
This is at the core of what Jesus, the Buddha, and Mohammed
Were all trying to teach us!
